Fuel EX 7 shines when you’re charging down tricky descents, where the upgraded suspension package comes in handy. A lightweight aluminium frame, tubeless-ready wheels, and a reliable 1×12 SRAM NX Eagle drive train make this an amazing all-around full suspension mountain bike.
It’s right for you if…
You want one bike that’s fun to ride on every trail, and you want upgraded parts, like a smoother DebonAir spring fork and a completely tubeless set-up for less weight and more traction.
The tech you get
A light yet stiff alloy frame, a 140 mm RockShox fork with a DebonAir spring for better small-bump compliance and a FOX shock. A 1×12 SRAM NX Eagle drive train with a wide gear range. Plus, Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels with tubeless tyres and a dropper post.
The final word
Fuel EX 7 is a great all-around trail bike for a wide variety of terrain. It has upgrades where it matters most, like the suspension, drive train and tubeless-ready Bontrager 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.
