The Fuel EX 8 GX AXS is an evolved trail bike, dialled for riders who chase down rowdy descents and want a bike that's happy to pedal back to the top and do it again. The lightweight alloy frame pairs with a upgraded electronic wireless 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle transmission, while a 150 mm FOX Rhythm fork cushions the blow from rocks and roots. In-frame storage and adjustable geometry give you all the perks that the come with the carbon model, but without the lofty price tag.
You want a full-suspension trail bike that floats over rough and technical terrain and packs in plusses, like a root-slaying FOX Rhythm fork and tubeless hoops.
A light and stiff alloy frame with 150 mm FOX Rhythm fork with Float EVOL air spring and GRIP damper for small bump compliance, plus a FOX Performance Float X rear shock. SRAM's latest wireless GX Eagle AXS 12-speed transmission for snappy shifting and Tubeless-Ready Bontrager wheels. Plus, adjustable geometry that lets you take control of your set-up.
For the rider who doesn't want to be limited on the trail, the Fuel EX 8 is ready to handle everything. Its progressive trail geometry is built to keep you charging, and upgraded components are the cherry on top.
- The Fuel EX Gen 6 gives you 140/150 mm of travel and slack, adjustable geometry for an extra capable ride, plus, in-frame storage on all models ? even alloy
- You'll get upgraded components where it matters most, with SRAM's latest GX Eagle AXS wireless electronic transmission for the smoothest shifting under load
- With the adjustable angle headset (angled cups sold separately) and Mino Link, you can choose from six different geometry configurations
- The dropper post lets you lower your saddle on the fly so it's out of the way on descents
- 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
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.
