It's right for you if...

You want a ride that's sure-footed, capable, and responsive so you can stay in control no matter where you're riding. You prefer the fit and feel of a women's mountain bike, and want dependable parts, versatility, and confidence-inspiring 27.5˝ mid-fat wheels at a great value. 

The tech you get

A lightweight Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame with a lower standover height on the 14˝ and 15.5˝ frame sizes, a saddle designed specifically for women, narrower bars for a better fit and more control, and 27.5+ tires for traction on rugged trails. Plus, Boost148/110 hub spacing for added strength and tire clearance, a durable Shimano 10-speed drivetrain, and fully adjustable RockShox air suspension.

The final word

If you want full suspension performance without the full suspension price tag, Fuel EX 5 is it. Women's specific touchpoints, 130mm of travel, exclusive suspension tech, and a Shimano 1x10 drivetrain make for an ideal intro to the world of full suspension trail riding.

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.
