When you're through messing around on the "bunny hill" trails, the Fuel EX 5 is ready.

Trek's Fuel EX platform of full-suspension trail bikes is more than ready to take on ugly singletrack. After all, it's been an award-winning mountain bike for years. The Fule EX 5's confidence-inspiring control make every mile more fun. When Trek decided to produce a better-fitting full-suspension machine for women with larger "27.5 Plus" tires, they pulled out all the stops. A wide size range with a down-sloped top tube in the two smallest sizes allows for a shorter standover height. How short? Only 27-1/2" in the smallest 14" size.

The Fuel EX's legendary control begins with a lightweight Alpha Platinum aluminum frame that forms the bike's backbone. A hydroformed main triangle, tapered head tube, press-fit PF92 bottom bracket and a Straight Shot down tube all enhance the Fuel EX 5's torsional strength for maximum power transfer, suspension functionality and precision handling. Out back, Trek's exclusive Active Braking Pivot (or ABP) rear suspension geometry is unaffected by pedaling output or hard braking, just the trail features themselves. A one-piece EVO Link upper suspension rocker resists torsional twisting, allowing the rear shock to operate smoothly. The Full Floater lower shock mount allows the Fuel EX 5 to react better to smaller chatter bumps and washboard surfaces, helping to keep the rider fresher over long rides. Control Freak internal cable routing manages cables and brake hosing, keeping the Fuel EX 5 looking clean in messy conditions. To help keep the frame happy, Trek's Knock Block is a clever headset insert that ensures the fork crown doesn't smack the down tube in the event of a spill. A the top of the EVO link is a set of reversible Mino Links that allow the rider to change the bike's geometry and handling with a single tool.

Single-ring drivetrains make sense in rough territory and trails. The Fuel EX 5 features a 30T RaceFace Ride crankset, helping to keep weight low and reduce mechanical complexity. A 10-speed Shimano Deore shifter and Deore Shadow+ rear derailleur handles gear change duty, making shifting lightning-quick, even under hard pedaling loads. A massive 11-42T cassette brings a huge gearing range to the table for roller-coaster singletrack. Wide tubeless-ready alloy Alex MD35 wheels are wrapped with Schwalbe's tubeless-ready 27.5x2.8" Nobbly Nic Performance tires, bringing boatloads of traction and control. The hubs are Boost 110/148 thru-axle units, adding handling precision with improved lateral stiffness. Reigning in speed is the job of a set of Shimano hydraulic disc brakes that work in all conditions, wet or dry.

A Bontrager Arvada saddle, alloy 2-bolt seatpost, alloy Rhythm Comp stem, alloy mountain handlebar and lock-on XR Trail Comp grips complete this trail conquerer.
