Trek's Fuel EX 6 maximizes your off-road action with Trek's super-efficient Full Floater suspension matched with a Fox shock that delivers 120mm of travel. Trek's Active Braking Pivot separates brake forces from suspension, for total control on rough sections whether you're braking or not. Control continues up front with a 120mm-travel RockShox Recon fork that keeps you flying through the burly stuff. And to keep your speed over all terrain, this sweet full-suspension rig is spec'd with powerful Elixir discs and a slick-shifting 27-speed Shimano drivetrain with an upgraded SLX rear derailleur. Plus, it boasts Bontrager's fast wheels and tires to keep you grounded, if that's your thing.

I upgraded from a Trek 3900 to the EX6 to bridge the gap bewteen my hardtail and full suspension needs. The EX6 has surpassed my expetations when it comes to quality. The only thing lacking is the braking. After a few longer rides the brakes tend to howl and get mushy. Will be upgrading soon.
I only weigh 150lb so this is all I need to take 6ft drops with plush landing. But getting up a hill is a work out due to its weight. Stock tires work great on hard dry dirt but in wet dirt and mud condition it's like biking on ice. Changed to maxxis minon on front and high roller on back.
I use my bike on highly technical trails. Lots of roots,rock gardens, swampy areas. The bike handles excellent. I love this bike.
wanted the ex8 but was a bit over my budget but cannot fault this bike a few upgrades set for the future as unless i win the lottery this will be my last bike purchase
