Big wheels, playful geometry, legendary pedigree: Trek's Fuel EX. The Fuel EX 7 27.5 uses an Alpha aluminum frame and all the secrets that put Trek at the head of the pack. Things like their Full Floater and ABP rear suspension technologies make for a ride that obliterates the line between a hard-charging trail bike and nimble XC bike. The suspension is responsive, plush, and handles hits way above its 120mm for that bottomless feeling without compromising a thing. Channeling your power is a 20-speed Shimano drivetrain spinning tubeless-ready, rear thru-axle Bontrager hoops that are hauled down by Shimano Deore discs. On top of all that, Bonty components feel like they're custom made for riding trails.

Trek’s premium lightweight aluminum is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points for ultimate weight reduction and superior strength. Frames built with Trek’s Alpha Platinum aluminum are hydroformed to create the most sophisticated shapes for the lightest weight, and are finished using their smooth-weld process.

Trek's Full Floater shock mount boasts two suspended points that allow the shock to "float" through its range of action for seemingly bottomless travel and excellent tracking over every type of terrain.
Trek's EVO rocker link is a one-piece, magnesium linkage that drastically increases rear-end stiffness and decreases total frame weight, too.
Trek's E2 head tube is 1.5-inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8-inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems and not adding much weight.
