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 9 is the top-end model in the X-Caliber family. It’s a fully race-ready cross-country mountain bike built with parts designed to compete. A RockShox Recon fork, a 1×12 Shimano XT/SLX drivetrain, and a wide-range cassette make it a great choice for fast singletrack riders who want a great bike that’s ready to race right out of the box.
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 aluminium frame, a RockShox Recon Gold 100mm suspension air fork, a Shimano XT/SLX 1×12 drivetrain with a wide range of gears for easier climbing. Plus, tubeless-ready wheels with wider Boost141 hubs for increased wheel strength and better tyre clearance, and a dropper post for getting low on descents.
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.
