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, 130 mm RockShox Pike Select+ fork, 120 mm of rear travel with a RockShox Deluxe Ultimate RCT shock and a SRAM GX Eagle AXS wireless electronic transmission with an extra-low 52-tooth climbing gear. Plus, wide Bontrager Line Elite 30 carbon wheels with a 108-tooth Rapid Drive hub for instant engagement, Bontrager Line Elite Dropper and Bontrager RSL integrated carbon bar/stem combo.
The final word
The 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 transmission.
Why you'll love it
- You get clean shifts, even under load, with SRAM's smart, smooth and completely wireless GX Eagle AXS transmission
- A sleek internal storage compartment gives you a versatile spot to stow tools and gear
