It's right for you if...
You're serious about your XC riding. When you're not racing for the podium, you're ripping singletrack and conquering big climbs on the daily. And when you ride, you ride far—so you want a quality spec and superlight carbon frame with IsoSpeed to take the edge off fatiguing terrain so you can stay stronger longer.
The tech you get
A superlight SL OCLV Carbon frame with Control Freak internal cable routing and trail-smoothing IsoSpeed, a RockShox SID RL fork with a remote lockout, a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, Stylo carbon crank, lightweight SRAM Level TLM hydraulic dic brakes, and Bontrager Kovee Elite Carbon wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive rear hub for fast engagement and quick acceleration.
The final word
This bike wins races. It has the lightest XC frame we make, with parts chosen for their light weight and performance on singletrack. Procaliber 9.8 SL is a worthy choice for XC riders set on breaking PRs and riding faster than anyone else in sight.
