Trek Fuel EX 9.7 SLX/XT Gen 6 Mountain Bike 2023
The Trek Fuel EX 9.7 SLX/XT Gen 6 Mountain Bike balances performance with budget-friendly components perfectly. It pairs a lightweight carbon frame with a 150/140mm travel FOX fork and FOX Performance Float X rear shock for bump-smoothing comfort. Progressive trail geometry gives you better control on descents and greater pedalling efficiency, with the Mino Link allowing you to tweak the geometry to best suit rider and terrain.
Shimano SLX and XT components are reliable and durable, able to handle the demands of off-road riding, while SRAM hydraulic discs take care of braking. Wheel size is frame-size dependent, and the bike rolls on either 27.5" or 29" wheels fitted with Bontrager XR5 tubeless-ready tyres.
