The 2020 Fuel EX 8 XT by TREK is tailor-made for those mountain biking enthusiasts who are looking for a multi-purpose, full-suspension trail bike that has the capacity not just for those gruelling marathon and multi-stage races but is agile enough to manoeuvre with the enduro crew. Balancing value and performance, this mountain bike features an Alpha Aluminium frame, front suspension of 140mm, rear suspension of 130mm, and a 12-speed Shimano XT drive train.

This bike is a perfect fit for you if you like a bit of air under your wheels but also cherish those long-lasting marathon sessions on the singletrack or if you simply like the challenge of clearing rock gardens at first attempt. Providing extraordinary trail bike performance, the 2020 Fuel Ex 8 XT offers advanced MTB frame and suspension tech commonly found on higher-end trail bikes but at a cost that offers exceptional value.

It has a light Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame coupled with a FOX Rhythm 34 140mm fork and a 130mm rear travel FOX Performance Float Shock with TREK's exclusive RE:aktiv damper. Offering enough suspension to allow you to go big but also maintain speed on flat areas and climbs. Featuring a 1x12 Shimano XT drive train along with wide-range 10-51 cassette, the Tubeless Ready Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels, reliable Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes and a Bontrager Line dropper post which allows on-the-fly saddle height adjustments.

Built to handle any challenge, the 2020 Fuel Ex 8 XT rivals our flagship trail bikes, matching their frame and suspension tech and featuring a Shimano XT 1x12 drive train. This bike is designed for making the most of singletrack, hitting drops and pushing limits in multi-stage and marathon events. Guaranteeing unrivalled quality measured in performance per pound, the Fuel EX 8 has capabilities that allow you to conquer sections of trail you’d never thought of cleaning. Equipped with a shifter-style, underbar remote dropper post lever that is intuitive and easy-to-use.

With an aim for optimal standover height, the design features smaller frames (XS and S) with a top tube that dips down as it gets near the seat tube. This caters for shorter riders, allowing for easier straddling of the bike. Larger frames (M & upwards) feature a straight top tube accommodating taller riders with longer legs who don't usually have standover height issues.

Employing the Active Braking Pivot, our engineers have created a suspension that counters acceleration and braking forces independently. This results in greater control and confidence when it matters most.

The incorporation of RE:aktiv technology offers firm pedalling support which instantly yields to offer smooth control when the trail gets rough.

Using TREK’s Straight Shot frame design optimises the stiffness-to-weight ratio resulting in a more responsive ride. This feature lets you push harder and remain more grounded on your path, even when the trail becomes challenging.
