Trek Second-Generation Supercaliber is available as of this weekend. This is news I’m particularly interested in because I own the first generation. That’s right, like my brown bike, the Supercaliber is a mountain bike I demoed and then ended up purchasing.
Read this post for the why.
A welcome change on the new Supercaliber is laser-etched sag indicators and a numbered rebound dial on the IsoStrut. Another update is 110mm up front and 80mm in the rear and both from RockShox. Trek adjusted the geo (longer reach and slacker angles) and now offers two layup choices: lightweight and super lightweight. Depending on the build kit, your Supercaliber will weigh in at 20.8 lbs, which is amazing. Pricing ranges from $4K to $11K.
Watch the intro video.
I can’t recommend this bike or the first version enough…if you’re into the type of riding this favors.
