The Fuel EXe 9.8 XT is a new breed of mountain bike that brings nearly invisible power to the trail in an e-package that's compact and adapts to your riding. It's fully loaded with a tiny-but-mighty TQ transmission that gives you assist when you need it but disappears for a true trail bike feel on descents. A carbon fibre frame keeps your ride light and responsive, and an upgraded RockShox suspension package pairs with Shimano XT shifting to finish the build with the perfect balance of performance and price.
You're a trail rider who wants the best of both traditional and e-mountain bikes. You don't want to compromise on nimble control for power, but want a little assist on the ups. You appreciate the latest technology and want upgrades where they matter most. You don't want to lose out on the natural experience of mountain biking and want a refined motor that quietly assists while you ride.
