Buy Trek Fuel EX 9.8 GX Full Suspension Bike

The Fuel EX 9.8 combines a lightweight full carbon frame with parts carefully selected for their value for money. A high-performance FOX chassis with revised damping elements at the front and rear, carbon wheels with a Rapid Drive rear wheel hub, and SRAM’s latest wide gear shift group give this model special handling characteristics that you will feel right away on the first meter.

It’s the right bike for you if…

… you want a single bike that has the low weight and shock-absorbing properties that only a carbon frame can offer and with which you can master any trail. At the same time, you’re willing to pay for parts that give you a better feel and feedback on the trail, but without unnecessary bling.

You get this equipment

A light and stiff full carbon frame with integrated storage compartment, FOX Performance 36 suspension fork with GRIP damper cartridge that offers better adjustment options, and a RE:aktiv shock absorber with Thru Shaft. Plus SRAM’s latest GX Eagle drivetrain with power-saving 52-tooth climbing gear, and all-new Bontrager carbon wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive rear hub for fast traction.

The Final Word

The Fuel EX 9.8 is a great investment if you want your bike to take on any terrain. It has a lightweight carbon frame, but it’s the components that make this model stand out from the crowd, like the highly tunable GRIP damper cartridge, the comfortable ride thanks to Thru Shaft and the breathtaking acceleration of the carbon wheels with Rapid Drive hub.

Integrated storage compartment

Thanks to the integrated storage compartment, you can leave your backpack at home without having to do without the essentials for your trip.

Active Braking Pivot

Active Braking Pivot allows our engineers to fine-tune how the suspension responds independently to acceleration and braking forces. This gives you more confidence in critical situations.

RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft

RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft provides unbeatable traction and control because the damper reacts faster than any other to uneven terrain.

Straight Shot with Knock Block

Trek’s Straight Shot frame design optimizes the stiffness-to-weight ratio for a more responsive ride. This allows you to drive even harder without losing ground contact even in tricky situations.

Control Freak Cable Routing System

The lightest, quietest, and most versatile cable routing system allows any combination of derailleur, brake, lockout, and dropper post routing through the frame for a clean look and the ultimate custom setup.


Wider dropouts (110mm front, 148mm rear) provide the stiffness of a 27.5″ wheel and offer all the advantages of a 29er. And with Boost148 on the rear wheel, you can run wider tires and a larger chainring without the Q-factor and the propulsion efficiency suffer.

Geometry adjustable via Mino Link

Adjust the steering angle (by 0.5°) and the bottom bracket height (by up to 10 mm) by simply turning a threaded nut. Turn the threaded nut and choose between slack and an even slacker geometry without affecting the performance of the chassis. Exclusive to Trek.

Complete Tubeless System

Tubeless Ready rims and tires make it easy to switch to a tubeless system – for more traction, fewer punctures, and lighter weight. Thanks to the included TLR rim strips, TLR valves, and sealant, you can start converting immediately.

Carbon Care Wheel Loyalty Program

Every Bontrager carbon wheel is covered by our Carbon Care Wheel Loyalty Program. In the unlikely event that you damage your Bontrager carbon wheels within the first two years of your original purchase, we’ll repair or replace them for free.
