Top Fuel 8 fuses the lightweight efficiency of a cross country bike with the capability and forgiveness of a full suspension trail bike. It's quick and nimble, and dishes out serious fun on flow trails and techy descents alike.
It's right for you if...
You’re looking for a do-it-all full suspension mountain bike that balances efficiency with shred-ability. You want to rip rough descents, fly up climbs and even do a couple XC races.
The tech you get
A lightweight aluminium frame, 120 mm RockShox Recon Gold RL fork with plush DebonAir spring, 115 mm of rear travel with a FOX Performance Float shock and a lighter SRAM NX Eagle drive train. Plus, hydraulic disc brakes, Bontrager DropLock dual remote suspension lockout and a Bontrager Line Dropper.
The final word
Top Fuel 8 gets you the value of an alloy frame with drive train, fork and brake upgrades that keep up as you progress in speed and skill.
