Fuel EX 9.8 is the versatile carbon trail bike that can climb with the XC crowd and throw down with the rowdy trail crew. A lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, 1×12 SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain, carbon wheels and FOX Performance Float suspension with Trek’s exclusive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft shock make it the perfect choice for all-mountain shredders who want a single bike that does it all.

It’s right for you if…

You like going fast, getting rowdy and clearing every obstacle on the first try. You want a single bike that can handle any trail, with high-quality parts, a carbon frame, and dialled suspension for everything from burly technical descents to singletrack and even XC races.

The tech you get

A light and stiff OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, Tubeless Ready Bontrager Line Carbon 30 wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive rear hub for quick engagement, a 1×12 SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain, a 130 mm FOX Performance 34 Float fork, and a FOX Performance Float shock featuring Trek’s exclusive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft. Plus, a Bontrager Line dropper post and a 35 mm Bontrager Line Pro OCLV Carbon handlebar.

The final word

The Fuel EX 9.8 is the definitive mountain bike, and a great choice if you’re going to invest in a single bike for all kinds of terrain. A carbon frame, quality parts build and advanced suspension make it an outstanding all-around mountain bike for every kind of trail.

Why you’ll love it

  1. It doesn’t box itself into a category: The Fuel EX brings trail bike plushness with an XC race bike feel for our most versatile mountain bike whip
  2. RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft works faster than a normal shock, so it tracks the ground better and keeps you in control
  3. It’s great for riders who don’t want to do just one kind of mountain biking, but want to explore everything from XC marathons to epic descents
  4. The SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain provides all the range you’ll ever need in the simplicity of a 1x set-up
