The 2020 Trek Supercaliber was no doubt developed for cross country racing. However, we’ve seen a few sprinkled in our Tour Divide Rig roundups, so folks are using them for ultra-endurance racing as well. The 2020 model features a new IsoStrut integrated rear shock, making it all the more interesting for bikepacking—think full-suspension with a full-sized frame bag. The Supercaliber is built around an ultra-lightweight, full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with pivotless seat stays and Trek’s exclusive IsoStrut Fox Performance shock to offer 60mm of travel. It also has dual remote suspension lockout is equipped with a lightweight Fox 100mm fork.
Trek offers several models ranging from $4,800 to $11,000. The mid-range $5,900 Trek Supercaliber 9.8 shown here is trimmed out with a 29 x 2.20″ tires, SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain, carbon cranks, wider Bontrager Kovee Elite 30 carbon wheels, a Bontrager carbon seatpost and handlebar, and a 54T quick engagement Rapid Drive rear hub.
