Fuel EX AL is an aluminum full suspension mountain bike frameset that makes the perfect start for a capable trail bike build. Trail-tough alloy tubes, the latest in Trek trail bike frame tech, and a 130mm of travel with a RE:aktiv shock make it a great choice for riders who want a bike that can handle everything from serious all-mountain riding to endurance races.
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 Aluminum frame with 130mm 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 140mm 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 frameset for the mountain biker who wants to explore all kinds of terrain on a single full suspension trail bike.
