Trek announced an all-new Fuel EX for 2020, aimed as their high-performance trail mountain bike. With longer travel than the XC-focused Top Fuel, it has larger tire clearance and slacker geometry to smooth out trails that aren’t suited for short travel. Trek also opted for larger fork uppers on top models, along with beefy Shimano brakes at all prices
Starting with the basics, the frame has gotten longer and slacker, aiming for improved prowess on rough trails and bigger hits. The fork travel has increased to 140mm, with a beefier fixed lower shock mount out back
Trek uses their handy internal storage system, which includes a side-swipe bottle cage and Bontrager tool roll (though you must purchase the items to fill the roll – i.e. CO2, etc).
