Fuel EX 7 shines when you're charging down tricky descents, where the dropper post, upgraded 140mm RockShox 35 Gold fork and 130mm of rear travel come in handy. A lightweight aluminium frame, Tubeless Ready wheels and a reliable 1x12 SRAM NX Eagle drive train make this an amazing all-around full suspension mountain bike.
- An incredible full suspension bike that excels on every trail
- Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame with Straight Shot, Knock Block, Mino Link and ABP
- RockShox 35 Gold fork with plush DebonAir spring, 140mm travel
- Fox Performance Float EVOL rear shock, 130mm travel
- 1x12 SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain with wide range 11-50 cassette
- Bontrager Line Comp 30 TLR wheels provide more tyre support for better traction and control
- Bontrager XR4 Team Issue TLR tyres with Inner Strength sidewalls
- Dropper post lets you lower your saddle on the fly so it's out of the way on descents
- Doubly stiff: the wider Boost148 rear and Boost110 front hub spacing creates stronger, less flexy wheels and allows for wider tyres, shorter chainstays and more chainring options
Upgrades from Fuel EX 5:
- RockShox 35 Gold fork
- Fox Performance Float shock
- Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels
- SRAM NX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain
- Shimano MT400 brakes
Better frames for a better ride:
We know why you ride. It's not to ponder how light your frame is, or contemplate the stiffness of your rocker link. You just want the performance those things give you. It's why Trek pack their frames with performance-enhancing technology, and summarise it all with simple words like EVO and Full Floater. Simple words, complex solutions, a better ride.
Other suspension systems firm up under braking. Active Braking Pivot (ABP) allows your suspension to remain active, whether you're pedalling, coasting or braking.
This means your bike performs as it was intended, all the time.
Wider dropouts at the front and rear give greater stiffness. Boost148 at the back lets you run wider tyres and a larger chain ring without affecting q-factor and pedalling efficiency.
Straight Shot with Knock Block:
Straight Shot is a straight downtube that makes the frame stiffer so your Fuel EX won't flinch on rough descents. Knock Block is the defence required for this radical frame design, to prevent accidental damage if the forks spin right round.
Mino Link Adjustable Geometry:
Fine-tune the head tube angle by 1/2 degree and bottom brackt 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 technology.
Alpha Platinum Aluminium:
Trek's best high-performance lightweight aluminium alloy is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points for ultimate weight reduction and superior strength. Frames built with Alpha Platinum feature a high degree of hydroforming to create the most complex industrial designs for the lightest weight, and are finished using Trek's smooth-weld finishing process.
Sometimes you need a little extra protection, so Fuel EX 7 gets a light, tough external shield. The Armour polymer shield adds reassurance to riders who know their downtube is bound to take some abuse.
Press-fit bottom bracket:
Press-fit BB is a bottom bracket shell that allows the bearings to press into the frame rather than thread in like standard bottom brackets. This provides a wider stance for the frame's tubing juncture, resulting in a stronger frame. This wider stance also simulates benefits of an OCLV Carbon-only technology, BB95.
Dropper post and internal cable routing:
Fuel EX 7 is equipped with a dropper post which is great for while-you-ride seat-height adjustments. The remote cable is routed directly through the frame for the sleekest setup you've seen.
Control Freak Cable Management:
The lightest, quietest, most versatile cable management system allows any combination of shift, brake, lock-out and dropper post lines to be routed through the frame for clean looks and the ultimate custom set-up.
International Standard Chain Guide mounts offer easy chain guide installation and adjustment.
