Trek's X-Caliber rules the trails with its light, stiff Trek Gold aluminum frame with Gary Fisher G2 Geometry. It's quick and capable, and offers excellent climbing, descending and handling so you ride your favorite trails faster with the same effort. Leading the charge is a custom 100mm-travel RockShox Reba fork that soaks up the rough stuff. And, a SRAM/Shimano 3x10 drivetrain lets you steamroll over, across and down pretty much whatever Mother Nature puts in front of you. Plus, the X-Caliber boasts Bontrager's great tubeless-ready 29-inch wheels with meaty 2.2-inch tires, sure-stopping Avid discs and a host of legit Bontrager components

Trek's G2 Geometry (version 2 of Gary Fisher's Genesis Geometry) delivers the ultimate ride for every trail. Genesis earned rave reviews for awesome handling on climbs and descents thanks to a long top tube paired with a short stem that moves the front wheel forward for top-notch confidence and control, while short chainstays add phenomenal traction. G2 Geometry takes these handling traits to the next level by boosting control on tight singletrack and technical climbs, too. This is accomplished by increasing the amount of fork offset (reducing trail), which makes G2 bikes steer more quickly, and by shortening the reach, which puts more weight on the front wheel for even better control and confidence. The two animations above showcase how G2 Geometry provides the perfect ride.

First 29er. Intermediate experience. Commute to work 3/5 days per week (60% dirt, 40% street) totaling 30 miles per week. Durable, light feel, fast, remote lockout is useful when constantly changing between street/dirt during my commute. Brakes are a little noisy, the rear especially, but this is a fairly simple fix. Overall fantastic bike. Cant beat Trek quality, air fork, and awesome gearing.

    Comments:

    Basically its the only Trek mountain bike I have found that is specifically geared for climbing up steep terrain(22 front 36 back) with Trek Reba is a huge plus. X-Cal is basically the best climbing bike I have ever owned. I climb 60,000' a month and if your into that, I highly recommend this bike

    Comments:

    I gave my son my 11' Wahoo and upgraded to the 13 X-Cal. When you purchase something you often wonder would it be worth it to spend more money to get what you want......The answer is YES. Aesthetically the bikes look very similar, but they are night and day when it comes to performace.
