Trek X-Caliber 2021

The everyday cross country race bike is back in stock with new colours and tech upgrades…

Mile crusher

X-Caliber is Dr Jekyll to Trek Roscoe’s Mr Hyde and a direct upgrade from the super-popular Marlin. It is a more subtle beast than the Roscoe, more delicately balanced but still robust – it’s a quicker steering machine with swifter rolling tyres. Add in a lightweight frame with great components and you have a recipe for a brilliantly fun mountain bike. 100mm fork and 29″ wheels make X-Caliber for someone who wants to put in miles on the canal or across rolling hills… but still take a detour through the ‘thrills and spills’ section of the trail centres. It is a proper all-rounder.

So just how versatile this bike is is down to you. You’ll need to be a willing rider to explore its capabilities on lanes, trails, pavements and canal paths. And every effort you put in it will reward you back with dependability and durability … just never forget that its bloodline has the Roscoe in it too! It too is a bit of an animal when pushed…
