It's right for you if...

You want to build up one single full suspension bike that's super fun to ride on a wide variety of trails. You're looking for a frame that's designed for both efficiency and shred-ability.

The tech you get

A lightweight Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame with Mino Link adjustable geometry, a 115mm Fox Performance Float shock with 2-position DPS damper, Knock Block headset, and Control Freak internal cable routing. Designed for a 120mm fork, but can handle up to 130mm of fork travel.

The final word

If you want a high-value foundation for a full suspension bike that's fast and fun on both flow trails and technical descents, Top Fuel AL is the place to start.

The Walkthrough

  3. Mino Link lets you make small adjustments to your geometry quickly and easily, even mid-ride
  4. You get a Straight Shot down tube for extra stiffness in the rough and Knock Block frame defense to protect against spinning bars and fork crowns

Features

Will my bike have a curved top tube?

Will my bike have a curved top tube?

Smaller frames (S) have a top tube that dips down as it approaches the seat tube. This design makes for a lower standover height, which is good for shorter riders because it allows them to straddle their bike more easily. Larger frames (M and up) have a straight top tube because taller riders with longer legs typically don’t have the same issues with standover height.

Active Braking Pivot

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.

Straight Shot downtube

Straight Shot downtube

Straight Shot downtube gives you an extra-stiff frame without adding any weight, so you can stick your line through the rough stuff and still fly up the next climb.

Knock Block

Knock Block has your frame's back when things go wrong. It prevents your handlebars from spinning all the way around in a crash, so your hoses won't get yanked, and your controls won't hit the top tube.

Sizing & fit

The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local Trek retailer.
