Trek Procaliber 9.6 Mountain Bike 2020 [Review]

The Procaliber 9.6 is a trail bike fit for an all-round enjoyable mountain biking experience. It is made up of lightweight carbon frame technology that facilitates top speed performance. The biker takes on rough terrains without getting tired easily with the excellent vibration absorbing fork. A hydraulic disc braking system and tubeless tires give it sufficient responsiveness, stopping power, and good traction. Smooth gear shifting ensures easy ascents and descents.


Lightweight carbonized frame

The body structure of the Procaliber 9.6 is built from highly reliable OCLV Carbon. It is very light, helping the biker to travel at optimal acceleration levels, cope with day-to-day trail biking, and terrific reaction in tight alcoves. The frame is very easy to preserve. Merged as components of the frame are rack and fender props, which makes the packing of necessary items easy.

IsoSpeed Fork

With the anticipated rigors of off-trail biking, a good bike fork is very of paramount importance. This bike does not flunk in this respect. It is equipped with an IsoSpeed decoupling fork that soaks up all shock impacts on rough bike paths. As a result, a biker does not feel the quick onset of hand muscle weariness. It also gives biker more resilience and more composure. So, better performance on difficult landscapes is ascertained.

Tubeless tires

Procaliber 9.6 is furnished with tubeless-ready tires and rims. This is a confirmation that the tires are sufficiently worked out to bear with the varied terrains met during cliff rides. They provide considerable ground traction, resistant to sudden punctures, and are extremely light. The weightlessness and grip guarantee great bike control, body balance, and acceleration. The hydraulic disc brakes also complement the tires, by delivering adequate stopping capacity.
