 Trek's Fuel EX 5 is a fantastic introduction to high-performance mountain biking without the high price. And the fit is excellent, too!

The Fuel EX series carries plenty of trail-ready moves, and makes every rider better. When Trek began producing the Fuel EX 5 in a version that fit female riders better, it gave more riders a chance to challenge themselves. Smaller, lighter riders not only need a better-fitting bike, but one that can also be adjusted for their weight and skill level. The Fuel EX 5 starts with a lightweight Alpha Platinum aluminum frame that keeps overall weight low for challenging climbs. The fit of the Fuel EX 5 Women's is not only different in frame sizes, but also smaller wheel sizes. The two smallest frame sizes (14 and 15.5") get a 27.5" wheel, while the two larger sizes feature larger 29" wheels. This provides a more proportional saddle-to-handlebar reach for a wider range of riders. The front and rear suspension of the Fuel EX 5 Women's is air-adjustable, allowing a wider range of rider weights to be more comfortable on varying terrain. Elastomer suspension just doesn't have the range of adjustment that air-adjustability has.

With a tapered head tube, wide PF92 bottom bracket and Straight Shot down tube, the Fuel EX 5 boasts a very rigid platform for improved pedaling response and more precise handling. The ABP rear suspension geometry helps keep the rear wheel planted on rough trails and rock gardens, while being unaffected by braking forces. The upper shock mount is a pivoting EVO link that resists lateral twisting that would work against the rear shock. The lower Full Floater shock mount helps the rear shock respond better to washboard-style trails as well. Useful details abound on the Fuel EX 5, like a down-tube mounted frame guard, Control Freak internal cable routing, and a Knock Block steerer stop that prevents the fork crown from denting the down tube in the event of a crash. An air-adjustable RockShox Deluxe RL rear shock provides 130mm of suspension travel at the back. Up front, an air-adjustable RockShox Sektor Silver RL suspension fork aids in handling challenging singletrack. A TurnKey lockout function can switch off the front suspension for climbing fire roads and pavement.

Shimano's 10-speed Deore shifters operate a Deore front derailleur and Deore Shadow rear derailleur for lightning-quick gear changes and long service life. A Race Face 22/36T crankset and 11-36T Shimano cassette add a huge gearing range to the Fuel EX 5 for challenging climbs and roller-coaster trails. Helping to reign in speed is the job of a set of Shimano hydraulic disc brakes. A Bontrager alloy SSR seatpost, alloy Rhythm Comp stem, alloy Bontrager handlebar and Bontrager Evoke 1.5 WSD saddle complete this off-road conquerer.
