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 SRAM's latest, widest-range drive train give this model an extra edge you'll notice from the first pedal stroke.
It's right for you if...
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.
 
The tech you get
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. SRAM's latest GX Eagle drive train with a leg-saving 52-tooth climbing gear, plus all-new Bontrager carbon wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive hub for fast engagement.
 
The final word
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.
 
Why you'll love it
  • Fuel EX 9.8 will take your riding to the next level with a parts package that gives you top-shelf performance without the top-shelf price tag
  • RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft works faster than a normal shock, so it tracks the ground better and keeps you in control
  • The Fox Performance 36 fork gives you four-way damping adjustments for extra-dialled suspension
  • 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
