Details

Trek's Top Fuel 8 is an XC rocket. Its aluminum frame is light, efficient and features the renowned G2 geometry. That partners with a 100mm Fox Float fork and shock. Powering climbs, controlling descents and dismantling the competition, the Top Fuel is dialed. Riding hard or just cruising around, the handling is perfect for full-on trail riding: confident, capable and lively. Combine that with the benefits of 29-inch wheels and you get a super-quick handling, roll-over-anything machine. It's adorned with Bontrager tubeless-ready wheels, a precision-shifting 2x10 Shimano drivetrain, ultra-powerful Shimano Deore discs and a light Bonty parts package.

Trek's G2 Geometry (version 2 of Gary Fisher's Genesis Geometry) delivers the ultimate ride for every trail. Genesis earned rave reviews for awesome handling on climbs and descents thanks to a long top tube paired with a short stem that moves the front wheel forward for top-notch confidence and control, while short chainstays add phenomenal traction. G2 Geometry takes these handling traits to the next level by boosting control on tight singletrack and technical climbs, too. This is accomplished by increasing the amount of fork offset (reducing trail), which makes G2 bikes steer more quickly, and by shortening the reach, which puts more weight on the front wheel for even better control and confidence. The two animations above showcase how G2 Geometry provides the perfect ride.
Trek's E2 head tube is 1 1/2 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.

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.


For every full-suspension mountain bike that they sell, Trek donates $10 to the IMBA to help build new trails. Join the IMBA today!
