The Supercaliber SL 9.6 is a carbon cross-country mountain bike built for rocketing over singletrack and scorching the way to the finish line. It's built with a carbon frame that balances stiffness with compliance for power when you need it most, while IsoStrut rear suspension gives you just enough squish to soften the blow through the rough terrain peppering modern XC courses. It comes ready to rip with a 12-speed Shimano SLX drivetrain, so you've got a gear for every climb and breakaway.



It's right for you if...

You're looking for a cross-country race bike and want a little suspension to sweeten the ride. You want the benefits of a carbon frame and IsoStrut, and want workhorse components you can count on and upgrade over time.

 

The tech you get

An SL OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with modern XC geometry. 110 mm of front suspension from a RockShox Recon Gold RL fork with DebonAir spring and Motion Control damper and 80 mm of IsoStrut rear suspension from a RockShox SIDLuxe shock. A Shimano drivetrain with a blend of Dore and SLX components, OCLV Carbon handlebars and a Bontrager Line Dropper post. Plus, the reliable stopping power for Shimano hydraulic disc brakes.

 

The final word

If you're at home between the tape and want an XC steed that can keep up, the Supercaliber SL 9.6 is for you. It's bred for cross-country, with modern race geometry and just enough supple suspension to smooth out the rough stuff and keep you hammering until you cross the line.

Why you'll love it

  1. You get a 110 mm fork and 80 mm of IsoStrut rear suspension that partners with slacker, capable geometry for handling the roots and rocks of modern XC courses
  2. IsoStrut gives you tunable, damped suspension without missing out on efficiency for hammering up climbs at top speed
  3. The frame's SL OCLV Mountain Carbon gives you the vibration damping and stiff responsiveness of carbon with a smaller price tag
  4. Pivotless seat stays save on weight and actively bend to help soak up trail chatter
  5. The 12-speed Shimano drivetrain gives you a huge range of gears, so you can ease the ups in the big ring or stomp to the front in the flats
