Trek's Fuel EX full-suspension trail bikes are renowned for high performance in a wide trange of conditions. By adding a 27.5" Plus-sized wheel and tire combo, the Fuel EX 8 becomes a more capable machine in technical singletrack.  

The frame of every mountain bike is the "backbone" of how it will perform on the trails. With Trek's lightweight hydroformed Alpha Platinum aluminum frame, the Fuel EX 8 for women resists torsional stress, pedaling force and impacts with ease. need a short standover height? The smallest 14" frame size has a standover height of only 28.2" A PF92 bottom bracket, tapered head tube and Straight Shot down tube all work together, making the Fuel EX 8 an incredibly rigid machine that responds to every pedal stoke, even in highly technical sections. The Fuel EX 8's Straight Shot down tube isn't vulnerable to impacts from the fork crown, thanks to an ingenious Knock Block steerer stop incorporated into the stem and headset. Trek's exclusive Active Braking Pivot -or ABP- rear suspension geometry allows the rear shock to function perfectly, even under hard braking situations. A 15mm thru-axle rear hub keeps the frame from twisting under acceleration. The one-piece EVO upper suspension link also resists twisting that would otherwise bind the rear shock as well. A Full Floater lower shock mount allows the rear shock to respond to a washboard surfaces better, while a down tube guard protects against rock strikes. The rear shock itself is an air-adjustable Fox Performance Float EVOL unit with a RE:aktiv 3-position damper developed with the help of Penske Racing Shocks. The rear suspension's 130mm of travel will feel almost bottomless, even in rock gardens and stair-step descents. Front suspension duties are handled with an air-adjustable Fox Rhythm 34 Float fork with 140mm of travel. A 15mm thru-axle front hub adds an extra dose of precision to the Fuel EX 8's handling. Control Freak internal cable routing keeps the Fuel EX 8 looking clean and sleek.

A simple drivetrain is always the best choice in technical off-road riding. SRAM's new 12-speed GX Eagle shifter and GX Eagle rear derailleur virtually eliminate the need for a front derailleur, reducing weight and overall mechanical complexity. A huge 10-50T SRAM Eagle cassette and 32T single chainring adds a massive gearing range; perfect for tackling roller-coaster trail networks. Bontrager supplies the Line Comp 40 alloy wheels and meaty 27.5x2.80" XR4 Team Issue tires, bringing boatloads of traction to the Fuel EX 8. The whole setup is tubeless-ready, and we'll set it up for you! With great traction comes the need for excellent brakes, and the bike's Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes help reign in speed in all conditions, rain or shine (or mud).

The cockpit of the Fuel EX 8 for women needed to be better than the competition, and so Bontrager added a women's Ajna saddle and Line dropper post with bar-mounted remote lever. Getting the saddle out of the way on steep tip-ins has never been easier. Bontrager also brought an alloy Rhythm Comp Knock Block stem and alloy handlebar. Lock-on style Bontrager XR Trail Elite grips complete this singletrack warrior.
