The world’s best-loved mountain bike keeps getting better. Fuel EX 8 continues to set the bar for full suspension trail bike versatility, bringing race-day tech to all-day adventure.
- Full Floater: Trek solved that with Full Floater, attaching the shock to two moving linage points so it can better respond to bumps across a wide variety of terrain. It feels like more travel, but it’s not! It’s smarter travel.
- EVO Link: Exclusive EVO Link system connects the main frame to the rear triangle with a one-piece rocker link, creating a stiffer frame for greater control with minimal weight.
- Boost 148/110 : Wider dropouts (110mm front, 148mm rear) give you the stiffness of a 27.5” wheel with all the benefits of a 29” wheel, and Boost 148 in the rear lets you run winder tires and a larger chaining without affecting q-factor and pedalling efficiency.
- Down tube guard: Replaceable external shield protects the down tube from trail debris
- ABP – Active Breaking Pivot: Allows your suspension to work freely whether you’re on the brake or off. Smooth, controlled suspension that’s at its best all the time.
- Control freak cable management: keeps the frame clean and allows for the ultimate custom setup.
- Mino Link adjustable geometry: Choose between a slack a slacker geometry without affecting suspension performance
