The Trek Fuel Ex 8's do-it-all suspension capabilities make it ideal for singletrack obstacle-riddled terrain. The bike’s full-suspension system gives riders the precise suspension required to absorb every bump, while maintaining crucial speed. The DRCV fork has dual chambers that alternate, while the rear shock automatically adjusts its volume as needed. This allows riders to max out the use of Fuel Ex 8's 120 mms of travel for an effortless flow and smooth ride—especially when that rock jumps out of nowhere. ($2,730; trekbikes.com)
