The Trek Fuel EX 8 27.5 + returns with a major capability boost, with a complete redesign that incorporates more travel, a more aggressive geometry, and the ability to fit both 29″ and 27.5+ wheels, making it the perfect trail bike.
Alpha Platinum aluminium is hydroformed into sophisticated tube shapes for maximum strength and minimum weight. The Straight Shot down tube design creates a straight connection to the steerer tube, leading to a lighter and stiffer frame with minimal material used. Complete with Knock Block technology, which is a keyed stem system that prevents the fork crown from damaging the frame.
Boost148/110 hub spacing creates stronger wheels, with shorter stays and more tyre clearance, allowing the Fuel EX to run with fast, momentum-preserving 29″ wheels or the traction and stability of 27.5+ wheels. Additional features such as Control Freak Internal Cable Management, Mino Link Adjustable geometry & the Active Braking Pivot all help create a more refined ride that feels exactly how you want it to from the top of the mountain to the bottom.
The Fuel EX delivers a rugged, capable long-travel ride with the sprightly manners of an XC bike, blending the best of both worlds .
