‘This is a bike that could be used to head out for a big meandering backcountry adventure one day, roll up to the starting line in a local enduro race the next or even head into the bike park for a lap or three without missing a beat.’Read more

Internal frame storage makes it easy to ditch the pack and still carry your ride essentials.
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.
Install angle-adjust headset cups (sold separately) to tweak the 64.5-degree head tube angle a degree steeper or slacker to your liking – all without impacting your bottom bracket height.
Adjust the leverage rate with just a flip of a chip. Ride it in the Less progressive setting for a plusher feel perfect for rugged trails with square-edge bumps. Flip it to More progressive when you're hitting big features and don’t want to bottom-out, or when you want to run a coil shock.
Size-specific chainstays provide balanced handling to keep the ride nimble for smaller riders and improve front wheel traction on climbs for taller riders.
Craving the nimble ride of 27.5˝ wheels but don’t want to sacrifice the speed of a 29er? No need to choose. The Fuel EX is mullet-ready, just throw Mino Link into high, toss on a 160 mm fork and get ready to party.
Shimano XT is the original mountain bike groupset and trusted by generations of mountain bikers around the world. Whatever the trail, wherever you ride, XT is your solution for mountain biking today. Reliable shifting. Superior braking. Intuitive maintenance. XT is the high performance workhorse you can count on.
This bike doesn’t come with pedals because you'll have a better ride if you choose your own. Explore the pedal guide to find the best pedals for your riding style. Reach for flat pedals for simple versatility or go for clipless MTB pedals if you want control and efficiency.
The forward-thinking frame design opens possibilities for riders who want full customisation. A bigger seat tube lets you roll with a beefier, longer dropper post, and broader shock compatibility plays well with loads of aftermarket shocks, including coil.
More robust than pressfit, threaded BBs hold up in nasty conditions and make servicing easier.
The two-piece dual-density bolt-on down tube guard protects from rock strikes and shuttle damage – all while quieting the ride with a beefy chainstay guard.
International Standard Chain-Guide mounts offer easy chain-guide installation and adjustment.
