It’s right for you if…
You want a trail bike that’s ready to ride everywhere, and gives you a little extra fuel on the ascents. You don’t want to sacrifice the nimble feel of a traditional trail bike for a beefy motor, and prefer a refined assist that feels – and sounds – natural underneath you.
The tech you get
An OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with a fully encased 360 Wh battery, and TQ harmonic pin ring transmission with a smart charging port, integrated LED display and discreet handlebar remote. 150 mm RockShox 35 Gold RL fork with DebonAir spring and Motion Control damper, and 140 mm RockShox Deluxe Select+ rear suspension. Plus, tubeless-ready wheels and tyres, and 12-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain.
The final word
The Fuel EXe 9.5 is a lively trail bike that gives you extra boost on the climbs, and feels like a traditional bike on descents. It’s packed with space-age technology of a TQ harmonic pin ring transmission, plenty of buttery-smooth suspension to gobble up rocks and roots, and a workhorse drivetrain that won’t quit on you.
