Trek Fuel EX 8 XT 27.5" Mountain Bike 2020
An Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame on the Fuel EX 8 XT 27.5" Mountain Bike offers 130mm of travel from a FOX Performance FLOAT EVOL rear shock and features Trek’s Mino Link rocker chip that can be switched to give an alternative geometry to better suit rider or trail. The Knock Block design prevents the fork crown from hitting the frame in the event of an accident and cables are routed internally for a tidy aesthetic. The front shock is the FOX Rhythm 34 FLOAT EVOL air spring fork with 140mm of travel, with a GRIP damper that increases traction and small bump sensitivity.
27.5” Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels enable the smaller frame sizes to remain consistent with the larger frames in terms of handling and ride, with Bontrager also supplying the XR4 Team Issue tyres and Line Dropper seatpost. The groupset makes good use of Shimano’s lauded XT range, which offers virtually all the performance of XTR at a more palatable price point, making it ideal for use on a hard-charging all-mountain machine such as this.
