Procaliber 9.6


  • OCLV Mountain Carbon: It is made up of OCLV mountain carbon which is a very unique material being tougher and lighter than other frames. This allows the bike to be very lightweight which reduces the overall weight of the bike – essential for racing. It’s tested by engineers and trained professionals for exceptional performance.
  • IsoSpeed Decoupler: This helps the seat to independently rotate from the stay junction and does not compromise on the efficiency of the pedaling.
  • Straight Shot Downtube: This gives you extra stiff frames while maintaining its lightweight appeal, as a result of which you can easily climb onto higher peaks without any issues.
  • Knock Block: This helps prevent your bike handle from spinning and reduces the chances of a crash. It helps you keep control so you don’t get imbalanced.

Video overview


This 2021 Procaliber 9.6 is my first new bike for a while. The bike replaced a super quick full XTR 2003 Trek Elite 9.8 OCLV which was epic, so it was always going to be a hard act to follow. I love the bike, it feels tight and quick, but elements of the 9.6 are a little challenging.

This is a fun bike. The shifter is excellent. I have been looking for a bike like this for a year. Issues. 1–Due to the COVID pandemic, these were hard to get. Apparently Trek prohibits the dealers to ship these. I drove 6 hrs one one + overnight stay in hotel to pick this up.

I ride mountain and asphalt roads in every session, a mixture. I’ve just bought this amazing bike and…ooh yeah, very high quality/reasonable price. It’s the perfect bike for me after more than 6 six years cycling.
