Product Details

2016/2017 Trek X-Caliber 8

Jump front wheel-first into the off-road world aboard Trek's X-Caliber 8. This sleek dirt-worthy bike starts with a lightweight Gold aluminum frame with Gary Fisher's proven G2 geometry. Complementing the sublime ride is a RockShox fork that gives you 100mm of travel to add even more cush and steering confidence to the big steamrolling wheels. Proven parts hang off the sweet frame and fork with tubeless-ready wheels with Shimano disc brakes. And, you also get the solid performance of SRAM shifting and the quality of Bontrager controls. And with Trek's Smart Wheel sizing, you're riding the fastest wheel size with the best possible fit. It all adds up to a ride more than ready for the off-road world!

    I like the bike so far. The seat is not so good. The bikes forks have eaten all the curbs and stumps I've come across. The people at Bike Barn in Atascocita let me try all the bikes in my price range and I finally zeroed in on the x caliber.

    I am 6 foot 3 and 250 pounds. I was looking for something that could handle a big dude. I have beat the snot out of it, and have done over 40 miles just this weekend. ( on some pretty rad Colorado trials) nice, smooth, and most importantly sturdy. I love this bike!

      Love my x cal 8!!! I ride this bike at least three times per week in single track courses and on the road. It has always handled everything I throw at it very well. It is pretty fast and agile but gets a little shaky around very tight sections. Good components for the dollar but I will be upgrading some of the drive train as stock parts start to wear out over time. Great bike :)

      I bought this bike and raced it in the 29 Mile Ore-to-Shore in Marquette, MI. Great bike and great race. The only issues I had were with the bottom bracket and front brake. The bottom bracket kept coming loose, even after multiple adjustments. It came loose again at the starting line of the Ore-to-Shore, but tightened on its own during the first mile of the race. It's been good since then. The front brake is noisy. I'll try a new disc.
