Fuel EX 8 is the ideal trail bike for riders who want a versatile full suspension ripper that makes soul-crushing climbs less painful, but can also huck rowdy trails. It hits the sweet spot of value and performance in our mountain bike lineup by combining high-end parts with a stout but light alloy frame.

 

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.

Features

Active Braking Pivot

Active Braking Pivot allows our engineers to tune how the suspension reacts to acceleration and braking forces independently. That means you get more confident control when you need it most.

RE:aktiv

RE:aktiv technology gives you firm support for efficient pedaling that instantly gives way for smooth control when the trail turns rough.

Will my bike have a curved top tube?

Smaller frames (XS and S) have a top tube that dips down as it approaches the seat tube. This design makes for a lower standover height, which is good for shorter riders because it allows them to straddle their bike more easily. Larger frames (M and up) have a straight top tube because taller riders with longer legs typically don’t have the same issues with standover height.

Straight Shot w/Knock Block

Trek's Straight Shot frame design optimizes the stiffness-to-weight ratio for a more responsive ride. You'll be able to push harder and stay more planted on your line when the going gets rough.
