    Summary

    Expirience with the Trek Fuel EX 9.8 GX AXS

    Expirience with the Fuel EX 9.8 GX AXS 2022 With 140 mm travel on the fork, the Fuel EX 9.8 GX AXS is much more downhill-oriented than its little brother without the EX model suffix. With 13,2 kg weight for the complete bike, the Trek All Mountain joins the lighter bikes that you can buy for under under 8000 Euro. Most bikes in its class are heavier. The moderate 66 degree head tube angle ensures a balanced handling. The seating position of the on demanding trails moves in a moderate range between sporty and comfortable. If you look at the frame as the heart of a bike, then Trek has done everything right. The frame leaves a very presentable impression. If you love flying down steep, rocky and loamy trails, the All Mountain of Trek doesn't really suit you. Other manufacturers build All Mountain in the same price range that are more focused on descends. We like: 25 years warranty on the frame!
