It's right for you if...
You don't want to ride trails, you want to fly across them – and you want a bike that can match you mile for mile through races and marathon single-track sessions. You appreciate the performance advantage of carbon and want a super-light bike with race-level components and suspension.
The tech you get
An OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain with an upgraded carbon crank, carbon Bontrager Kovee Elite wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive hub for fast engagement, 100 mm FOX Performance 32 Float front and rear suspension with remote lockout and Trek's exclusive RE:aktiv XC damper, and a carbon bar and seatpost.
The final word
Light, fast and efficient. The carbon frame, carbon components, and our smartest, fastest and most efficient XC suspension make the Top Fuel 9.8 SL right for riders who want a rocket of a bike to tackle cross-country racing and marathons.
favorite_borderWhy you'll love it
- This bike wants to go fast – it's built with no-nonsense, high-performance parts designed for flat-out speed
- The dual suspension remote locks out both front and rear shocks simultaneously for climbs and sprints
- Make it yours: it's fully customisable through Project One
- The super-efficient RE:aktiv XC shock offers a unique advantage with tech borrowed from Formula One racing
Handlebar-mounted controls let you lock out your suspension on the fly as you switch terrains.
Smart Wheel Size
The right wheel size paired with your frame size gives you the perfect combination of responsiveness and control.
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.
Wider dropouts (110mm front, 148mm rear) give you the stiffness of a 27.5" wheel with all the benefits of a 29" wheel, and Boost148 at the back lets you run wider tyres and a larger chain ring without affecting q-factor and pedalling efficiency.
