The Fuel EX 7 is a do-anything trail machine evolved to eat up singletrack. Upgraded 150 mm front and 140 mm rear suspension smooth out rough and technical descents, while a lightweight aluminium frame keeps things lively on the climbs. New in-frame storage and adjustable geometry give you all the perks that come with the carbon model, without the price tag. Tubeless wheels, and reliable Shimano SLX 1x12 drivetrain round-out this build for ultimate trail fun.
You're looking for a ride-anything full-suspension with stepped-up components, like a supple RockShox Gold RL fork that gobbles up rock gardens for fun and flowy descents.
A lightweight alloy full-suspension frame with 150 mm RockShox Gold RL fork with DebonAir spring for small bump compliance and a FOX Performance rear shock. Plus, a 1x12 Shimano SLX drivetrain and wide Bontrager wheels with tubeless tyres and a dropper post. New adjustable geometry that lets you take control of your set-up.
For the all-mountain rider, the Fuel EX 7 takes the cake. Its capable geometry is ready to rally the mountain, and upgraded suspension and drivetrain keep you riding all day.
- You get all-mountain power with upgraded components that are ready to progress with you on the trail
- We expanded our size range to ensure a better fit for all riders, and use the best-fitting wheels for each frame size: XS frames get 27.5? wheels, S frames get to choose between 27.5? or 29?, and sizes M and up get 29? wheels
- The dropper post gets your saddle out of the way when you're ripping corners and smashing descents.
- With the adjustable angle headset (angled cups sold separately) and Mino Link, you can choose from six different geometry configurations
- Guided internal routing, universal derailleur hanger, improved hardware and a threaded BB make maintenance a breeze
Internal frame storage makes it easy to ditch the pack and still carry your ride essentials.
Active Braking Pivot
Active Braking Pivot allows our engineers to tune how the suspension reacts to acceleration and braking forces independently. That means you get more confident control when you need it most.
Slack or steep, the choice is yours
Install angle-adjust headset cups (sold separately) to tweak the 64.5-degree head tube angle a degree steeper or slacker to your liking ? all without impacting your bottom bracket height.
Adjust the sus for full send
Adjust the leverage rate with just a flip of a chip. Ride it in the Less progressive setting for a plusher feel perfect for rugged trails with square-edge bumps. Flip it to More progressive when you're hitting big features and don?t want to bottom-out, or when you want to run a coil shock.
Size-specific chainstays provide balanced handling to keep the ride nimble for smaller riders and improve front wheel traction on climbs for taller riders.
Business at the front, party at the back
Craving the nimble ride of 27.5? wheels but don?t want to sacrifice the speed of a 29er? No need to choose. The Fuel EX is mullet-ready, just throw Mino Link into high, toss on a 160 mm fork and get ready to party.
