Trek's Top Fuel: proven on trails, feared at the races. The 9.8 SL uses an OCLV carbon frame that's incredibly light and stiff, giving you a bike that weighs less than most hardtails. All of Trek's stellar technology is here: G2 geometry, carbon armor, internal cable routing, plus the E2 head tube, EVO Rocker link, and Full Floater shock mount. It all boils down to a bike built for blistering XC speed that tracks like a dream. RockShox supplies their 100mm SID XX in front and Monarch XX rear shock with a bar-mounted remote. Add a SRAM X1 group supplying 1x11 power to tubeless-ready DT Swiss wheels and you'll stay at the front of the pack. The rest of the gear is just as good with Bontrager components including a carbon bar and post and Ti-railed saddle.
