The world's best-loved mountain bike keeps getting better. Fuel EX continues to set the bar for full suspension trail bike versatility, bringing race-day tech to all-day adventure.


Alpha Platinum Aluminium

Trek's premium aluminium, formed into sophisticated tube shapes for maximum strength and minimum weight.

Down tube guard

Replaceable external shield protects the down tube from trail debris.

ABP Convert

Our patented Active Braking Pivot allows your suspension to work freely whether you’re on the brakes or off. It’s smooth, controlled suspension that’s at its best all the time.

26" wheels

The MTB standard for versatility, light weight, and maneuverability.

E2 tapered head tube

E2 tapers from a 1.5" lower to a 1-1/8" upper, placing more material where it matters most for the stiffness of a full 1.5" system without the added weight.

Fully-integrated head tube

A fully-integrated head tube eliminates the need for headset cups, reducing overall weight without sacrificing performance.

Press-fit bottom bracket

Press-fit BB increases pedalling efficiency and allows for a stronger, stiffer frame structure.

ISCG mounts

International Standard Chain Guide mounts offer easy chain guide installation and adjustment.

Internal derailleur routing

Route your front derailleur cable through the frame to keep your bike running smooth and clean.

Direct-mount derailleur

Derailleur attaches directly to the frame for accurate gear shifting in a lightweight, minimal package.

Post-mount disc brake

Post mounting is the simplest, most efficient way to mount a brake calliper to your bike. Functions great, reduces weight.

Full Floater

We attach the shock to two moving linkage points for greater response over a wide variety of terrain. It feels like more travel, but it’s not. It's smarter travel.

DRCV rear shock

With DRCV, you can have it all: supple small-bump feel, great pedalling efficiency, and seemingly bottomless travel for the big stuff.

DRCV fork

Ride bigger lines, flow through braking bumps with ease, and ride with more control.

Climb-Trail-Descend

CTD gives you three suspension adjustment options: Climb, Trail, or Descend. It’s a simple, intuitive, high-performance system available on select Fox shocks and forks.

Magnesium EVO Link

Our exclusive 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.

15QR

A 15mm front through axle makes steering more precise for more control, and the quick-release feature makes wheel removal easy.

Stealth-ready frame

Frame is prepped for internal routing if you decide to add a remotely adjustable seat post.

3x10

A 10-speed cassette and 3-ring crankset deliver a closer-ratio drivetrain, a wider range of gears, and increased efficiency and durability.

Hydraulic disc brakes

Ultimate control and stopping power in all conditions, including wet and muddy.
