Fuel EX 9.8 is an all-around trail bike that blends the light, smooth ride of a carbon frame with upgraded parts made for hard rides.
This custom Fuel EX 9.8 comes with SRAM GX Mechanical drive train, Blackbird Send 29" Aluminum wheels, Fox Float X rear shock, Lyric Select+ fork and XT 4p brakes.
Why you'll love it
You'll get the lightweight and vibration-damping benefits of a full carbon frame, and geometry built to handle anything
It comes with light and stiff carbon wheels that make quick work of technical terrain and keep you on your line, even when things get hairy
With the adjustable angle headset (angled cups sold separately) and Mino Link, you can choose from six different geometry configurations
Trek expanded its size range to ensure a better fit for all riders and use the best-fitting wheels for each frame size: XS frames get 27.5˝ wheels, S frames get to choose between 27.5˝ or 29˝, and sizes M and up get 29˝ wheels
It's right for you
You're chasing long flowy and technical descents, and want to pedal back to the top for more, lap after lap. You want the vibration-damping benefits of a carbon frame and carbon wheels, plus upgraded suspension that smooths out the rough and rowdy.
The final word
Fuel EX 9.8 is the culmination of years of trail riding and progression, with longer front-end geometry for tackling steeper and hairier descents, and a steeper seat tube to keep you perched on climbs. It's equipped with the cherry-picked components you want, like upgraded suspension, carbon wheels, and a SRAM GX drivetrain.
