With the big-wheel mile crushing of an XC bike and the confidence of an aggressive trail bike, Trek's Fuel EX 8 29 tackles and tames whatever you have in mind. This 29er boasts Trek's Alpha aluminum frame with G2 geometry for 120mm of front and rear travel, controlled by Fox's CTD technology and enhanced with Trek's DRCV tech out back. Stiffness means precise handling, so you're equipped with Trek's E2 head tube and a 142x12 rear through axle, plus Trek's ABP and Full Floater suspension to keep your rear suspension active and controlled even when you're braking. This outstanding frame is built up with a tubeless-ready Bontrager wheelset, sure-stopping Shimano SLX discs and a SRAM/Shimano XT drivetrain for crisp, quick shifts every time. You also get a host of quality components from Bontrager. Welcome to the new platinum standard.
