Trek's Fuel EX 8 27.5 elevates the trail bike to make a ride that lets you push your own limits, as well as those of a 120mm-travel bike. Chalk that up to its 27.5-inch tubeless-ready, thru-axle wheels and 120mm of Fox suspension. That travel is controlled with Trek's ABP rear end and Full Floater linkage that keeps your rear wheel in full control, even during hard, fast braking. The aluminum frame is done right with an E2 head tube, aggressive geometry, and excellent stiffness throughout. A Shimano 2x10 drivetrain deliver crisp, quick shifts every time, and you're armed with Shimano Deore discs and a Bontrager cockpit. Go ahead, push the limits, the Fuel EX 8 is ready.

Trek’s premium lightweight aluminum is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points for ultimate weight reduction and superior strength. Frames built with Trek’s Alpha Platinum aluminum are hydroformed to create the most sophisticated shapes for the lightest weight, and are finished using their smooth-weld process.

Trek's Full Floater shock mount boasts two suspended points that allow the shock to "float" through its range of action for seemingly bottomless travel and excellent tracking over every type of terrain.
Trek's EVO rocker link is a one-piece, magnesium linkage that drastically increases rear-end stiffness and decreases total frame weight, too.
Trek's E2 head tube is 1.5-inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8-inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems and not adding much weight.
