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. You want a bike that lets you crush any trail, and your priority is on the parts.
The tech you get
A lightweight aluminum frame, 140mm FOX Rhythm 34 fork, and 130mm of rear travel with an extra-efficient RE:aktiv damper. A SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain with an extra-low 52-tooth climbing gear, plus a Bontrager Line dropper post.
The final word
Fuel EX 8 gives you added efficiency with SRAM's latest, widest-range drivetrain and Trek's unique RE:aktiv damper that provides firm pedaling support without giving up any plush compliance.
