Light a new fire
What people are saying
The Trek Fuel EX 9.8 has years of staying power to prove itself as one of the most versatile trail bikes available. With the addition of 27.5-inch wheels and Formula One technology, it just got better. The end result: Trek's new Fuel EX 9.8 with RE:aktiv damping is no joke and is a truly well-rounded trail bike.
Mountain Bike Action
The little wheels dive easily in and out of corners and around switchbacks. This bike is a blast to ride. It prefers to dance around on the trail, finding obstacles to play on or pop off. I've been having an absolute blast on the EX 27.5. It's a fantastic bike that keeps a smile on my face all day. If you're in the market for a new trail bike, it's definitely worth checking out.
It's undoubtedly a fun bike on the trail and, it also seems highly capable. Toss in the very good pedalling performance and you end up with an immensely versatile machine.
