Description of Trek FUEL EX 8 29 Mountainbike - 2017 - matte trek black
State of the Art Twentyniner Trail Bike!
The world's best-loved mountain bike keeps getting better. Fuel EX continues to set the bar for full suspension trail bike versatility, bringing race-day tech to all-day adventure.
Want a rugged, capable long-travel trail bike, and a nimble XC bike? Get both with Fuel EX. Whether it's your millionth mile on the trail or your first, you'll love this bike.
The Alpha Platinium Aluminium frame comes with a FOX F34 Rhythm fork, FOX Performance Float RE:aktiv EVOL shock, Shimano XT 2x11-speed drivetrain, Bontrager Duster Elite Boost wheels, Shimano Deore disc brakes, KS eThirty dropper post and grippy Bontrager XR3 Expert tires.
Alpha Platinum Aluminium - Trek's premium, aluminum alloy is continuously cold extruded and butted for weight reduction and superior strength. Frames built with Alpha Platinum feature extensive hydroforming to create the most complex industrial designs for the lightest weight, and are finished using Trek's smooth-weld finishing process.
Full Floater - Most suspension systems attach the bottom of the shock to a fixed frame mount. That fixed mount can contribute to a harsh ride. Trek solved that with Full Floater, attaching the shock to two moving linkage points so it can better respond to bumps across a wide variety of terrain. It feels like more travel, but it's not. It's smarter travel.
RE:aktiv - No one else offers what Trek's RE:aktiv regressive damper valve delivers: lots of low-speed compression damping (efficient), fluid high-speed compression damping (supple), and an instant, seamless transition between the two. Your bike rides like an XC bike when you want it to, like a DH bike when you need it to, and you'll never feel the switch.
Mino Link Geo Adjust - Fine tune head tube angle by 1/2° and BB height by up to 10 mm with the simple turn of a nut. Just flip the link to choose between slack or slacker geometry, without negatively affecting suspension performance. A Trek exclusive.
Boost 148/110 - Wider dropouts (110 mm front, 148mm rear) give you the stiffness of a 27.5" wheel with all the benefits of a 29" wheel, and Boost148 in the rear lets you run wider tires and a larger chainring without affecting q-factor and pedaling efficiency.
Active Braking Pivot - Other full suspension systems firm up under braking, reducing your control when you need it most. Trek's patented Active Braking Pivot solves that by keeping your suspension active whether you're on the brakes or off. When your suspension stays active under braking, you stay in control. You can brake later in a turn, maintain better rear wheel traction in stutter bumps, go faster, and just have more fun.
EVO Link - The exclusive EVO Link system connects the main frame to the rear triangle with a one-piece rocker link, creating a stiffer frame for greater control with minimal weight. It's a stronger, lighter rocker.
Micro Truss - MicroTruss housing guides are built directly into the frame, for the lightest, cleanest external cable routing.
Internal derailleur routing - Sleek ports at the head tube and near the seat tube let you route your derailleur cables through the frame to keep your bike running smooth and clean.
E2 Tapered Head Tube - E2 tapers from a 1.5" lower to a 1-1/8" upper to provide mare material where it matters most, for a stronger, lighter frame with point-and-shoot control.
ISCG Mount - International Standard Chain Guide mounts offer easy chain guide installation and adjustment.
Down Tube Guard - Replaceable external shield protects the down tube from trail debris.
