    Summary

    Expirience with the Trek Supercaliber SL 9.7 Gen 2

    Trek Supercaliber SL 9.7 Gen 2 Review The second generation of the Supercaliber addresses precisely the weak points of the first. The Supercaliber SL 9.7 has a significantly more modern geometry than its predecessor. The frame is also almost 200 grams lighter. And there is 80 instead of 60 millimeters of suspension travel in the rear. Coupled with the 110 mm at the fork, the current race chassis from Jolanda Neff & Co becomes much more grown-up. When it comes to frame design and quantity of travel, the similarity to Specialized's Epic Worldcup is undeniable. However, the general concept of the rear suspension is completely different. The geometry is moderate and makes for a balanced handling. The seating position is sporty. Trek is installing only absolutely high-quality shifting components. The guarantee of 25 years proves that Trek is behind its products.
