There is something special about a bike that can do nearly anything, and Trek has honed their new Fuel EX into a top contender in the ‘quiver-killer’ category. The recipe starts with 140/150mm travel, modern geometry and 29” wheels, but Trek decided to offer a ton of adjustability too; The frame geometry, steering angle and shock rate can all be tuned on the new Fuel EX.

The fully redesigned Fuel EX features Trek’s ABP suspension linkage, now offering 140mm rear travel and matched to 150mm forks. Wheel size and fork travel does vary on some models; The XS frames run 27.5” wheels and a 140mm fork, and Small frames offer either 27.5” wheels (with a 140mm fork) or 29” wheels (with a 150mm fork). All larger sizes run 29” wheels front and back, but they can be converted to MX setups. However, Trek recommends a 160mm fork for mixed-wheel riders.
