 The Fuel EX 8 27.5 Plus is Trek's introductory full-suspension plus-size mountain bike. The term "introductory" is used very loosely here...

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 trail-tamer. But the fun just isn't in the tires, it can be found in many attributes in the Fuel EX 8 27.5 Plus. The frame of every mountain bike is the core of how it will perform on the trails. With Trek's lightweight hydroformed Alpha Platinum aluminum frame, the Fuel EX 8 27.5 Plus resists torsional stress, pedaling force and impacts with ease. A PF92 bottom bracket, tapered E2 head tube and Straight Shot down tube all conspire to make the Fuel EX 8 27.5 Plus an astonishing performance machine with every pedal stoke, even in highly technical sections. The Fuel EX 8's down tube isn't vulnerable to impacts from the fork crown, thanks to an ingenious Knock Block steerer stop at the top of the 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, as well as allowing the rear shock to function smoothly. 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 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 root "fun houses". Front suspension duties are taken up by 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.

SRAM does single-ring drivetrains very well, and Trek added an 11-speed SRAM GX rear shifter, SRAM GX rear derailleur, 32T SRAM GX 1000 crankset and SRAM 11-speed 10-42T cassette to the Fuel EX 8. With shifting precision, durability, simplicity and light weight, the Fuel EX 8 27.5 Plus is ready for whatever the trail throws at you. Meaty 27.5x2.80" Bontrager Chupacabra tires are tubeless-ready, and wrap a set of SunRingle Duroc alloy 28-spoke wheels. If you need traction by the truckload, look no further! Boost 110/148 Bontrager hubs provide additional torsional strength for better handling in technical terrain. Helping to keep that speed in check with confidence is the job of a set of Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes. A KS eThirty dropper post with remote lever, Bontrager Evoke 2 saddle, alloy Line stem and 35mm alloy Line handlebar complete this adventure-ready bike.
