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.
Why you’ll love it
- It’s a great bike for someone who’s just getting into serious racing: you get high-end XC parts on an awesome 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.
- The frame is fully compatible with higher-end parts, like race wheels and a dropper post, if you ever find the need to upgrade.
- The 1x drivetrain delivers a wide range of gearing with the simplicity of a single shifter.
