It's right for you if...
You’re looking for a do-it-all full suspension mountain bike that's efficient and fast yet capable of hitting some bigger stuff. You want the performance boost of a carbon frame, and you plan to put this bike through its paces on every style of trail, from flowy to techy.
The tech you get
A light and stiff full carbon frame, 120 mm RockShox Reba RL fork, 115 mm of rear travel with a FOX Performance Float shock and a 1x12 SRAM NX Eagle drive train. Plus, Bontrager DropLock dual remote suspension lockout, a Bontrager Line Dropper, and Tubeless Ready Bontrager Kovee Comp 23 wheels.
The final word
Top Fuel 9.7 is an efficient and capable down country bike that's at home on technical trails and XC courses. What sets this model apart is the lightweight carbon frame and solid parts spec that make for great performance at a great value.
favorite_borderWhy you'll love it
- The full carbon frame gives you a light, responsive ride
- This short-travel bike has a killer suspension set-up reminiscent of the all-mighty mullet – it's both efficient and ready to party
- Bontrager DropLock's shifter-style lever lets you easily lock out both front and rear shocks at the same time for added sprinting or climbing efficiently. Plus, it controls your dropper post too
- Mino Link lets you make small adjustments to your geometry quickly and easily, even mid-ride
- You get a Straight Shot downtube for extra-stiff, responsive handling without added weight and a Knock Block headset that protects against spinning bars and fork crowns
Will my bike have a curved top tube?
Smaller frames (S) have a top tube that dips down as it approaches the seat tube. This design makes for a lower standover height, which is good for shorter riders because it allows them to straddle their bike more easily. The larger frames (M and ML) have a straight top tube because taller riders with longer legs typically don’t have the same issues with standover height.
Straight Shot downtube
Straight Shot downtube gives you an extra-stiff frame without adding any weight, so you can stick your line through the rough stuff and still fly up the next climb.
Bontrager DropLock Lever
One easy-to-use lever locks out your suspension and controls your dropper post with no unnecessary handlebar clutter.
Control Freak cable management
The lightest, quietest, most versatile cable management system allows any combination of shift, brake, lockout and dropper post lines to be routed through the frame for clean looks and the ultimate custom set-up.
