Top Fuel 8 fuses the lightweight efficiency of a cross country bike with the capability and forgiveness of a trail bike. It's quick, nimble, and dishes out serious fun on flow trails and techy descents alike, with a 120 mm RockShox fork, 115 mm of rear travel and a dropper post for getting low on the rough stuff. This bike is fully capable of shredding singletrack, racing gruelling endurance events and even holds its own on the XC course.
It's right for you if...
You’re looking for a do-it-all full suspension mountain bike that balances efficiency with capability. You want to rip rough trails, do a couple XC races and even test yourself with an endurance or stage race.
The tech you get
A lightweight Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame, 120 mm RockShox Recon RL fork with Motion Control damper, 115 mm of rear travel with a Fox Performance Float shock and a 1x12 SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain. Plus, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, TwistLoc dual remote suspension lockout, Bontrager Line Dropper and Tubeless Ready Bontrager Kovee Comp 23 wheels.
The final word
Top Fuel 8 is an efficient, capable and ridiculously fun short-travel full suspension trail bike. It's built to take on technical terrain, flowy XC courses and the demands of endurance mountain bike races.

It is a criminal offence to falsify the details on this form. We cannot inaccurately describe contents, claim a lower value or mark as a gift. Please do not ask, or expect us to do any of the above. For details of customs charges please consult with your own customs authorities for the latest rates.
All goods shipped to the USA & Canada are liable for import duty and taxes. This amount varies depending on the destination state and the type of goods ordered. There are many online duty calculators that can help you estimate what these charges will be. Alternatively please consult your local customs office or drop us an email.

This is the value of a shipment of merchandise, imported by one person on one day, that may be imported free of duties and taxes and without the need of a customs declaration.
Cycle to Work (Only Available In The UK)
Buying your bike, cycle clothing and accessories through the Cycle to Work scheme can save you up to 42% of the cost…that’s a huge saving! Further still, you pay nothing up front and can spread the cost of your new bike and/or kit in equal monthly instalments which is automatically deducted from your salary before income tax and National Insurance contributions.
“The cycle to work scheme is fantastic, saving you money whilst supporting a healthier lifestyle. Fresh air and physical activity are proven to improve health and mental well-being, and of course also helps to reduce our carbon footprint. Convert the time you lose commuting every day into exercise time.” Alistair Brownlee MBE
