The 2022 Trek Fuel EX 7 Full Suspension Mountain Bike is a solid and reliable trail bike that's ready for anything you are with good spec components and attention to detail. The 2021 model has a 140 mm RockShox fork with a DebonAir spring for better small-bump compliance and a FOX shock. This is an upgrade on last years Fuel EX 7 making the 2021 version better for those tricky descents.
The 2022 Fuel EX7 has the quality components you want for a great ride such as a light yet stiff alloy frame. A 1x12 SRAM NX Eagle drive train with a wide gear range. Bontrager Wide Line Comp 30 wheels with tubeless tyres provide better traction and control. A dropper post lets you lower your saddle, so it's out of the way on descents. An expanded size range ensures a better fit for all riders. And, you get the fastest wheel that fits your frame: XS frames get 27.5 wheels, S frames get to choose between 27.5 or 29 and sizes M to XL get 29 wheels.
Fuel EX 7 is a great all-around quality trail bike for a wide variety of terrain. It has upgrades where it matters most, like the suspension, drive train and tubeless-ready Bontrager wheels meaning you won't outgrow the bike as your skills progress.
This bike is perfect for
You want a bike that's fun to ride on any trail with quality parts, like a smoother DebonAir spring fork and a tubeless-ready set-up for less weight and more traction.
Mountain biking is an incredibly diverse sport. Mountain bikes now come in three main flavours. They are XC, Trail and Enduro.
XC – short for cross country, are quick race bikes. They will normally have 29” wheels and come with 100mm of suspension. If you are mainly going to be riding bridleways and natural trails in the South East of England, where our shops are, an XC bike will be the quickest and most efficient option.
Trail – these bikes are designed to be pedalled up and down hill and for use on bridleways and natural trails, but also at dedicated trail centres. They normally come with 130mm or 140mm of suspension travel and can have either 27.5” or 29” wheels, but 29” is quickly becoming the norm. Trail bikes are good all-rounders. They won’t be as fast as an XC bike on the flat but they can handle a lot more challenging terrain, and a few jumps. If you plan on taking your bike to trail centres in Wales, or to the Alps, then a trail bike may be your best option.
Enduro – enduro racing is a thing in and of itself but many people buy enduro bikes for ‘aggressive’ trail riding and uplift days at places like Bike Park Wales. This generally means challenging downhill trails with some big jumps. With around 160mm of suspension travel enduro bikes can take some big hits. They are designed to be efficient enough to pedal up hills but really come into their own when pointed downhill. You get enduro bikes in either 27.5” or 29” wheel sizes as well as mullet setups of 29 at the front and 27.5 at the back.
Nearly all the mountain bikes we sell are now unisex. All of the big brands have gradually stopped doing dedicated men’s and women’s bikes over the last few years. Instead they are focussed on producing bikes in a bigger range of sizes. So, for instance, the Trek Marlin 5 is a unisex bike that now comes in sizes from XXS to XXL large. This means it will fit riders from 4’ 5” to 6’ 5” and everything in between.

Trek made their first bikes in 1976 in a barn in Wisconsin. Now they’re one of the biggest bike brands in the world. Trek bikes cover everything from professional-level road and mountain bike race bikes to commuters, hybrids and kids bikes. There is a strong heritage of racing at Trek and many Trek bikes have a strong race influence. They take a very scientific approach to researching bike and human performance and then make the fastest and most efficient bikes they can.
It doesn’t stop their attention and passion for cycling flows through everything they do. Since the 1990s, Trek has supported Places for Bikes. Places for Bikes is an advocacy organisation in the USA that gets more people on bikes more often! Places for Bikes ethos falls in line with the companies mission statement to:
Build only products we love. Provide incredible hospitality to our customers, and change the world by getting more people on bikes.
