Expirience with the Trek Supercaliber 9.8 GX

Trek Supercaliber 9.8 GX Review Half fully. Half Hardtail. With its special concept, the Supercaliber 9.8 GX floats between two worlds. Jolanda Neff's Olympic victory, which she clinched on a Supercaliber, shows that the minimalist approach works pretty damn well. With lean 10,5 kg, the Trek Racebike is among the lightest bikes in this category. The trend towards more high speed stability geometries stops with Trek. Good! Because with this balanced handling model, you are equipped for all situations on the trail. The combination of a long top tube and low stack value will make you sit sporty on the Supercaliber 9.8 GX. The guarantee of 25 years proves that Trek is behind its products.
