  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. Wider Kovee Elite 30 wheels provide better tyre support so you can run lower pressure and get more traction


Features

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

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 w/Knock Block

Trek's Straight Shot frame design optimises the stiffness-to-weight ratio for a more responsive ride. You'll be able to push harder and stay more planted on your line when the going gets rough.
