Product Description

Our most popular trail bike gets more capable with more travel and bigger tires.

The all-new Fuel EX 27.5 Plus brings plus-sized fun to full-suspension capability with extra tyre volume for greater traction.

For the all-new Fuel EX 27.5 Plus, we’ve re-engineered our hugely popular Chupacabra tyre to a lighter and more nimble 27.5 x 2.8? size. Paired with a 40mm rim, this setup strikes the fine balance between fat-bike traction and trail-bike agility. Novice and intermediate riders will instantly feel the increased stability and confidence-inspiring traction on any trail. Advanced riders will find themselves clearing more technical trail features than ever thanks to the added grip in extreme situations like ultra-steep blown-out climbs and rowdy off-camber roots.

To go along with all the extra fun, we added more travel to the Fuel EX family, with 130mm out back and 140mm up front. Of course, we still use our proven suspension technology, including ABP, Full Floater, and RE:aktiv for a chassis that’s ready for the plus-sized party. Boost hub spacing makes room for those meaty tyres and allows us to keep the chainstays to a playful 433mm.

The new frame features a slightly slackened geometry and is available in Alpha Platinum Aluminum and OCLV Mountain Carbon. Fuel EX 27.5 Plus also features our all-new Straight Shot downtube for increased stiffness. This is the stiffest Fuel EX frame we’ve ever made, and it won’t flinch when you charge through technical terrain. For an added measure of protection, we developed Knock Block steerer stop, which keeps the fork crown or handlebar controls from hitting the frame. The new Fuel EX Plus frames come with our Control Freak internal routing system for a versatile, easy to use setup, while Mino Link allows riders to further fine-tune their geometry.

With three models to choose from, there’s a Fuel EX Plus for every trail rider who wants to up their game.
