X-Caliber 8 is a cross-country mountain bike made for fast laps and long days on the trail. It's built with special attention to value and the parts that make the biggest difference in performance. A 1x Shimano drivetrain, RockShox fork and hydraulic disc brakes make it a great choice for new mountain bikers and XC racers searching for fast, fun, singletrack adventure.

It's right for you if...

You're looking for a fast mountain bike for singletrack – one that's fully capable of taking on races, marathons and competitive group rides. You want something that is reliable and fun with dependable, lightweight parts.

The tech you get:

A lightweight aluminium frame, a RockShox Judy SL 100 mm suspension fork with a TurnKey lockout and an air spring that's lighter and more adjustable than a coil spring, tubeless-ready wheels with Boost141 hub spacing and a Shimano Deore 1x12 drivetrain with a wide-range cassette.

The final word:

With the X-Caliber 8, you're getting a performance frame paired with performance parts, like a RockShox air fork and 1x Shimano Deore drivetrain. Plus, it's equipped with durable, lightweight alloy rims that save weight and are easy to upgrade to tubeless.
