The 4.5 Star MTB - Trek X-Caliber 7

It's the weekend...pop into the shop and pester the team about a Trek X-Caliber 7.

Just $899rrp

Trek X-Caliber 7

BikeRadar gives X-Caliber 7 four & half stars

"High quality build and proven handling at a modest price"
"The X-Caliber frame is no doubt the highlight of the package, made with Trek’s Alpha Gold aluminium. With heavily shaped and butted tubes, sparkling paint, an internally guided front derailleur cable and a fully housed rear derailleur cable, this frame would be befitting of bike twice its price."
Nothing beats the efficiency, simplicity, and straight-up fun of an X-Cal 29er hardtail. Great for XC racing, marathons, 24-hour racing, or simply shredding singletrack.
