Details

Fuel EX 9.8 GX AXS is a trail-charging machine that packs a punch on the singletrack with a lightweight and stiff carbon fiber frame that damps jarring vibrations and holds its own when you pick a line. It's loaded with the tech you want, like SRAM GX AXS wireless shifting for remarkably reliable shifting under load, plus a 150mm front and 140mm rear FOX Performance suspension package that smooths the roughest trails. It's all topped off with carbon Bontrager wheels that shed weight and keep tracking precise. 

- Fuel EX Gen 6 gives you 140/150mm of travel and slack, adjustable geometry for an extra capable ride, plus, in-frame storage on all models — even alloy

- It comes equipped with light and stiff carbon wheels that make quick work of technical terrain and keep you on your line when things get hairy

- You get the latest technology in SRAM's GX AXS 12-speed transmission for precision shifting — even under load, plus a FOX Performance suspension package

- With the adjustable angle headset (angled cups sold separately) and Mino Link, you can choose from six different geometry configurations

- We expanded our size range to ensure a better fit for all riders and use the best-fitting wheels for each frame size: XS frames get 27.5-inch wheels, S frames get to choose between 27.5-inch or 29-inch, and sizes M and up get 29-inch wheels
