It’s right for you if…
You don’t want to ride trails, you want to fly across them—and you want a bike that can match you mile for mile through races and marathon singletrack sessions. You appreciate the performance advantage of carbon and want a superlight bike with race-level components and suspension.
The tech you get
An OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, a 1×12 SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain with an upgraded Truvativ Stylo carbon crank, wide carbon Bontrager Kovee Elite 30 wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive hub for fast engagement. You get 100mm of front and rear suspension with a RockShox SID RL fork and FOX shock, plus a TwistLoc dual remote suspension lockout, and a carbon bar and seatpost.
The final word
Light, fast, and efficient. The carbon frame, carbon components, and efficient XC suspension make Top Fuel 9.8 SL right for riders who want a rocket of a bike to tackle cross country racing and marathons.
