It's right for you if...
You're ready to go full-suspension, and you want a versatile trail bike with fast-rolling 29˝ wheels at great value. You want a ride that's sure-footed, capable and responsive, so you can stay in control wherever you're riding.
The tech you get
A lightweight Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame with fast-rolling 29˝ wheels and 130 mm of front and rear travel. Plus, Boost148/110 hub spacing for added strength and tyre clearance, a durable 1x10 Shimano Deore drivetrain and fully adjustable RockShox air suspension.
The final word
Full-suspension performance without the sticker shock. Fuel EX 5 has the same frame and suspension tech found on our higher-end alloy Fuel EX models. 130 mm of travel, Boost 148/110 hub spacing and a Shimano 1x10 drivetrain make for an ideal introduction to the world of full-suspension trail riding.

Our expert mechanic pulls your bike out of the box and builds it to 100%, excluding accessories (i.e racks and baskets). We tune the brakes and gears then test ride to ensure everything runs smoothly.
We then take off a few simple parts to fit the bike into the box. We double check to ensure all the parts are enclosed, before sealing the box and sending to you.

You use 2-3 common tools to fit a few simple parts. If you get stuck, use our help centre and bike assembly guides or give us a call and we'll talk you through the process.
