Trek Fuel EX 9.8 GX AXS Mountain Bike In Deep Smoke

Season:2023

Brand:Trek

Code:FE9GAG6DS

The Fuel EX 9.8 is a hard-charging trail bike with a light and stiff carbon frame that's smooth and quiet, and holds its own when you pick a line.

It's loaded with the latest tech like a wireless SRAM GX AXS drivetrain that's super clean-looking and customisable. 150 mm front and 140 mm rear suspension keep you in control on the roughest trails and it's all topped off with carbon Bontrager wheels with a quick-engaging hub.

You want a full suspension ride that can handle anything you throw its way. You want the vibration-damping benefits of a carbon frame and wheels and rock-gobbling premium suspension, and appreciate when you can keep your set-up clean and minimalist with wireless 12-speed shifting.

A light-and-stiff carbon frame with a full FOX Performance suspension package that turns chunky rock gardens into smooth sailing. Carbon wheels that keep weight down while offering stiff and reliable tracking. Plus, the wireless shifting of SRAM GX AXS, and tubeless hoops and tyres so you can spend less time fixing flats. Finally, you'll find adjustable geometry and in-frame storage for keeping your set-up dialled just for you.

The Fuel EX 9.8 is the evolution of years of trail riding, with longer front geometry for taking on steep descents, and a steeper seat tube for hammering back up to do it again. Its carbon frame keeps things light, and SRAM GX AXS shifting takes things up a notch for those who want the latest tech.

Features:

  • Its lightweight carbon frame and progressive geometry are built to tackle steep and gnarly descents and punchy climbs alike
  • 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
  • You get the latest technology in SRAM's workhorse GX group set, with wireless AXS shifting
  • With the adjustable angle headset (angled cups sold separately) and Mino Link, you can choose from six different geometry configurations
  • We expanded our 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
