Features
Fuel EX 9.8 will take your riding to the next level with a parts package that gives you top-shelf performance without the top-shelf price tag  
RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft works faster than a normal shock, so it tracks the ground better and keeps you in control  
A sleek internal storage compartment gives you a handy spot to stow flat fixing supplies or gear  
We expanded our size range to ensure a better fit for all riders. And, you get the fastest wheel that fits your frame: XS frames get 27.5˝ wheels, S frames get to choose between 27.5˝ or 29˝ and sizes M to XL get 29˝ wheels  
Make it yours: it's customisable through Project One  

    It's right for you if...

    You want a single bike that can handle any trail with the light weight and vibration damping of a carbon frame. You're willing to pay for parts that give you a better connection with the trail, but you'd rather skip the bling.

    The tech you get

    A light and stiff full-carbon frame with internal storage, FOX Performance 36 fork with a GRIP damper that offers more adjustment and a RE:aktiv with Thru Shaft shock. A Shimano XT 1x12 drive train for super-smooth shifting that's easy on the thumb – plus an extra-low 51-tooth climbing gear and all-new Bontrager carbon wheels with a 108-tooth Rapid Drive hub for fast engagement.

    The final word

    Fuel EX 9.8 is a great investment for one bike that does it all. You get a light carbon frame, but it's the parts that make this model, like the extra-adjustable GRIP damper, the magic-carpet ride of Thru Shaft and the blistering acceleration of carbon wheels with a Rapid Drive hub.
