Any Trail. Anytime
Fuel EX 5 is the gateway to full suspension trail bikes. Trail-taming front and rear suspension, a Shimano 1x12 drivetrain, 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.
Why you'll love it
It has the capability of far more expensive trail bikes: it shreds singletrack and can even handle the occasional XC or enduro race
The dropper post lets you lower your saddle on the fly so it's out of the way on descents
The RockShox fork's Solo Air spring can easily be adjusted for a specific rider weight, and it's lighter than a coil spring

Fine tune head tube angle by 1/2° and BB height by up to 10mm 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.
Alpha Platinum Aluminium
Trek's premium lightweight aluminum is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points, and hydroformed into sophisticated tube shapes for maximum strength and minimum weight.
Wider dropouts (110mm 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.
