Product Details

Fuel EX 8 is the ideal trail bike for mountain bikers who want a versatile full suspension ripper that can crush marathon and multi-stage races and still huck with the enduro crew.

It hits the sweet spot of value and performance in our mountain bike lineup with an Alpha Aluminium frame, 140mm front and 130mm rear suspension, and SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain.
 
It's right for you if...
You're cool with your wheels leaving the ground, but you also like to go the distance on marathon singletrack 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 an exceptional value.
 
The tech you get
A lightweight Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame, a 140mm FOX Rhythm 34 fork and 130mm of rear travel with a FOX Performance Float shock with Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv damper—it's enough suspension to go big while staying fast on the flats and climbs. A SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain with a wide-range 10-50 cassette, Tubeless Ready Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels, Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes, and a Bontrager Line dropper post for on-the-fly saddle height adjustments.
 
The final word
It's a trail bike that is fully 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 SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain that delivers a huge range of gearing with the simplicity of a single shifter.
 
Why you'll love it
This bike is perfect for shredding singletrack, hitting drops, and pushing your limits in multi-stage and marathon events
If you measure quality in performance per dollar, you won't do better than Fuel EX 8
You sense its capability immediately, like when you're charging through sections of trail you never thought you'd clean
 The shifter-style, underbar remote dropper post lever is super intuitive and easy to use
We expanded our size range to ensure a better fit for all riders. And, you get the fastest wheel that fits your frame: XS frames get 27.5? wheels, S frames get to choose between 27.5? or 29?, and sizes M to XL get 29? wheels
