Notice

Trek Corporation Bikes (Trek and Gary Fisher) must be collected from your nearest Alpine Bikes store. Please select your local branch of Alpine Bikes at the checkout screen - there will be no option for home delivery. The bike will be sent to the store, built and checked over before a member of staff contacts you. The sales advisor will organize a pick up date and time to ensure the minimum of fuss. If you are purchasing any accessories with the bike, they will be sent to the store to be collected with the bike. There will be no postage charge for bikes collected from store.

Product overview

This is the new 29inch wheeled version of Trek’s award winning Fuel EX trail bike. Built to take on all kinds of riding the Fuel EX has 120mm of travel front and rear, well balanced handling and the ability to go and ride near enough all types of terrain. Where the Fuel EX really shines in our opinion is on longer rides. The fairly neutral handling makes the bike easy to ride no matter what the terrain or your riding ability. The bike climbs with the best thanks to the efficient suspension design and the extra grip from the 29er tires. When heading back downhill, the Fox DRCV shock (which was co-developed by Trek and Fox for this bike) really allows the bike to make the most of it’s 120mm rear wheel travel. In-fact it actually feels like you have more suspension travel than you actually do! The EX 8 is towards the top of the alloy framed Fuel EX range (Trek do 3 carbon frame models too) and is equipped with a solid and reliable mix of parts. The drivetrain is an all Shimano affair with most of the components coming from their SLX range. Brakes are a matching pair of Shimano SLX hydraulic disc’s which are by far the best brake system on the market for the price. Wheels and finishing kit all come from Trek’s own components division, Bontrager. While the Bontrager name might not have the same kudos as other brands, it is well made kit and it’s designed to mesh perfectly with the Trek frames, giving you a complete package that is guaranteed to function well together.
