Procaliber 9.8 SL is a performance hardtail mountain bike for serious XC racers. It has an ultra-lightweight frame with our lightest SL OCLV Mountain Carbon layup, trail-smoothing IsoSpeed, and a host of pro-level performance parts, including carbon wheels, a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, and a lightweight RockShox SID RL fork. There's no getting around it: this bike was made to win.
It's right for you if...
You're serious about your XC riding. When you're not racing for the podium, you're ripping singletrack and conquering big climbs on the daily. And when you ride, you ride far—so you want a quality spec and superlight carbon frame with IsoSpeed to take the edge off fatiguing terrain so you can stay stronger longer.
The tech you get
A superlight SL OCLV Carbon frame with Control Freak internal cable routing and trail-smoothing IsoSpeed, a RockShox SID RL fork with an ultra-plush DebonAir spring, a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, Stylo Carbon Eagle crank, Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes, and Bontrager Kovee Elite 30 Tubeless Ready carbon wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive rear hub for fast engagement and quick acceleration.
The final word
This bike wins races. It has the lightest XC frame we make, with parts chosen for their light weight and performance on singletrack. Procaliber 9.8 SL is a worthy choice for XC riders set on breaking PRs and riding faster than anyone else in sight.
