Cross-country mountain bikes don't need to be ultra-pricy carbon fiber rocketships. In fact, they don't even need to be carbon fiber.

Trek's own Alpha Gold aluminum is used to make the "backbone" of the X-Caliber 9 cross-country mountain bike. Hydroformed tubes allow less material to be used while retaining plenty of strength needed for excellent pedaling response and handling. Lightness, torsional strength and durability are all built into the bike's frame, providing an excellent starting point for a high-performance masterpiece. The X-Caliber 9's G2 geometry ensures confident handling on twisty singletrack. Internal cable routing keeps the bike looking sleek, while a tapered head tube adds an extra dash of handling precision. A Boost141 rear dropout adds lateral strength to the rear triangle. 

An air-adjustable RockShox Judy Silver TK suspension fork helps keep the X-Caliber 9 where you point it. 100mm of travel and adjustable rebound allows the bike to soak up rock gardens and root "fun houses". A bar-mounted lockout lever allows the rider to shut off the fork when traversing fire roads or pavement. Cool, huh? A Boost110 thru-axle dropout improves handling further.

Shimano makes a strong argument for multiple chainrings with the drivetrain found on the X-Caliber 9. An 11-speed SLX shifter operates a Shadow+ XT rear derailleur and SLX front derailleur, making shifting second-nature. The "Shadow+" part of the rear derailleur is the new profile and clutch design that resists chain slap and crash damage. The SLX front derailleur features a pivot-style cage articulation, making hard shifts to the big ring easier than ever. The SLX 36/26T crankset boasts an ultra-rigid hollow spindle and hollow crank arms for low rotating weight. Out back, an 11-46T Shimano SLX cassette brings a massive gearing range to the X-Caliber 9, making out-of-the-saddle uphill charges that much easier. Rolling stock consists of tubeless-ready alloy Bontrager Kovee wheels with knobby 2.20" Bontrager XR2 tires, ensuring quick acceleration and boatloads of grip. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes bring exceptional braking performance to the X-Caliber 9 in all conditions, rain or shine. A Bontrager Arvada saddle sits atop an alloy Bontrager seatpost, while an accessory-ready alloy Bontrager Elite Blendr stem and alloy Bontrager handlebar complete this outstanding trail speedster.
