Product Description

The Trek X-Caliber 9 2018 will get you hooked. It packs all of Trek’s XC race hardtail experience into a light, fast bike that pairs the right wheel size with each frame size.

Nothing beats the efficiency, simplicity and straight-up fun of an X-Cal hardtail in 29er or 27.5″. Great for XC racing, or simply shredding, the Trek X-Caliber 9 on a singletrack.

  • The all-new lightweight Alpha Gold Aluminium frame delivers a phenomenal ride quality
  • Shorter chainstays and Boost141 hub spacing for increased agility and clearance for wider tyres
  • Updated geometry and an E2 tapered head tube for more confident handling
  • The sleek internal routing protects cables and accommodates dropper post upgrades

Features of the Trek X-Caliber 9 2018

Alpha Silver Aluminium – Our proprietary aluminium is continuously cold extruded to a single thickness for a durable performance.

Rack mounts – Going for a long ride? Rack mounts make carrying accessories a breeze.

Suspension Lockout  – Locked suspension means your fork remains inactive, increasing pedalling efficiency. Perfect for extended road sections where efficiency is more important than bump absorption.

Extended Size Range – A wider range of sizes than the industry standard provides more options for everyone, from tallest to shortest and all those in between. Because everyone deserves a great ride.

Dropper Post Internal Routing – Don’t think you’re ready for a internally routed dropper seat post now but may consider one later? Select frames are equipped with the proper entry and exit points to accommodate internal routing for a stealth seat post
