This Trek Fuel EX 9.8 29 Project One Blue is available with our legendary Podium Point free accessory scheme.

This Trek Fuel EX 9.8 features a preselected Project One paint scheme giving you an exclusive look but shorter delivery time than the full custom Project One models.

Trek's Fuel EX line has always been one of our favourite ranges of trail bikes and for 2017 it's just got better. The Fuel EX 9.8 features an OCLV carbon frameset, carbon seatstays and alloy chainstays, which offers a boost in stiffness and reduction in weight over the alloy models.

As the demands of trail riders have increased, Fuel EX has evolved too. For 2017 the Fuel EX frame features a steeper head angle for better stability on steeper pitches, a straighter downtube which massively increase frame stiffness, Knock Block frame protection to guard against spinning bars and forks in the event of an accident and the Control Freak cable management system for a neat and tidy setup. The suspension system still uses key tech such as ABP, Full Floater, EVO Link but the leverage ratio has been modified to better suit the current range of shocks. Front and rear suspension travel has been upped to 130mm too giving even more control whilst remaining an efficient pedalling system.

Trek's Fuel EX 9.8 is perfect for UK trail riders who find themselves on a wide variety of terrain from XC, through Trail and nudging All Mountain. Fuel EX is versatile and capable, perfect for the most challenging trails and all day spins.

IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals. Pedals for this bicycle can be selected for no cost using Podium Points™.

IMPORTANT: This bicycle requires a suspension pump to set and tune its suspension correctly. This is not included as standard. A suspension pump can be selected for no cost using Podium Points™.
