It's right for you if...

You ride more than one type of trail, so you’re searching for a versatile trail bike platform that will give you the best bones for a ride that’s quick and fun on a variety of terrain.

The tech you get

A lightweight Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame with 130 mm of travel and Mino Link adjustable geometry, a FOX Performance shock with Trek’s exclusive RE:aktiv damper and an included Bontrager Line stem and Knock Block headset that prevents damage to the frame from spinning handlebars and fork crowns. Built for a PF92 bottom bracket and a 140 mm fork.

The final word

Fuel EX AL is burly enough for big features but agile enough for fast singletrack sessions. It’s a great all-around frame set for the mountain biker who wants to explore all kinds of terrain on a single full suspension trail bike.

Features

Will my bike have a curved top tube?

Smaller frames (XS and S) have a top tube that dips down as it approaches the seat tube. This design makes for a lower standover height, which is good for shorter riders because it allows them to straddle their bike more easily. Larger frames (M and up) have a straight top tube because taller riders with longer legs typically don’t have the same issues with standover height.

Active Braking Pivot

Active Braking Pivot allows our engineers to tune how the suspension reacts to acceleration and braking forces independently. That means you get more confident control when you need it most.

RE:aktiv

RE:aktiv technology gives you firm support for efficient pedaling that instantly gives way for smooth control when the trail turns rough.

Straight Shot w/Knock Block

Trek’s Straight Shot frame design optimises the stiffness-to-weight ratio for a more responsive ride. You’ll be able to push harder and stay more planted on your line when the going gets rough.
