Trek Fuel EX 9.8 XT Trail Bike In Deep Smoke

Season:2023

Brand:Trek

Code:FE9XG6DS

The Fuel EX 9.8 XT is an all-around trail bike that blends the light, smooth ride of a carbon frame with upgraded parts made for hard rides.

Decked out with 150 mm of front and 140 mm rear FOX Performance suspension, you'll be ready to float through the tough stuff, while carbon wheels keep you tracking through rowdy terrain. A Shimano XT drivetrain tops things off for precise shifting for power on descents and relief on long climbs.

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.

A light and stiff carbon frame with a full FOX Performance suspension package that smooths out rowdy rock gardens and root latices. Plus, carbon wheels that keep your set-up light, while a Shimano XT drivetrain for smooth shifting and brake modulation. 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 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 Shimano XT drivetrain.

Features:

  • You'll get the light weight 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

  • You get the precise shifting and brake modulation of a Shimano XT drivetrain, plus the simple reliability of a threaded bottom bracket
