Details

Fuel EXe 8 is a trail-ready aluminum electric mountain bike that quietly assists you on the climbs so you've got all the power you need on descents. Like its carbon counterpart, it looks and handles like a traditional trail bike, but with the added support of a tiny-but-mighty harmonic pin ring drive system with sleek top-tube display unit and compact remote. It comes ready to rip with upgraded parts where they matter most, like a FOX suspension package, wide Bontrager Line Comp Tubeless Ready wheels, and SRAM's 12-speed wireless GX AXS transmission.

It's right for you if...
Performance matters to you, but so does the price tag. You want all of the tech you'll find in the top-of-the-line Fuel EXe, but in a bike that's built for your budget. You want upgraded components you can trust to keep ripping, and a robust alloy frame that rallies through the rough and gives you just enough power on the ups.

The tech you get
An Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame with TQ's HPR50 harmonic pin ring drive system, a fully-encased 360Wh removable battery, and smart charging port. An integrated LED display and handlebar remote that are easy to use on the fly. 150mm FOX Rhythm 36 front suspension with Float EVOL air spring and GRIP damper, and 140mm FOX Performance Float X rear suspension. Plus, wide, Tubeless Ready Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels, SRAM's wireless 12-speed GX AXS transmission, hydraulic disc brakes, and a dropper post.

The final word
If you want all the tech of the top-tier Fuel EXe without the sticker shock, Fuel EXe 8 is for you. You get the same drive system, display, and geometry of its carbon counterpart, plus an upgraded suspension package and wireless shifting— on a more economical alloy chassis.

Why you'll love it
- You get all the tech of our top-end light e-MTB without a price tag that makes you say ouch
- Its upgraded FOX suspension package and SRAM wireless transmission gives you the performance gains you crave
- Its tiny but mighty TQ motor is tuned for the trail, keeping things quiet so you can stay in the moment, and ramps up power with you for a natural ride feel
- The integrated display, charging port, and controls are simple to use, sleek, and intuitive
- You can tweak your geometry with Mino Link, or add an adjustable angle headset to take even more control
