 The Top Fuel family brings World Cup performance to you, making every inch of trail go by that much faster.

When Trek revived the Top Fuel moniker, it knew it had to keep the incredible features from the Fuel EX line that make it such a world-beater in trail bikes. The Active Braking Pivot -or ABP- rear suspension geometry and Full Floater shock mount makes the Top Fuel a true standout in full-suspension cross country mountain bikes. Instant reaction to changing surfaces and terrain, as well as zero shock compression during hard braking make the Top Fuel a winner in the arena of cross country race machines. Adding all that race-bred tech to an OCLV Mountain carbon fiber frame elevates the Top Fuel 9.8 SL beyond its competitors, ensuring feather-light weight and incredible torsional strength. Trek's G2 frame geometry has been proven time and again during cross-country races around the world, and that geometry is found on the Top Fuel as well. A tapered E2 head tube adds an extra dash of razor-sharpness to the Top Fuel's handling, while a press-fit PF92 bottom bracket anchors the SRAM crankset for flex-free power delivery. Control Freak internal cable routing keeps the Top Fuel 9.8 SL looking clean and sleek with no rattles, while carbon armor under the down tube resists flying gravel and debris. The Top Fuel's overall geometry can be tweaked slightly by rotating the Mino Link suspension pivot at the top of the rear stays. Want a more relaxed geometry? simply rotate the Mino Link to get a slacker head angle for a more stable feel.

Out back, the air-adjustable Fox Performance Float shock boasts a RE:Aktiv XC 2-position damper, keeping the Top Fuel 9.8 anchored to the singletrack. From small-bump compliance to hard landings, the RE:aktiv rear shock responds to everything with just the right amount of response, keeping you in control with 100mm of travel. Up front, an air-adjustable Fox Performance 32 Float suspension fork helps tackle rock gardens and root "fun houses" with 100mm of travel. A 15mm thru-axle keeps the front wheel where you point it, while a 2-position damper adds even more control, depending on rider preference.

SRAM has been at the forefront of mountain bike component tech, and their latest 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle components are no exception. A SRAM Eagle GX shifter and Eagle GX Roller Bearing Clutch rear derailleur operate with lightning-quickness, even under hard pedaling loads. A 12-speed SRAM 10-50T cassette and carbon fiber SRAM Stylo Eagle crankset with a direct-mount 32T chainring offers a massive gearing range for challenging trails and climbs. A SRAM Eagle chain is there to make sure shifting and power transfer is all top-notch. Bontrager's tubeless-ready Kovee Elite 23 wheels are shod with tubeless-ready XR2 Team Issue tires, bringing bags of grip and easy acceleration to the Top Fuel 9.8 SL. The Kovee Elite wheelset features Boost110/148 hubs, adding wider flanges for improved lateral rigidity in the wheels. helping to keep speed reigned in a set of SRAM Level TLM hydraulic disc brakes. A Ti-railed Bontrager Montrose Elite saddle sits atop an alloy Bontrager Pro seatpost, while an alloy Bontrager Pro stem and Race X Lite OCLV carbon fiber handlebar complete this race-ready machine.
