The Trek Elite 9.8 is a cross-country racing bike designed to be handled like a sports car. It hosts a lightweight body with a TCT Carbon Frame that despite being lightweight and easy to handle, is still rigid and capable of absorbing excessive vibration from rough terrains; this is due in part to its 80mm or 100mm suspension fork. Included also are Race Lite Disc wheels that roll without effort and further make nasty terrain easier to handle. Note also the 9.8’s Shimano components: XT shifting, Bontrager bars, and a seatpost that help keep the ride comfortable, but powerful.
