With a blend of SRAM NX and GX components, the 2020 Trek Fuel EX 9.7 brews up superb value in a carbon MTB.
Fuel EX 9.7 is a full suspension carbon trail bike with performance tech where it makes the biggest difference. It pairs a lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, quality FOX suspension, and powerful 4-piston brakes to make a fast, fun mountain bike that can carve around corners, weave through tricky descents, and charge through rock gardens with ease.
A lightweight and stiff full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with Carbon Armor, a 140mm FOX Rhythm 34 fork, 130mm of rear travel with a FOX Float Performance rear shock with Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv damper, a wide-range 1x12 SRAM NX/GX Eagle drivetrain, a Bontrager Line dropper post, Tubeless Ready Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels, and powerful Shimano 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes. An internal storage compartment and Control Freak cable routing add to the bike's capability and sleek look.
We would be remiss not to point out the cool Miami Green-Teal Fade finish option!
