2019 TREK Top Fuel 9.7 – 17.5”(Medium)
Top Fuel 9.7 is a high-performance full-suspension cross country mountain bike with an OCLV Mountain Carbon main frame. It’s light, stiff and built for smooth speed with 100 mm of front and rear suspension travel and a 1×12 SRAM NX drivetrain. It’s also equipped with a TwistLoc remote suspension lockout, which lets you lock out the front and rear suspension simultaneously with a simple twist of the grip.
- You get carbon where it counts and an alloy rear end to keep the cost down
- TwistLoc simultaneously locks out front and rear shocks for climbs and sprints with the simple Grip Shift-like motion
- Internal cable routing opens the door for upgrades like a dropper post
