A tough, responsive gravity charger

The Trek Rail 9.8 XT eMTB is an electric mountain bike that comes with some exceptional talent. Its full carbon frame is responsive and light and incorporates the compact and light Gen 4 Bosch Performance CX motor with large 625Wh battery. The 2021 model also comes with the smart Bosch Kiox display, handily located on the top tube to protect it. 

This year's model has been specced with the super responsive 160mm RockShox ZEB Select+ forks which have extra burly 38mm stanchions, and in the rear is the RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate shock with an updated damper. Together these offer heaps of adjustability, plushness and stability when charging through rock gardens and taking on big drops. They also perform really when under hard braking on steep terrain so a great choice with the Shimano 4 piston brakes. 

The 2021 Rail 9.8 XT gets part of its name from having Shimano's M8100 12-speed drivetrain. It has been paired with a 34 tooth chainring and 10-51 cassette, so heaps of range, and has the E*thirteen crankset with slightly shorter 165mm cranks for extra pedal clearance when tackling technical terrain. A dropper seatpost completes the package.

An eMTB that looks great, rides tough, and is a heap of fun particularly if you want to tackle the bigger more technical terrain.
