Fuel EX 5 is the gateway to full suspension trail bikes.

Trail-taming front and rear suspension, a Shimano 1x12 drivetrain, a dropper post for getting low on descents, and hydraulic disc brakes make Fuel EX 5 a high-value, high-performance mountain bike with exceptional versatility.

Why you'll love it

  1. You get a high-end ride at an exceptional value with frame features like Boost148 and ABP that give you confident handling and room to upgrade parts as your skills grow
  2. It has the capability of far more expensive trail bikes: it shreds singletrack and can even handle the occasional XC or enduro race
  3. The dropper post lets you lower your saddle on the fly so it's out of the way on descents
  4. The RockShox fork's Solo Air spring can easily be adjusted for a specific rider weight, and it's lighter than a coil spring
  5. Trek expanded the size range to ensure a better fit for all riders. And, you get the fastest wheel that fits your frame: XS frames get 27.5˝ wheels, S frames get to choose between 27.5˝ or 29˝, and sizes M to XL get 29˝ wheels

It's right for you if...

You're ready to go full suspension, and you want a versatile trail bike at a great value. You want a ride that's sure-footed, capable, and responsive so you can stay in control no matter where you're riding.

The tech you get

A lightweight aluminum frame with a Knock Block steerer stop to protect against spinning bars. A 140mm RockShox Recon Silver fork, 130mm of rear travel with an X-Fusion Pro 2 shock, a durable 12-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain, dropper post, and hydraulic disc brakes.

The final word

You get full suspension performance without the sticker shock. Fuel EX 5 has the same frame technology as Trek's higher-end alloy Fuel EX models with parts chosen to keep the price tag low and stoke level high.

Sizing & fit

This 18.5" / Medium /Large frame generally fits rider 5'8."-5'10", but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit.
