Description

Fuel EX 5 is the gateway to full suspension trail bikes. Trail-taming RockShox front and rear suspension, a Shimano 1×12 drive train, 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.

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 aluminium frame with a Straight Shot down tube for extra stiffness in the rough and a Knock Block steerer stop to protect against spinning bars. A 140 mm RockShox Recon RL fork, 130 mm of rear travel with a RockShox Deluxe Select+ shock, a durable 12-speed Shimano Deore drive train, 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 our higher-end alloy Fuel EX models with parts chosen to keep the price tag low and stoke level high.

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. We expanded our 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.

Why we won’t ship unbuilt Trek bikes

Due to warranty regulations, Trek bikes must be assembled by a qualified bike mechanic in an approved store. This is an international policy for Trek bikes. Therefore, any Trek Bicycle purchased online must be picked up from Velo Ronny’s or contact us for further options.
