Fuel EX 7 is a do-anything trail machine evolved to eat up singletrack. Upgraded 150mm front and 140mm rear suspension smooth out rough and technical descents, while a lightweight aluminum 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.
It's right for you if...
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.
The tech you get
A lightweight alloy full-suspension frame with 150mm 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 tires and a dropper post. New adjustable geometry that lets you take control of your setup.
The final word
For the all-mountain rider, 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.
