The Fuel EX 8 is the ideal 29er trail bike for mountain bikers who want a versatile full-suspension ripper that can climb with the XC crowd and huck with the enduro crew. It hits the sweet spot of value and performance with an Alpha Aluminium frame, 130 mm front and rear suspension, and Shimano XT 2x11 drivetrain.

You're cool with your wheels leaving the ground, but you also like to go the distance on marathon single-track sessions and aim to clear every rock garden on the first try. You want exceptional trail bike performance, with the same MTB frame and suspension tech found on higher-end trail bikes, at exceptional value.

A lightweight Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame, Shimano 2x11 drivetrain with a wide-range 11-42 cassette, Tubeless Ready Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive hub for quick engagement, a dropper post for on-the-fly saddle height adjustments. The 130 mm front and rear FOX suspension with Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv damper is enough to go big while staying fast on the flats and climbs.

It's a trail bike that is fully at capable keeping up with whatever you throw at it. It has the same frame and suspension tech found on our top-of-the-line trail bikes, with a wide-range 2x11 Shimano drivetrain. This means that there are smaller gaps between gears, so you can always find the right cadence for your terrain.
- If you measure quality in performance per pound, you won't do better than Fuel EX 8
- You sense its capability immediately, like when you're charging through sections of trail that you never thought you'd clean
- It's great for riders who don't want to do just one kind of mountain biking, but who want to explore everything from XC marathons to epic descents
- The shifter-style, underbar remote dropper post lever is super intuitive and easy to use
