The Fuel EX 8 is a dialled trail bike for riders who chase down rowdy descents and want a bike that's happy to pedal back to the top and do it again. It has a stout alloy frame and an upgraded Shimano XT drivetrain for smooth precise shifting. The 150 mm Fox Rhythm fork makes easy work of rocks and roots while the Fox Float X shock keeps you in control. New in-frame storage and adjustable geometry give you all the perks that come with the carbon model, but without the lofty price tag.
You want a full-suspension trail bike that prioritises suspension and shifting performance over a more expensive carbon frame.
A light and stiff alloy frame with 150 mm FOX Rhythm fork with Float EVOL air spring and GRIP damper for small bump compliance, plus a FOX Performance Float X rear shock. A Shimano XT 12-speed drivetrain for snappy shifting, and tubeless-ready Bontrager wheels. Plus, new adjustable geometry that lets you take control of your set-up.
For the rider who doesn't want to be limited on the trail, the Fuel EX 8 is ready to handle everything. Its progressive trail geometry is built to keep you charging, and upgraded components are they cherry on top.
- This bike is built to take on the singletrack, with modern geometry that's evolved to handle the rough and rowdy
- You'll get upgraded components where it matters most, with 12-speed XT shifting and a rock-gobbling FOX Rhythm 36 fork
- With the adjustable angle headset (angled cups sold separately) and Mino Link, you can choose from six different geometry configurations
- We expanded our size range to ensure a better fit for all riders, and use the best-fitting wheels for each frame size: XS frames get 27.5? wheels, S frames get to choose between 27.5? or 29?, and sizes M and up get 29? wheels
- Guided internal routing, universal derailleur hanger, improved hardware and a threaded BB make maintenance a breeze
Internal frame storage makes it easy to ditch the pack and still carry your ride essentials.
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.
Slack or steep, the choice is yours
Install angle-adjust headset cups (sold separately) to tweak the 64.5-degree head tube angle a degree steeper or slacker to your liking ? all without impacting your bottom bracket height.
Adjust the sus for full send
Adjust the leverage rate with just a flip of a chip. Ride it in the Less progressive setting for a plusher feel perfect for rugged trails with square-edge bumps. Flip it to More progressive when you're hitting big features and don?t want to bottom-out, or when you want to run a coil shock.
Size-specific chainstays provide balanced handling to keep the ride nimble for smaller riders and improve front wheel traction on climbs for taller riders.
Business at the front, party at the back
Craving the nimble ride of 27.5? wheels but don?t want to sacrifice the speed of a 29er? No need to choose. The Fuel EX is mullet-ready, just throw Mino Link into high, toss on a 160 mm fork and get ready to party.
