The 2011 Trek Fuel EX is one of Trek’s most versatile offerings when it comes to full suspension bikes. You can take 2011 Fuel EX across various terrains, with this light and precise machine.
Using the ABP technology, also known as Active Braking Pivot, the 2011 Trek Fuel EX aligns the rear suspension directly with the rear wheel, allowing the shock to still move if your
breaking braking, pedaling or descending. Depending on the Fuel EX model, the frame is made of OCLV carbon or Alpha Red aluminum.
Using a tapered steerer fork, which is crucial for the E2 system. E2 uses a 1-1/8″ headset to a tapered headtube, fork, and headset. With a 1.5″ lower taper to a 1-1/8″ upper headset, this gives you more material where it matters. Overall, giving you a light, stronger frame. This is only on Fuel EX 7 and above models.
A fine tune shock was placed on the 2011 Trek Fuel EX, who worked with none other than Fox Racing. The tuning adds for a more controlled ride.
Lastly, a press fit bottom bracket shell was added, this makes the bearings pressed into the frame, rather than threaded in like most bikes. This gives the rider a wider stance for the tubing juncture on the frame, and another added addition to strength. Check out more pictures below.
