Trek's Fuel EX has always been one of our favourite trail bikes. Constantly evolving to keep up with the times the Trek Fuel EX 9.7 is bang up to date and capable of all types of riding from XC marathons to epic descents. Don't confuse the Fuel EX 9.7 with other value carbon models on the market, this bike provides an outstanding frame and suspension, with a workhorse drivetrain and wheels
The Fuel EX 9.7 features an OCLV Mountain carbon mainframe as an upgrade over the aluminium Fuel EX 8. The benefits of carbon on this type of bike are increased torsional stiffness for better handling and suspension performance as well as less weight. Suspension movements is controlled by a Fox Performance Float EVOL RE:aktiv 3-position damper rear shock and Fox Rhythm 34 Float fork with GRIP adjustable damper which give you an unprecedented level of control from the 130mm of travel.
The latest incarnation of 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 is 130mm too giving even more control whilst remaining an efficient pedalling system.
The Fuel EX 9.7's 29" wheels offer superb stability in technical sections and are fast rolling for open tracks. This makes for a super versatile machine.
Trek's Fuel EX 9.7 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.
IMPORTANT: This bicycle requires a suspension pump to set and tune its suspension correctly. This is not included as standard.
