It's right for you if...
You want to ride what the pros ride and you want to win. You’re looking for a bike that's built for shocking speed and capability on even the hardest cross country courses, and comes decked out with light, fast upgrades on everything from the fork to the SRAM AXS drivetrain.

The tech you get
An ultra-lightweight, full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with 60mm of travel, a 100mm RockShox SID SL fork, and Trek's exclusive IsoStrut FOX Performance shock designed specifically for Supercaliber. Plus, dual remote suspension lockout, a SRAM GX Eagle AXS wireless electronic 1x12 drivetrain with carbon cranks and a 10-52 cassette, and Bontrager Kovee Pro 30 carbon wheels with 108-tooth Rapid Drive rear hub for instant engagement.

The final word

- Our exclusive IsoStrut shock provides tunable, damped suspension for a smooth and efficient ride
- Pivotless seat stays save on weight and actively bend to help soak up trail chatter

Sizing & Tech

The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8?, for example, will fit on the same size bike. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local retailer.
