(3 reviews)
SKU: 5276857

5,499.00$

Fuel EX 9.8 is a hard-charging trail bike with a light and stiff carbon frame that’s smooth, 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 customizable. 150mm front and 140mm 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.

Description

It’s right for you if…

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, rock-gobbling premium suspension, and appreciate when you can keep your setup clean and minimalist with wireless 12-speed shifting.

The tech you get

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 tires so you can spend less time fixing flats. Finally, you’ll find adjustable geometry and in-frame storage for keeping your setup dialed just for you.

The final word

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.

3 reviews for TREK Fuel EX 9.8 GX AXS Gen 6

  1. Jason F

    I really like the bike.The best feature is the electronic shifting,it’s a game changer for me.I have had issue with pain in my hands from arthritis,so manual shifting became a problem on a Mountain bike.The bike rides great holds it lines and climbs well.The only down side is the paint job on the bike has already chipped.I rode Pivot Mountain bikes for over 20 years and thought I would never find a bike that I like better.Well I did find a bike that rides better.Trek did a great job building this bike!!

  2. Aron Hill

    I am a HS mountain bike coach and needed a bike that could take a beating be fun to ride. TREK really nailed it with this bike! I love the seat tube position for climbing, and the suspension handles like a dre

  3. Ponda

    I upgraded from a Top Fuel 9.7 NX to this 2023 Fuel EX 9.8 GX AXS Gen 6. I Love it! I like the fact that I can control via the AXS app the shifting sequence on the rear derailleur. The 150/140 travel is amazing over tech features. The frame storage holds a tube, CO2/Head and tire wrench. Carbon frame and tires help with weight along with the 10-52 gearing for up and downhills. Looking forward to many rides as this should be my last big purchase
