Trek's Procailber finds the sweet spot between high performance and fantastic value for money. The OCLV carbon frame is backed by Trek's lifetime warranty and not only lowers frame weight but also provides stiffness that allows you to react to tight and technical turns on the trail. This hardtail cross country bike makes harsh and body beating surfaces a lot smoother through IsoSpeed technology which is unique to Trek. The decoupler is situated at the bottom of the seatpost and absorbs harsh impacts taking the discomfort away from your saddle and allowing for a much smoother ride. Tubeless-ready wheels and tyres included in the build make setting up without inner tubes a lot easier. Running tubeless removes the risk of pinch-flats when lowering tyre pressure so you benefit from greater comfort and a dramatically reduced risk of puncturing. Finally, hydraulic disc brakes ensure your safety is made a priority, making stopping on all surfaces and in all conditions as fast and efficient as it should be.
