It's right for you if...

You ride more than one type of trail, so you're searching for a versatile trail bike platform that will give you the best bones for a ride that's quick and capable on a variety of terrains.

The tech you get

A lightweight Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame with 130mm of travel and Mino Link adjustable geometry, a FOX shock with Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv damper, and an included Bontrager Line stem and Knock Block headset that prevents damage to the frame from spinning handlebars and fork crown. Built for PF92 bottom bracket, 29˝ or 27.5+ wheels, and a 130mm or 140mm fork.

The final word

Fuel EX AL is burly enough for big features but agile enough for fast group rides and even cross-country racing. It's a great all-around frameset for the mountain biker who doesn't want to do just one kind of riding, but wants to explore all kinds of terrain on a single full-suspension trail bike.
