Trek has been in the full-suspension game for decades! This is their most affordable version of their best trail bike yet!

The Fuel EX 5 is a mighty leap up from the competition. Light weight, capable suspension and brilliant handling makes every mile of trail more fun! The Fuel EX chassis starts with a lightweight Alpha Platinum aluminum frame, ensuring incredible torsional strength for flex-free handling and power transfer. The tapered head tube and press-fit PF92 bottom bracket are connected by a rigid Straight Shot downtube, reducing weight and enhancing frame strength even further. Normally, this design might pose a challenge if you took an "unplanned inspection of the bushes" and damaged the down tube with a spinning fork crown. But the Fuel EX uses a clever Knock Block steerer stop, keeping the fork from denting the frame's down tube during a tumble. Trek's Control Freak internal cable routing keeps derailleur and hydraulic hosing from getting tangled internally. A down tube guard prevents paint chips from front tire "roost". Trek's exclusive G2 geometry helps the Fuel EX 5 handle every turn and bend even better.

The Fuel EX 5 features Trek's exclusive Active Braking Pivot (or ABP) rear suspension, adding World Cup technology to every ride. ABP ensures that, no matter how hard you pedal and how hard you mash on the brakes, the rear suspension won't tighten. The suspension is free to do the job of reacting to the terrain and keeping you under control. The upper one-piece EVO Link eliminates lateral binding in the rear shock, letting it soak up impacts freely. The EVO Link also sports a small reverseable Mino Link at the top of the seat stays. That simple addition allows the rider to change the geometry of the Fuel EX 5 with one tool. An air-adjustable RockShox Deluxe RL shock brings 130mm of travel to the rear of the Fuel EX 5, giving the rider outstanding control on rough technical sections. Up front, an air-adjustable RockShox Recon RL suspension fork boasts 130mm of travel, helping to keep the bike where you point it.

The Fuel EX 5 Plus is equipped with a single-ring drivetrain, reducing mechanical complexity and weight. A 10-speed Shimano Deore shifter controls a Shadow+ Deore rear derailleur, giving a precise feel to every gear change. A Race Face Ride alloy crankset features a 30T direct mount chainring for power delivery duties. Out back, an 11-42T cassette offers a massive gearing range for tackling challenging singletrack.

The rolling stock on the Fuel EX 5 are alloy Bontrager Connection wheels, bringing easy acceleration as well as durability to the Fuel EX 5. Boost 110/148 hubs add an extra element of lateral strength for better handling in the twisties. 32-spoke lacing improves durability further when hamming downhill on rocky terrain. 29x2.3" Bontrager XR3 tires are excellent trail-tamers with aggressive grip. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes help to reign in speed, even in messy or dirty conditions.

A Bontrager Arvada saddle, alloy 2-bolt seatpost, alloy Rhythm Comp stem and alloy handlebar complete this singletrack challenger.
