Trek X-Caliber 7 Mountain Bike 2018

For 2018 Trek has kept the ethos of the X-Caliber, the same efficiency, simplicity and straight-up fun of an hardtail in 29er or 27.5". The Trek X-Caliber 7 is great for XC racing, or simply shredding single track.

At the heart of the bike is the character defining features such as shorter chainstays and Boost141 hub spacing for increased agility and clearance for wider tyre. There is also the updated geometry and an E2 tapered head tube for more confident handling and the sleek internal routing protects cables and accommodates dropper post upgrades.

The Trek X-Caliber 7 Mountain Bike like a number of the Trek Mountain bikes still maintain the smart wheel size, using 27.5 (650b) wheels on their smaller frames then moving to the faster rolling 29” wheels for the rest of the size range. Meaning you get the correct size wheel for your frame size, giving the perfect combination of responsiveness and control.

Conponents

The spec on the X-Caliber 7 is mainly Shimano’s excellent M3000 Acera groupset providing 18 crisp gear changes from the double chain set and 11-36 rear cassette.  Braking duties are taken care of by a set of Shimano M315 hydraulic disc brakes.

The X-Caliber’s Suspension fork is a Rockshox XC30 Coil fork with 100mm of travel with a lockout and rebound adjustment as well as having a 51mm offset, perfect for 29ers.

Trek have also recognised that owners of this bike may like to go and explore a little more going on longer rides so they have fitted rack mounts to fit a pannier so you can comfortably carry your equipment and enjoy your rides.
