If you are looking for a superfast XC bike which has been race proven then look no further than the Trek Top Fuel 9.8. Designed for the rigours of World Cup XC courses the Top Fuel is equally at home on all types of XC trail, you don't have to be a racer to get the benefits of this bike. Riders such as Dan McConnell and Emily Batty have proven the Top Fuel's potential on the international race circuit but Trek's technologies such as ABP, Full floater and Smart Wheel Size will help any rider conquer the trail.
Trek have designed the Top Fuel 9.8 with their Full Floater suspension layout, which enables them to fine tune the spring rate for better performance throughout the travel and across a wide variety of terrain, while their one-piece EVO link provides extra frame stiffness. Being a cross-country bike where speed and efficiency matter, Top Fuel gets Smart Wheel Size for the fastest wheel that fits. Larger sizes from 17.5 and up get 29" wheels while the 15.5 gets more proportional 27.5" wheels. All 29er Top Fuels benefit from Boost 148/110 hub spacing for increased wheel stiffness and control, plus Boost allows Trek to shorten the chainstays and provide more tyre and chainring clearance.
Another notable feature for the Top Fuel is the addition of Mino Link, which allows riders to easily adjust their head tube angle by ½ degree to suit their riding style or terrain. Trek also gave Top Fuel their Control Freak cable management system, which allows riders to internally route any combination of cables or hoses for a clean, customised set up.
Using Trek's superlight OCLV Mountain carbon for its mainframe and aluminium alloy for its stays the Top Fuel 9.8 is lightweight, fast and at a great price point. If you want to go fast XC with a smile on your face then we highly recommend the Trek Top Fuel 9.8.
IMPORTANT: This bicycle is supplied without pedals. Pedals for this bicycle can be selected for no cost using Podium Points™.
