Trek Procaliber 6 2020 [Review]

The Procaliber 6 is the fastest and most hardtail bike any mountain rider could ever hope for because the bike is built for compliance, smooth and effective rides even in rough terrains and gallops that could throw off any other bike. The parts of the bike are exotic; an IsoSpeed which allows for the seat tube rotation, compliance and good pedaling, an Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame for strength and stiffness, and accurate wheel size for a better connection with the rider and tubeless-ready wheels for smooth rolls and control, good gears for smooth shifting and invisible cables for a clean look, and all these for an affordable price.

Features

Even on rough terrains, this bike with its frame is suited to make the ride smooth, reducing shocks and fatigue and hence increasing the rider’s comfort. The aluminum frame is light, thus the bike is fast providing transitions that are smooth, are durable and affordable.

Shimano MT400 Hydraulic Brakes

The brakes are balanced and easy when it comes to demonstrating their braking power and a professional when it comes to speed. The brakes are slim, comfortable, and suitable for smaller riders and beginners while requiring little pressure to get the full braking power of the brakes. They are high-performance brakes and are more efficient as they exceed a rider’s expectations, are not restricted by weather, require little maintenance, suitable for making exciting rides, and are durable.

Trail Bontrager Grips

This kind of grips renders the palms of the rider with control and comfort while keeping them in place. This lock-on is designed to prevent slipping and give the rider a firm hold on the grips boosting their confidence even while they tread on rough terrains. The grip is made of nylon and is a combination of thread and rubber that boosts the rider’s hold and guarantee dominance and compliance with the rider while enhancing security.

XR2 Bontrager Tires

These are racing tires that are suited for mountains because they are excellent in traction, cornering and rolling abilities while being light and consistent. The puncture protectedness makes for a great ride as it excels in loose and firm terrains while communicating with the rider with its cooperative parts that exert confidence. They are tubeless and ready to race with guaranteed efficiency in various terrains.
