Product Description

The Trek Procaliber 8 is right for you if…

You like the responsiveness of an aluminium frame, and would rather spend your money on better components than a full carbon frame. You want a ride that’s lightweight and responsive, with an IsoSpeed decoupler and carbon seatpost, so you can pedal over rough spots with comfort and ease.

The tech you get

A durable and light Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame with IsoSpeed, Shimano Deore XT/SLX 2×11 drivetrain, Race Face Next R carbon crank, Shimano M500 hydraulic disc brakes and an advanced RockShox Reba RL fork with Motion Control damper and a remote lockout. Plus, Boost 148/110 Duster Elite wheels and additional lightweight parts, like a Bontrager Pro OCLV Carbon seatpost and Montrose Comp saddle.

The final word

This is hands down the best aluminium hardtail we make. You’re getting Trek’s highest-grade Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame, the unique advantage of trail-smoothing IsoSpeed, a full-on race-worthy spec, a carbon crank and the kind of quality suspension that can hold its own on the World Cup XC circuit.

Why you’ll love it

  1. The IsoSpeed decoupler makes it ride smoother than any other hardtail, so your body doesn’t get beaten up by trail chatter
  2. You’re putting your money into the parts that make a big difference in performance: an advanced frame, carbon crank and quality RockShox suspension
  3. The carbon crank saves a lot of weight, and it’s super responsive when you’re putting the hammer down on a climb
  4. Ride the fastest wheel that fits with Smart Wheel Size
