Trek say:

2020 model

Fuel EX 9.8 is the carbon trail bike that can fly through singletrack, throw down with the rowdy trail crew and crush miles during marathon races. A lightweight full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, 1x12 Shimano XT 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.

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 full carbon frame, quality parts build and advanced suspension make it an outstanding all-around mountain bike for endurance racing and ripping every kind of trail.

  • This bike is light, fast and capable of shredding any kind of trail whether you're heading out for an afternoon session or miles of endurance riding
  • RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft works faster than a normal shock, so it tracks the ground better and keeps you in control
  • A sleek internal storage compartment gives you a versatile spot to stow tools and gear
  • 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
  • Make it yours: it's customisable through Project One
