It's right for you if...
You’re looking for a do-it-all full suspension mountain bike that's efficient and fast, but doesn't shy away from some bigger stuff. You want the added stiffness and weight savings of a carbon frame, and want blazing fast wireless electronic shifting.
The tech you get
A light and stiff full carbon frame, 120mm RockShox SID Select+ fork, 120mm of rear travel with a SID Luxe shock, and a SRAM GX Eagle AXS wireless electronic drivetrain with an extra-low 52-tooth climbing gear. Plus, wide carbon Bontrager Line Elite 30 wheels with a 108-tooth Rapid Drive hub for instant engagement, Bontrager Line Elite Dropper, and carbon handlebars.
The final word
Top Fuel 9.8 is a ridiculously fun carbon down-country bike with upgraded parts that give you big benefits on the trail, like more speed from the carbon wheels, more grip from the ultra-smooth suspension, and faster, more precise shifts from the AXS drivetrain.

"This is a really, really good bike"
"The Top Fuel is a very capable descender, but its well-proportioned geometry is just half the story. It manages to strike a great balance between grip, tracking, and precision. The whole bike seems to just will you on to hit things faster and with more precision."Read more
"This thing rips"
"The new Top Fuel is also much more composed on rough and fast descents. Thanks to the longer reach and slacker head angle, the overall wheelbase length has grown by almost 40mm. That’s huge, and it offers a vastly more planted feel at speed. Along with the big tyres and active suspension, this really is a solid little trail bike."Read more

Quick and in control
120mm of rear travel combined with progressive trail geometry gives you a fast, responsive ride that helps you keep your cool when the trail turns rowdy.
Will my bike have a curved top tube?
Smaller frames (XS and S) have a curved top tube. This design makes for a lower standover height, which allows shorter riders to straddle the bike more easily. Larger frames (M and up) have a straight top tube because taller riders with longer legs typically don't have the same issues with standover height.
Carbon Care Wheel Loyalty Program
Every set of Bontrager carbon wheels is backed by the Carbon Care Wheel Loyalty Program. In the unlikely event that you damage your Bontrager carbon wheels within the first two years of ownership, we’ll repair or replace them for free.
Oversized 34.9mm dropper post
Bigger is better. The oversized seat tube diameter gives more support and strength for longer travel droppers, and allows for more robust, durable internals that work faster.
Threaded bottom bracket
More robust than pressfit, threaded BBs hold up in nasty conditions and make servicing easier.
International Standard Chain Guide mounts offer easy chain guide installation and adjustment.

Sizing & Tech
The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local retailer.
