Trek's Fuel EX line has exactly what the rest of the mountain bike world has been chasing: Award-winning performance.

The Fuel EX 8 29 is a rolling technology demonstrator. Everything that Trek does well in mountain bikes, you'll find on the Fuel EX 8. A rugged, super-strong frame built with Trek's own shaped and hydroformed Alpha Platinum Aluminum ensures flex-free power delivery and suspension response. A press-fit PF92 bottom bracket keeps the crankset flex-free, while a tapered E2 head tube helps keep the front wheel aimed where you point it. Need a world-class suspension for rock gardens and root "fun houses"? Look no further than the Fuel EX 8's Active Braking Pivot -or ABP- rear suspension geometry. Hard braking won't stiffen up the ABP rear triangle, no matter how ugly the descents get! The rear shock is mounted in a Full Floater mount, making the Fuel EX responsive to washboard surfaces and hard landings alike. An alloy EVO rear suspension link keeps the rear wheel and shock from getting twisty in technical turns. The rear shock itself is an air-adjustable Fox Performance Float EVOL unit with Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv 3-position damper. With the ability to bring almost "bottomless" suspension travel to the Fuel EX 8, the rear ABP suspension and Fox shock helps keep the rear tire planted. An air-adjustable Fox Rhythm 34 Float suspension fork does control duties up front, while the front hub's thru-axle adds even more razor-sharpness to the bike's overall handling. In case the trail gets a little too gnarly, Trek has your back with a Knock Black steerer stop in the headset. Spinning forks and damaged down tubes are a thing of the past, and the new, uncurved down tube adds a bit more torsional strength to the Fuel EX 8's long list of qualities.

Shimano's 11-speed Deore XT shifters and Shadow Plus rear derailleur are paired with a Deore front derailleur for perfect operation in muddy and messy conditions. A 36/26T Deore XT crankset and 11-42T cassette boast a massive gearing range for roller-coaster singletrack. Reigning in speed is the job of a set of Shimano Doere hydraulic disc brakes for effortless stopping power, rain or shine. Bontrager Duster Elite alloy wheels are tubeless-ready, and are shod with Bontrager's 29x2.4" XR3 Expert tires for confident grip on technical trails. Bontrager's latest alloy Line stem and handlebars are ultra-strong for improved handling. A KS eThirty Integra alloy dropper post can get the Bontrager Evoke saddle out of the way with the press of a remote lever.
