The Fuel EXe 9.8 XT is a new breed of mountain bike that brings nearly invisible power to the trail in an e-package that's compact and adapts to your riding. It's fully loaded with a tiny-but-mighty TQ transmission that gives you assist when you need it but disappears for a true trail bike feel on descents. A carbon fibre frame keeps your ride light and responsive, and an upgraded RockShox suspension package pairs with Shimano XT shifting to finish the build with the perfect balance of performance and price.
It's right for you if...
You're a trail rider who wants the best of both traditional and e-mountain bikes. You don't want to compromise on nimble control for power, but want a little assist on the ups. You appreciate the latest technology and want upgrades where they matter most. You don't want to lose out on the natural experience of mountain biking and want a refined motor that quietly assists while you ride.
The tech you get

Plus, a 150 mm RockShox Lyrik Select+ fork with DebonAir spring and Charger 2.1 RC damper, and 140 mm RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ rear suspension. All wrapped up with the precise shifting and modulation of a Shimano XT drivetrain.
The final word
The Fuel EXe 9.8 is an e-bike that evolved for the trail, with a lively and playful ride on descents and intuitive assist that adapts to your riding on the climbs. Its equipped with a tiny and powerful TQ transmission that tucks away quietly so you can stay in the moment on the trail, and is finished off with the precise shifting of Shimano XT, carbon wheels and an upgraded suspension package, putting your money where it matters most.
