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 Aluminium frame, RockShox Recon fork with beefy 32 mm stanchions and remote lockout, tapered head tube and Boost110 thru axle front hub all work together to give X-Caliber 9 exceptional handling. The Tubeless Ready tyres and wheels make it easy to ditch the tubes for a smoother ride with fewer flats and less weight, and the Shimano XT/SLX 2x11 drivetrain has smaller jumps between gears and a clutch-equipped rear derailleur to reduce chain noise.

The final word

The 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.

favorite_borderWhy you'll love it

  1. It's a great bike for someone who's just getting into serious racing – you get high-end XC parts on an incredible frame with enough cash left over for entry fees
  2. There's nothing as sweet as a silent ride: the clutch rear derailleur prevents chain slap, even in the rough
  3. Front and rear Boost hub spacing opens the door for high-end wheel upgrades
  4.  The 31.6 mm seat tube gives you the option to install a dropper post when you want to tackle rowdier terrain
