Details

Big XC epics, all-mountain shreds, ride it all with Trek's Fuel EX 9.7 29. The 120mm carbon frame, dialed G2 geometry, and host of Trek technology defines XC agility with long-travel, trail-bike sure-footedness. Fox handles the suspension with their DRCV-equipped shock out back and a 120mm Float fork up front to keep you on your line, no matter how gnarly. And this sick-fast bike is equipped with a do-it-all component mix including an SLX/XT drivetrain, SLX brakes, and fast, tubeless-ready Bontrager wheels wrapped with fat rubber.

Trek's Full Floater shock mount boasts two suspended points that allow the shock to "float" through its range of action for seemingly bottomless travel and excellent tracking over every type of terrain.
Trek's E2 head tube is 1.5-inches in diameter at the bottom and 1 1/8-inches at the top. This maximizes front-end stiffness for awesome steering precision and control, while allowing the use of standard 1 1/8-inch stems and not adding much weight.
Trek's EVO rocker link is a one-piece, magnesium linkage that drastically increases rear-end stiffness and decreases total frame weight, too.
Trek's G2 Geometry (version 2 of Gary Fisher's Genesis Geometry) delivers the ultimate ride for every trail. Genesis earned rave reviews for awesome handling on climbs and descents thanks to a long top tube paired with a short stem that moves the front wheel forward for top-notch confidence and control, while short chainstays add phenomenal traction. G2 Geometry takes these handling traits to the next level by boosting control on tight singletrack and technical climbs, too. This is accomplished by increasing the amount of fork offset (reducing trail), which makes G2 bikes steer more quickly, and by shortening the reach, which puts more weight on the front wheel for even better control and confidence. The two animations above showcase how G2 Geometry provides the perfect ride.
