Spotted: New Fuel Ex 27.5 Prototype Tested by Keith Bontrager
It’s officially official that Trek is working on a new 27.5 Fuel EX. The rumors have been circulating on the internet for quite sometime, but this image posted by Keith Bontrager in December ads some credibility, and points to the new bike being released sometime later this year.
The Enduro/All Mountain oriented Slash 27.5″ model sits at 160mm of travel, and the more trail oriented Remedy 27.5″ is now sporting 140mm, so the new Fuel will likely sit at either 120-130mm of travel.
Everything is conjecture at this point, but we’ll keep you updated with more as we get it.
