Fuel EX 9.8 XT

Fuel EX 9.8 combines a light full-carbon frame with parts chosen for the highest performance-to-price ratio. High-end FOX suspension with upgraded front and rear dampers, carbon wheels with a Rapid Drive rear hub, and a super-smooth Shimano XT wide-range drivetrain give this model an extra edge you'll notice from the first pedal stroke.
