The 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 single-track and XC races to the gnarliest descents. You prioritise 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 Armour, a 130 mm FOX Rhythm fork, a 130 mm FOX Float Performance rear shock with Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv damper, a wide-range SRAM NX 1x11 drivetrain, a Bontrager Drop Line dropper post and Tubeless Ready Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels.


The final word
The 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.
