X-Caliber is a high-value cross country mountain bike that performs out of its class on singletrack and long XC rides. It has a lightweight aluminium frame, quality parts and more versatility than you can shake a spoke at. Whether you’re lining up at the local XC races or chasing daylight after work, this bike will give you speed and efficiency for your best days on the trail.
It's right for you if...
You measure your rides in speed and distance, and want a fast XC bike that will help you cover more trail in less time. You race, or you could see yourself getting into racing, so you want a hardtail with competition-level parts that can give you an advantage on the trail.
The tech you get
A lightweight Alpha Gold Aluminium frame with internal derailleur routing, a RockShox Judy Silver fork with 100 mm of travel and a TurnKey remote lockout, a Shimano XT/SLX 1x12 drive train and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes. Plus, Bontrager Kovee Tubeless Ready rims and internal dropper post routing make it easy to upgrade.
The final word
The X-Caliber 9 is a speedy, nimble and efficient XC hardtail that's perfect for riders with a racing pedigree and anyone who dreams of covering epic distances out on the trail.
- It's a great bike for someone who's just getting into serious racing: you get high-end XC parts on an incredible frame with enough cash left over for entry fees
- There's nothing as sweet as a silent ride: the clutch rear derailleur prevents chain slap, even in the rough
- Front and rear Boost hub spacing opens the door for high-end wheel upgrades
- The 31.6 mm seat tube gives you the option to install a dropper post when you want to tackle rowdier terrain
