Trek is expanding its already wide range of e-bikes with the Fuel EXe 8 GX AXS T-Type. The manufacturer has dispensed with the carbon frame, but the weight of 20.25 kilograms for a full-suspension e-bike is still absolutely reasonable. A lightweight mid-motor, the TQ HPR50, is installed, which has a maximum torque of 50 Nm and a maximum output of 300 watts. This is accompanied by a battery with a capacity of 360 Wh, which is rather small, so the e-bike may quickly run out of steam, especially in demanding off-road use with steep inclines. An LED display with Bluetooth and ANT+ support is available.
The suspension parts come from Fox. The Fox Rhythm 36 Float front suspension has a travel of 150 millimeters, while a Fox Performance Float X is used for the rear. 29-inch Bontrager Line Comp Tubeless Ready tires form the front and rear, which are 2.5 inches wide. Wider tires are not supported.
SRAM’s 12-speed wireless GX AXS transmission is installed. The hydraulic disc brakes, each with four brake pistons, also come from SRAM, with the DB 8 brakes each gripping 200 millimeter brake discs. The Fuel EXe 8 GX AXS T-Type is priced at USD 7399 and is also available directly from Trek.

I have been active as a journalist for over 10 years, most of it in the field of technology. I worked for Tom’s Hardware and ComputerBase, among others, and have been working for Notebookcheck since 2017. My current focus is particularly on mini PCs and single-board computers such as the Raspberry Pi – so in other words, compact systems with a lot of potential. In addition, I have a soft spot for all kinds of wearables, especially smartwatches. My main profession is as a laboratory engineer, which is why neither scientific contexts nor the interpretation of complex measurements are foreign to me.

Growing up in regional Australia, I first became acquainted with computers in my early teens after a broken leg from a football (soccer) match temporarily condemned me to a predominately indoor lifestyle. Soon afterwards I was building my own systems. Now I live in Germany, having moved here in 2014, where I study philosophy and anthropology. I am particularly fascinated by how computer technology has fundamentally and dramatically reshaped human culture, and how it continues to do so.
