For most World Cup riders, nothing quite competes with the efficiency, lightweight and responsive handling of a hardtail. But choosing a hardtail typically comes with a compromise in comfort, which can drastically increase fatigue on longer and rougher racecourses. To address this compromise, Trek released the brand new Procaliber. Drawing on the IsoSpeed technology from the Domane and Boone models, the Procaliber features an IsoSpeed pivot on the seat tube. This significantly increases compliance and comfort, by isolating the saddle and seatpost from the rest of the frame. The result is one of the smoothest riding hardtails on the market, which maintains the efficiency and snappy responsiveness that XC racers crave.

Built with OCLV Mountain carbon fibre, the high-tech Procaliber frame weighs in at just 1050 grams. It features a raft of technical features, including an E2 tapered head tube with direct mount bearings, a full carbon PF92 bottom bracket, and the brilliant Control Freak internal cable routing system. Each Procaliber model gets a remote lockout suspension, and tubeless wheels, so they’re race-ready out of the box. Compared to race hardtails of old, the Procaliber is modernised with a slacker head tube angle and longer front centre that delivers greater stability on steep descents. But thanks to its short chainstays and low bottom bracket height, the Procaliberstays sharp on the trail, which is perfect for slicing and dicing twisty singletrack.
