Description

Fuel EX 9.8 combines a light full-carbon frame with parts chosen for the highest performance-to-price ratio. A high-end 130 mm rear and 140 mm front FOX suspension with upgraded front and rear dampers, carbon wheels with a Rapid Drive rear hub and SRAM's latest, widest-range drivetrain give this model an extra edge that you'll notice from the first pedal stroke.

You want a single bike that can handle any trail with the light weight and vibration damping of a carbon frame. You're willing to pay for parts that give you a better connection with the trail, but you'd rather skip the bling.

A light and stiff full-carbon frame with internal storage, FOX Performance 36 fork with wider stanchions for more stiffness on rough terrain and a RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft shock. SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain with a leg-saving 52-tooth climbing gear, plus Bontrager carbon wheels with a 108-tooth Rapid Drive hub for instant engagement.

Fuel EX 9.8 is a great investment for one bike that does it all. You get a light carbon frame, but it's the parts that make this model, like the extra-adjustable GRIP damper, the magic-carpet ride of Thru Shaft and the blistering acceleration of carbon wheels with a Rapid Drive hub.
- Fuel EX 9.8 will take your riding to the next level with a parts package that gives you top-shelf performance without the top-shelf price tag
- RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft works faster than a normal shock, so it tracks the ground better and keeps you in control
- The Fox Performance 36 fork gives you four-way damping adjustments for extra-dialled suspension
- We expanded our size range to ensure 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

Will my bike have a curved top tube?
Smaller frames (XS and S) have a top tube that dips down as it approaches the seat tube. This design makes for a lower standover height, which is good for shorter riders because it allows them to straddle their bike more easily. Larger frames (M and up) have a straight top tube because taller riders with longer legs typically don?t have the same issues with standover height.

Internal Storage
Internal frame storage makes it easy to ditch the pack and still carry your ride essentials.

Active Braking Pivot
Active Braking Pivot allows our engineers to tune how the suspension reacts to acceleration and braking forces independently. That means you get more confident control when you need it most.

RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft
RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft gives you unmatched grip and control with a shock that reacts to the terrain faster than anything else out there.

Straight Shot w/Knock Block
Trek's Straight Shot frame design optimises the stiffness-to-weight ratio for a more responsive ride. You'll be able to push harder and stay more planted on your line when the going gets rough.
