Fuel EX 9.8 Women's is a high-performance carbon trail bike with 27.5-inch mid-fat wheels for confidence and traction when the trail gets rough. An OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, 1x12 SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain, FOX Performance suspension with Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft damper, and touchpoints designed for women make this the perfect choice for all-mountain shredders who want a single mountain bike that does it all.
It's right for you if...
You appreciate a little extra confidence on the trail. You value traction and stability, and want a lightweight carbon rig that rips it up and keeps the rubber side down. You side with riders who prefer the fit and feel of a bike made for women.
The tech you get
A lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, a stout FOX fork, and 130mm of rear travel featuring Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft. Plus, a Bontrager Line dropper post, a carbon Bontrager handlebar, Women's Specific Design touchpoints, Bontrager Line Carbon 40 wheels wrapped in mid-fat 27.5x2.8" tires, and a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain for incredible gear range.
The final word
Amazing traction and confidence on the trail. A lightweight carbon frame, Bontrager carbon wheels with grippy mid-fat tires, and a plush suspension setup come together for a trail bike that boosts your confidence and your abilities.
