The Trek X-Caliber 8 has the price of a more basic hardtail and the 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).
What do 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, Bontrager Kovee Tubeless Ready wheels with Boost141 hub spacing, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and a smooth, efficient SRAM SX Eagle 1×12 drivetrain with a wide-range cassette.
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.
