Fuel EX 5 is the gateway to full suspension trail bikes. Trail-taming RockShox front and rear suspension, a Shimano 1x12 drivetrain, a dropper post for getting low on descents, and hydraulic disc brakes make Fuel EX 5 a high-value, high-performance mountain bike with exceptional versatility.
It's right for you if...
You're ready to go full suspension, and you want a versatile trail bike at a great value. You want a ride that's sure-footed, capable, and responsive so you can stay in control no matter where you're riding.
The tech you get
A lightweight aluminum frame with a Straight Shot down tube for extra stiffness in the rough, and a Knock Block steerer stop to protect against spinning bars. A 140mm RockShox Recon RL fork, 130mm of rear travel with a RockShox Deluxe Select+ shock, a durable 12-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain, dropper post, and hydraulic disc brakes.
The final word
You get full suspension performance without the sticker shock. Fuel EX 5 has the same frame technology as our higher-end alloy Fuel EX models with parts chosen to keep the price tag low and stoke level high.
