It's right for you if...
You ride single-track fast, and you're no stranger to XC races. You want the lightweight advantage of carbon, performance parts and incredible suspension – and you want it all at great value.
The tech you get
A lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, FOX Performance 32 Float Step-Cast fork, a FOX Performance rear shock with Trek-exclusive RE:aktiv XC damper, plus dual-remote suspension lockout. You also get a SRAM NX 1x11 drivetrain and Tubeless Ready wheels.
The final word
With Top Fuel 9.7, you're getting a lot of speed for your money. It's an outstanding all-around XC rig, but what you're really paying for is the lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon main frame and the jump in performance that comes along with it.
