Details

Fuel EX 8 Plus is a versatile full suspension trail bike with girthy plus-sized tires for unrelenting traction. It's the perfect balance of value and performance, with a trail-tough Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame, 140mm front and 130mm rear suspension, and a wide range SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain.

It's right for you if...

You appreciate a little extra confidence on the trail. You value traction and stability, and want a stable rig that rips it up and keeps the rubber side down.

The tech you get

A lightweight alloy frame, a stout 140mm FOX fork, and 130mm of rear travel with a Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv rear shock. Plus, a Bontrager Line dropper post, Tubeless Ready Bontrager Line Comp 40 wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive hub, grippy Bontrager 27.5x2.8" mid-fat tires, and a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain for incredible gear range.

The final word

Amazing traction and confidence on the trail. A lightweight alloy frame, Bontrager Line Comp 40 wheels with grippy mid-fat tires, a high-quality dropper post, and a plush suspension setup come together for a trail bike that boosts your confidence and your abilities.

Why you'll love it

1 - Unrelenting confidence: this bike lets you ride sections you never thought you'd be able to clean
2 - Mid-fat tires give you the traction to scamper up technical climbs and charge through rock gardens
3 - The SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain provides all the range you'll ever need in the simplicity of a 1x setup
