The Fuel EXe 9.5 Deore is a new kind of e-mountain bike that bridges the divide between pedal-assist and traditional bikes. It features a carbon frame and a compact motor that keeps the ride light, lively and quiet. Get the benefit of pedal assist on long climbs, and the playful feel of a traditional mountain bike on descents. It's built up with a 150 mm RockShox Gold RL fork that makes quick work of rock gardens, and 140 mm of plush RockShox Deluxe Select+ rear suspension for a smooth ride and small bump compliance.
It's right for you if... You want a trail bike that's ready to ride everywhere, and gives you a little extra fuel on the ascents. You don't want to sacrifice the nimble feel of a traditional trail bike for a beefy motor, and prefer a refined assist that feels – and sounds – natural underneath you.
The tech you get An OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with a fully encased 360 Wh battery, and TQ harmonic pin ring transmission with a smart charging port, integrated LED display and discreet handlebar remote. 150 mm RockShox 35 Gold RL fork with DebonAir spring and Motion Control damper, and 140 mm RockShox Deluxe Select+ rear suspension. Plus, tubeless-ready wheels and tyres, and 12-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain.
TQ-HPR50 – small, quiet, mighty The TQ-HPR50 motor is super-efficient with an amazing power-to-weight ratio. Most motors use gears and belts that take up space and can make noise or break. The TQ-HPR50 uses a harmonic pin-ring drive transmission that’s small, ultra-quiet and unbelievably natural-feeling.
Range Extender Give yourself 40% more range with an optional 160 Wh external battery. It fits in a standard bottle cage and doesn’t require any complicated wiring or special mounts.
Removable battery The 360 Wh battery gives you power for 2-5 hours. It’s concealed in the downtube, but it’s still easy to remove for more convenient charging.
Active Braking Pivot Active Braking Pivot allows our engineers to tune how the suspension reacts to acceleration and braking forces independently. That means you get more confident control when you need it most.
Shimano Deore Shimano Deore brings even more adventure with a wider range of gear choices for the steep stuff, the fast stuff and the fun. With smooth riding, improved chain stability and sharp shifting, Deore heightens your mountain biking confidence and control so you can focus on the trail and enjoy the ride.
The final word The Fuel EXe 9.5 is a lively trail bike that gives you extra boost on the climbs, and feels like a traditional bike on descents. It's packed with space-age technology of a TQ harmonic pin ring transmission, plenty of buttery-smooth suspension to gobble up rocks and roots, and a workhorse drivetrain that won't quit on you.
