: Procaliber 29 Series

User's rating

The hardtail concept is not dead. In fact, it’s quite the contrary – and Trek’s Procaliber is living proof. There’s something just so pure and unfettered about riding a bike like this; and a lot of that stems from the firmer ride quality, which provides a heightened sense of feel and detail from the underpinnings. And while this does sometimes translate into a firmer ride, the American-based company has fitted this bad boy with an IsoSpeed Decoupler – Trek talk for added compliance. For one-day races or even three-day events, where you want a fast, lightweight climbing bike that’s still appreciably controlled in the rougher downhill bits, the Trek Procaliber is the quintessential race weapon. –  By Aaron Borrill
