X-Caliber is a cross country hardtail mountain bike built for speed, efficiency and quick handling on singletrack trails. It’s great for new riders, XC racers and anyone who wants to cover a lot more trail in a lot less time. It’s a fully race-ready cross-country mountain bike built with parts designed to compete.
Built for speed
Every X-Caliber model features quick-handling geometry and parts chosen for XC racing, like fast-rolling tyres and front suspension that locks out for efficiency on climbs and sprints. Every model comes with a wide range of gears.
The Alpha Gold Aluminium frame has internal routing, which looks great and protects your cables from the elements. X-Caliber’s frame is light, stiff and features Boost141 rear hub spacing that allows for more tyre clearance and a stronger wheel.
The best fit for every rider
X-Caliber comes in seven frame sizes to suit any height, and Smart Wheel Size ensures that every rider gets the fastest wheel that fits. Larger sizes have bigger 29″ wheels and smaller sizes have more proportional 27.5″ wheels.
Ready for accessories
X-Caliber’s integrated rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to outfit your bike for any adventure, which really comes in handy if your mountain bike is also your commuter. The frame is also set up to accept an internally-routed dropper post.
X-Caliber 8 is a cross-country mountain bike made for fast laps and long days on the trail. It’s built with special attention to value and the parts that make the biggest difference in performance. A 1x SRAM drivetrain, RockShox fork, and hydraulic disc brakes make it a great choice for new mountain bikers and XC racers searching for fast, fun, singletrack adventure.
It’s right for you if…
You’re looking for a fast mountain bike for singletrack – one that’s fully capable of taking on races, marathons and competitive group rides. You want something that is reliable and fun with dependable, lightweight parts.
The tech you get
A lightweight Alpha Gold Aluminium frame, a RockShox 30 Silver 100 mm suspension fork with a lockout and an air spring that’s lighter and more adjustable than a coil spring, tubeless-ready wheels with Boost141 hub spacing and a smooth, efficient SRAM SX Eagle 1×12 drive train with a wide-range cassette.
The final word
With X-Caliber 8, you’re getting a performance frame paired with performance parts, like a RockShox air fork and 1x SRAM Eagle drivetrain. Plus, it’s equipped with durable, lightweight alloy rims that save weight and are easy to upgrade to tubeless.
Why you’ll love it
- It has the price of a more basic hardtail, but the parts and performance of a more expensive one
- The RockShox air fork has a rebound adjust and can be tuned to the rider’s weight, and it’s way higher quality than what you’d normally get on an MTB at this price
- The frame is fully compatible with higher-end parts, like race wheels and a dropper post, if you ever find the need to upgrade
- Smart Wheel Sizing means you’ll get the fastest wheel that fits (29˝ wheels on larger frames, 27.5˝ wheels on smaller frames)
- The 1x drive train delivers a wide range of gearing with the simplicity of a single shifter
