Trek's designed their high-performing Procailber to hit that sweet spot between top-end racing and riding experience and fantastic value for money. With Trek's OCLV carbon frame is, you're back for a lifetime with their warranty and so not only do you get a lighter overall frame weight but also offered a frame that's stiffness allows you to react to tight and technical aspects of the trails, allowing you to with more control. The Procaliber 9.6 hardtail cross country bike removes the nasty experience of harsh and upper body beating riding experience you'll know all too well with most hardtails and puts a focus on smoothing out the ride with Trek's unique IsoSpeed technology. The decoupler is situated at the bottom of the seat post 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. Pair the IsoSpeed with the carbon frame and you'll be tearing up the trails blissfully. Be able to run tubeless removes the risk of pinch-flats when lowering tyre pressure so you benefit from even greater comfort and a dramatically reduced risk of puncturing. Equipped with solid XC parts, you can rely on the 9.6 to ride efficiently not just on race day but throughout training sessions week in and week out. 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.
