X-Caliber 9 is the top-end model in the X-Caliber family. It's a fully race-ready cross-country mountain bike built with parts designed to compete. A RockShox Recon fork, a 1x12 Shimano XT/SLX drivetrain, and a wide-range cassette make it a great choice for fast singletrack riders who want a great bike that's ready to race right out of the box.

It's right for you if...

You measure your rides in speed and distance, and want a fast XC bike that will help you cover more trail in less time. You race, or you could see yourself getting into racing, so you want a hardtail with competition-level parts that can give you an advantage on the trail.

The tech you get

A lightweight aluminium frame, a RockShox Recon Gold 100mm suspension air fork, a Shimano XT/SLX 1x12 drivetrain with a wide range of gears for easier climbing. Plus, tubeless-ready wheels with wider Boost141 hubs for increased wheel strength and better tyre clearance, and a dropper post for getting low on descents.

The final word

The X-Caliber 9 is a speedy, nimble and efficient XC hardtail that's perfect for riders with a racing pedigree and anyone who dreams of covering epic distances out on the trail.

Why you'll love it

  1. It's a great bike for someone who's just getting into serious racing: you get high-end XC parts on an incredible frame with enough cash left over for entry fees
  2. There's nothing as sweet as a silent ride: the clutch rear derailleur prevents chain slap, even in the rough
  3. The frame is fully compatible with higher-end parts, like racing wheels, if you ever find the need to upgrade
  4. The 1x drivetrain delivers a wide range of gearing with the simplicity of a single shifter
