    Summary

    Expirience with the Trek Supercaliber SLR 9.8 XT Gen 2

    Trek Supercaliber SLR 9.8 XT Gen 2 Review The second generation of the Supercaliber addresses precisely the weak points of the first. The Supercaliber SLR 9.8 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. With lean 10,95 kg, the Trek Supercaliber SLR 9.8 is among the lightest bikes in this category. The handling of this bike is balanced. So its pretty intuitive to control on singletrails. The view of the geometry data clearly reveals: the Racebike von Trek has a sporty seating position. One should not forget: the geometry is the heart of a mountain bike. For 6499 Euro, Trek provides more than the competitors in the same price range. With 25 years warranty, you can not go wrong.
