Fuel EXe 9.8 XT

Original price was: R160,000.00.Current price is: R129,600.00. INC VAT

The Fuel EXe 9.8 XT is a new breed of mountain bike that brings nearly invisible power to the trail in an e-package that’s compact and adapts to your riding. It’s fully loaded with a tiny-but-mighty TQ transmission that gives you assist when you need it but disappears for a true trail bike feel on descents. A carbon fibre frame keeps your ride light and responsive, and an upgraded RockShox suspension package pairs with Shimano XT shifting to finish the build with the perfect balance of performance and price.

Disclaimer (Warranties):
I understand that my bicycle needs to be built by an authorised dealer for the warranty to be valid and that it is best to practise for me to fit and inspect the bicycle in-store.
Disclaimer (Size):
I understand that some bicycles are ordered according to size. The size I have provided is my confirmed and correct size, and I will not request a refund should the size I have ordered be incorrect. It will be my responsibility to sell the bike before I order a new size.
Disclaimer (Online Orders):
I understand it is best practice to visit my local BSC to fit, order, collect and set-up my bicycle rather than opt for shipping.
