It's right for you if...
You have expensive taste and don't want to sacrifice performance for anything. You want a bike that not only rallies the mountain top to bottom, but looks damn good doing it. From the carbon frame and wheels to fully wireless SRAM XX1 drivetrain, you'll get a bike built with meticulous care and attention to detail, while the space-age TQ transmission quietly assists you back to the top so you can take on lap after lap of singletrack.
The tech you get
An OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with a fully encased 360 Wh battery, and space-age TQ harmonic pin ring transmission with a smart charging port, integrated LED display and discreet handlebar remote. 150 mm of RockShox Lyrik Ultimate fork with AirWiz, DebonAir spring, Charger 3 RC2 damper, and 140 mm of RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate rear suspension. Plus, light and stiff carbon wheels set up tubeless, and SRAM's top-tier XX1 AXS wireless electronic group set.
The final word
The Fuel EXe 9.9 takes mountain biking to the next level with industry-changing technology from the quiet-and-compact TQ transmission to the meticulously laid carbon frame. It's the best of both worlds – it rallies the trail like a traditional bike on descents but rips back to the top with natural assist on climbs. And what's more, it's fully equipped with a treasure trove of components, like the upgraded RockShox suspension package with AirWiz, and a fully wireless SRAM XX1 AXS drivetrain.
