Details

Fuel EX 9.7 29 is a versatile full suspension trail bike with performance tech where it makes the biggest difference. It blends the confidence and capability of 29er wheels, a lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, and quality FOX suspension to make a fast, fun mountain bike that can carve around corners, weave through tricky descents, and charge through rock gardens with ease.

It's right for you if...

You want a single carbon trail bike that can take on every adventure, from singletrack and XC races to the gnarliest descents. You prioritize a lightweight frame and performance suspension over the highest-end drivetrain available.

The tech you get

A lightweight and stiff OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with Carbon Armor, a 130mm FOX Rhythm fork, a 130mm FOX Float Performance rear shock with Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv damper, a wide-range 1x12 SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain, a Bontrager Line dropper post, and Tubeless Ready Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels.

The final word

Fuel EX full-suspension performance on a lightweight and trail-tough carbon frame makes for a fun and fast ride with the rugged capabilities of a long travel bike and the responsiveness of an XC bike. They don't call it a quiver-killer for nothing.

Why you'll love it

- Don't confuse 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
- You get carbon where it counts and an alloy rear end to keep the cost down
- It's great for riders who don't want to do just one kind of mountain biking, but want to explore everything from XC marathons to epic descents
- The shifter-style, underbar remote dropper post lever is super intuitive and easy to use
