About The Top Fuel:
The Top Fuel is the bridge between Trail and Cross Country. Taking the light weight and efficiency of a pure XC bike and pairing it with the confident handling of a trail bike allows it to cover ground, fast, while maintaining an element of fun on more technical terrain.
The lightweight aluminium frame features 115mm of rear suspension travel, and a 120mm travel fork, which is just enough to provide comfort and traction without wallowing in too much travel. The Twist Loc remote mounted on the handlebars allows you to lock out front & rear suspension with one twist, meaning you can get on the gas for short, sharp climbs, road sections and sprints. The efficient ABP suspension system provides a stable platform for prolonged climbing and long distances, while opening up for bumps and obstacles on the descents. A relatively relaxed (for this style of bike) 67.5° head angle creates a confident ride that isn't out of it's depth on technical terrain, unlike a typical XC bike.
29" wheels with fast rolling tyres help keep your momentum up on long rides and provide a good contact area on the ground for decent grip. Bontrager's XR3 tyres in 2.4" width are a good option for long distance off road riding, rolling efficiently while still having enough bite for all but the wettest conditions. Coupled with the Kovee wheelset, it's a light package that is tubeless ready out of the box. The Fox shock and Rockshox fork pair up well to provide consistent and predictable suspension that is easily tuned to suit the rider. SRAM's NX 12 speed groupset is wide ranging so you can get up the steepest of climbs yet has great chain retention and reliability for care-free riding. Included as standard on the Top Fuel 8 is a 150mm dropper post and a selection of great Bontrager finishing kit. It's all well made and the wide bars and short stem are in keeping with the excellent handling and capability of the chassis.
For marathon style riding, general trail riding or XC racing, the Top Fuel is right at home. It's a scalpel to the cleaver of Trek's bigger travel bikes like the Remedy, able to move fast to avoid obstacles rather than ploughng through them. For those who like to explore off road or who race 24 hours events and the like, the Top Fuel is a top choice.
