Internal Storage Compartment

The internal storage provides you with a sleek space to put all your tools and gear in.

Updated Geometry

The updated geometry is longer and slacker making it more stable and faster on the descents.

All Rounder

The Fuel EX can hit steep descents and long climbs so it's perfect for the rider who wants to do it all.

Updated Suspension Design

The rear suspension has now moved to fixed lower shock mount which means its stronger and more efficient.


Fuel EX 9.7 is a full suspension carbon trail bike with performance tech where it makes the biggest difference. It pairs a lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, quality FOX suspension, and powerful 4-piston brakes to make a fast, fun mountain bike that can carve around corners, weave through tricky descents and charge through rock gardens with ease.

It's right for you if...

You want a single carbon trail bike that can take on every adventure, from singletrack to the gnarliest descents and multi-stage endurance events. You prioritise a lightweight frame and performance suspension over the highest-end drive train available.

The tech you get

A lightweight and stiff full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with Carbon Armour, a 140mm FOX Rhythm 34 fork, 130mm of rear travel with a FOX Float Performance rear shock with Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv damper, a wide-range 1x12 SRAM NX/GX Eagle drive train, a Bontrager Line dropper post, Tubeless Ready Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels and powerful Shimano 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes. An internal storage compartment and Control Freak cable routing add to the bike's capability and sleek look.

The final word

Fuel EX full suspension performance on a lightweight and trail-tough carbon frame makes for a fun and fast ride. This rugged, capable bike sails down descents and helps you hang tough during fatiguing marathon rides.
