Product Details

Fuel EX 9.8 combines a light full-carbon frame with parts chosen for the highest performance-to-price ratio. High-end FOX suspension with upgraded front and rear dampers, carbon wheels with a Rapid Drive rear hub, and a super-smooth Shimano XT wide-range drivetrain give this model an extra edge you'll notice from the first pedal stroke.

  • You want a single bike that can handle any trail with the light weight and vibration damping of a carbon frame. You're willing to pay for parts that give you a better connection with the trail, but you'd rather skip the bling.
  • A light and stiff full-carbon frame with internal storage, FOX Performance 36 fork with a GRIP damper that offers more adjustment, and a RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft shock. A Shimano XT 1x12 drivetrain for super-smooth shifting that's easy on the thumb—plus an extra-low 51-tooth climbing gear, and all-new Bontrager carbon wheels with a 108-tooth Rapid Drive hub for fast engagement.
  • Fuel EX 9.8 is a great investment for one bike that does it all. You get a light carbon frame, but it's the parts that make this model, like the extra-adjustable GRIP damper, the magic-carpet ride of Thru Shaft, and the blistering acceleration of carbon wheels with a Rapid Drive hub.
