Description

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 Judy Silver fork with remote lockout, a Shimano 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 Alpha Gold Aluminum frame, RockShox Judy Silver fork with remote lockout, Bontrager Kovee wheels, and Boost110 thru axle front hub all work together to give X-Caliber 9 exceptional handling. The Shimano XT/SLX 2x11 drivetrain has smaller jumps between gears and a clutch-equipped rear derailleur to reduce chain noise.

The final word

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.

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
- Front and rear Boost hub spacing opens the door for high-end wheel upgrades
- The 31.6mm seat tube gives you the option to install a dropper post when you want to tackle rowdier terrain
