We are often asked about the differences between the Top Fuel and the Fuel EX ranges. While their names are similar they are very different bikes. In the briefest possible terms, the Top Fuel is the bike for the cross country orientated rider that is looking to go fast both up and down hills, whereas the Fuel EX is for the rider that is happy to sacrifice speed on the climbs for greater downhill technical capabilities and handling prowess. 

Includes comprehensive, personalised bike fitting plus bundled accessories and 14 months of FREE servicing. Hendry Cycles' new bike packages that are amongst the best value in the country and we stand behind our products with high quality servicing & repairs.
