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 aluminum frame, a RockShox Judy SL 100 mm suspension fork with a TurnKey lockout and an air spring that's lighter and more adjustable than a coil spring, tubeless-ready wheels with Boost141 hub spacing and a Shimano Deore 1x12 drivetrain with a wide-range cassette.
The final word
With the X-Caliber 8, you're getting a performance frame paired with performance parts, like a RockShox air fork and 1x Shimano Deore 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 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 drivetrain delivers a wide range of gearing with the simplicity of a single shifter
