It's right for you if...

You want to ride what the pros ride and you want to win. You’re looking for a bike that's built for shocking speed and capability on even the hardest cross country courses, and comes decked out with light, fast upgrades on everything from the fork to the drivetrain.

The tech you get

An ultra-lightweight, full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with 60 mm of travel, a 100 mm FOX Performance 32 Step-Cast fork and Trek's exclusive IsoStrut FOX Performance shock designed specifically for Supercaliber. Plus, dual remote suspension lockout, a Shimano XT 1x12 drive train and Bontrager Kovee Pro 30 carbon wheels with 108-tooth Rapid Drive rear hub for fast engagement.

The final word

Supercaliber 9.8 is an efficient and capable cross-country race bike trimmed with an upgraded, high-performance parts spec. It's everything you love about a hardtail plus the added capability of IsoStrut – our exclusive integrated shock.

  1. Supercaliber is a World Cup-worthy bike that’s quick, capable of soaring through techy terrain and nearly as light as a hardtail
  2. Our exclusive IsoStrut shock provides tunable, damped suspension for a smooth and efficient ride
  3. Pivotless seat stays save on weight and actively bend to help soak up trail chatter
  4. Shimano XT delivers smooth, precise shifting with just a light touch of the lever
  5. Wider Kovee Pro 30 wheels provide better tyre support so you can run lower pressure and get more traction


Features

Nothing else like it

Nothing else like it

Supercaliber’s unique frame design ditches traditional suspension hardware so there’s less weight, less maintenance and less lateral flex. IsoStrut connects the mainframe to the pivot-less seat stays to offer about 60 mm of rear wheel travel. This design offers a unique blend of efficiency, traction and fatigue-fighting compliance that keeps racers fresh and in control.

IsoStrut

IsoStrut integrated suspension gives you just enough travel to stay in control. It's fully tunable like a standard rear shock, but without the weight penalty of a full suspension bike.

OCLV Mountain Carbon

OCLV Mountain Carbon

Trek's mountain-specific carbon is engineered to withstand the extreme demands of off-road racing. Advanced analysis allows our designers to create a frame with the best blend of light weight, responsiveness and just enough compliance in the seat stays to eliminate the need for a heavy rear pivot system.

Straight Shot downtube

Straight Shot downtube

Straight Shot downtube gives you an extra-stiff frame without adding any weight, so you can stick your line through the rough stuff and still fly up the next climb.

Knock Block

Knock Block has your frame's back when things go wrong. It prevents your handlebars from spinning all the way around in a crash, so your hoses won't get yanked and your controls won't hit the top tube.
