The Supercaliber SLR 9.8 XT is an ultra-light XC mountain bike that's ready to lay down rubber on race day. Its SLR Mountain Carbon frame is as light as it is meticulous, with a high modulus lay-up that gives you all the stiffness you crave, and none of the weight. XC courses get rowdier every year, so it's equipped with a 110 mm fork and 80 mm of IsoStrut rear suspension to smooth your roll without kicking pedalling efficiency to the wind. It's all topped off with carbon wheels, a carbon cockpit and Shimano's trail-trusted XT drivetrain.
Party laps are fun, but you're ready to race. You want a cross-country steed that sprints up climbs, hammers to the finish and feels good doing it thanks to 80 mm of IsoStrut rear suspension. From wheels to cockpit, you crave carbon and you want the most meticulous high-mod carbon lay-up we offer on a mountain bike.
A featherweight, high-modulus SLR OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with modern XC geometry. 110 mm of front suspension from a Fox Performance 34 step-cast fork with Float EVOL air spring, GRIP damper, dual remote lockout and 80 mm of IsoStrut rear suspension from a RockShox SIDLuxe shock. A Shimano XT 12-speed drivetrain, Bontrager Kovee Elite 30 carbon wheels, carbon Bontrager RSL Integrated bar/stem combo, Bontrager Line Dropper post and Shimano Deore XT M8100 hydraulic disc brakes.
The Supercaliber SLR 9.8 XT is bred for racing and comes from a pedigree of champions. You get our top carbon XC full-suspension frame dripping with carbon components and the trail-trusted reliability of Shimano's XT drivetrain.

- IsoStrut gives you tunable, damped suspension without missing out on efficiency for hammering up climbs at top speed

- Upgraded components, like Shimano's XT drivetrain and a step-cast Fox 34 fork, give you the advantage you want, where you want it
Nothing else like it
Supercaliber?s unique frame design ditches traditional suspension hardware so there?s less weight, less maintenance and less lateral flex. IsoStrut connects the mainframe to the pivot-less seat stays to offer about 80 mm of rear wheel travel. This design offers a unique blend of efficiency, traction and fatigue-fighting compliance that keeps racers fresh and in control.
IsoStrut integrated suspension gives you just enough travel to stay in control. It's fully tunable like a standard rear shock, but without the weight penalty of a full suspension bike.
SLR OCLV Mountain Carbon
Supercaliber SLR is the World Cup lightweight frame. It drops grams by using a higher modulous carbon fibre lay-up that allows us to use less material, plus we skip internal guide tubes for cable routing, minimising material and maximising weight savings.
Shimano XT is the original mountain bike groupset and trusted by generations of mountain bikers around the world. Whatever the trail, wherever you ride, XT is your solution for mountain biking today. Reliable shifting. Superior braking. Intuitive maintenance. XT is the high performance workhorse you can count on.
You almost forgot your pedals
This bike doesn?t come with pedals because you'll have a better ride if you choose your own. See the pedal guide to find the best pedals for your riding style. Want pedals built for the race? We recommend clipless MTB pedals for control and efficiency.
