Pre-Order

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

Your Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up; ready for collection via Click & Collect or dispatch to you — it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

Pre-Launch

With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery & Collection Dates provided on product pages.

We estimate this will be ready for dispatch to you or collection via Click & Collect on the Undetermined

Trek Fuel EX 8 XT 29er Mountain Bike 2018 Black Information

Season : 2018

Brand : Trek

Code : 549360-TREK18

The Trek Fuel EX 8 29er Mountain Bike 2018 returns with a major capability boost, with a complete redesign that incorporates more travel, a more aggressive geometry, and the ability to fit both 29" and 27.5+ wheels, making it the perfect go-to trail bike.

Alpha Platinum aluminium is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points, and hydroformed into sophisticated tube shapes for maximum streangth and minimum weight. The Straight Shot downtube design creates a straight connection to the steerer tube, leading to a lighter and stiffer frame with minimal material used. Complete with Knock Block technology, which is a keyed stem system that prevents the fork crown from damaging the frame.

Boost148/110 hub spacing creates stronger wheels, with shorter stays and more tyre clearance, allowing the Trek Fuel EX 2017 to run with fast, momentum-preserving 29" wheels or the traction and stability of 27.5+ wheels. Additional features such as Control Freak Internal Cable Management, Mino Link Adjustable geometry & the Active Braking Pivot all help create a more refined ride that feels exactly how you want it to from the top of the mountain to the bottom.

The Fuel EX delivers a rugged, capable long-travel ride with the sprightly manners of an XC bike, blending the best of both worlds into one uncompromising package.

Trek Fuel EX 8 29er 2018 Features

  • New 130mm frame is more capable and 29" or 27.5+ compatible
  • Boost148/110: stronger wheels, more tyre clearance, shorter stays
  • Exclusive suspension tech with ABP and Full Floater
  • Straight Shot stiffness, Knock Block frame defence
