X-Caliber 7 is the perfect entry point to fast cross-country riding and racing. It's a fully capable hardtail mountain bike with expert tech where it matters most, like in the lightweight and durable alloy frame, RockShox fork, Shimano drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes.
It's right for you if...
...you're new to mountain biking and want a high-value bike that's perfect for local XC trails and even racing. You want to invest in the parts that make a difference in performance – frame, suspension and brakes – and want a bike you won't immediately outgrow as your skills advance.
The tech you get
A lightweight Alpha Gold Aluminium frame, a RockShox 30 Silver 100mm suspension fork with a lockout, a dependable 2x9 Shimano drivetrain, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and wider Boost141 hubs for increased wheel strength and better tire clearance. This hub size is standard for higher-end wheel sets, making it easy to upgrade your wheels if you're looking for a fast way to increase performance.
The final word
X-Caliber 7 is a great cross-country mountain bike at great value. It has the same features found on higher-end bikes – like internal cable routing, dropper post compatibility, a tapered head tube and Boost hub spacing – all on a platform that's easy to upgrade down the line.
