You're looking for a fast mountain bike for singletrack—one that's fully capable of taking on races, marathons, and competitive group rides. You want something that is reliable and fun with dependable, lightweight parts. A lightweight aluminum frame, a RockShox Judy SL 100mm suspension fork with a TurnKey lockout and an air spring that's lighter and more adjustable than a coil spring, tubeless ready wheels with Boost141 hub spacing, and a Shimano Deore 1x12 drivetrain with a wide-range cassette.
With X-Caliber 8, you're getting a performance frame paired with performance parts, like a RockShox air fork and 1x Shimano Deore drivetrain. Plus, it's equipped with durable, lightweight alloy rims that save weight and are easy to upgrade to tubeless.
Smart Wheel Size, the right wheel size paired with your frame size gives you the perfect combination of response and control
Internal dropper compatible, internal routing ports make it easy to add dropper post upgrade that lets you lower your saddle on the fly so its out of your way for tricky sections of trail
Suspension Lockout, locked suspension means your fork remains inactive, increasing pedaling efficiency. Perfect for extended road sections where efficiency is more important than bump absorption
Internal cable routing, we route shift cables and wires through the frame to lmake it look stylish, clean and simple
