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 1x12 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 straight out of the box.
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.
A lightweight aluminium frame, a RockShox Recon Gold RL100 mm suspension air fork and a Shimano XT/SLX 1x12 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 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.
