The Trek Fuel EX 8 Plus Mountain Bike 2018 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 go-to trail bike.

Alpha Platinum aluminium is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points, and hydroformed into sophisticated tube shapes for maximum streangth and minimum weight. The Straight Shot downtube 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 Trek Fuel EX 2018 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 into one uncompromising package.

  • 130mm frame is more capable and 29" or 27.5+ compatible
