Trek's X-Caliber is the way to jump headlong into the world of mountain biking. It sports Trek's nimble Gold Series aluminum frame and a plush 75mm-travel Suntour suspension fork for a light, lively ride and confidence over rocks, roots, potholes—you name it. And that confidence is only helped by the big 29-inch wheels and knobby tires. You'll enjoy easy pedaling and complete control thanks to the quick-shifting 24-speed drivetrain and sure-stopping mechanical-disc brakes. Plus, you'll love the comfy Bontrager seat.
Remember way back in the day when we called fat bikes "snow" bikes? Trek's Farley 8 has hit the mainstream and we could not be happier. There's nothing like ripping a fat bike over singletrack, regardless of the season. Roots, rocks, sand: they all disappear under you thanks to 3.8-inch tires and the 100mm-travel Bluto fork. And, yeah, the Farley is great in the white stuff, too. Trek's light aluminum frame is quick and nimble, and the tubeless-ready Jackalope wheels shed 4 pounds over other fat wheels, so you whip this thing around like it's nothing. The 1x11 SRAM drivetrain keeps it clean and gives you plenty of gears for serious adventure in literally any weather and Avid's disc brakes keep you always in total control. Now go get lost.
Marlin 7 is where race-worthy mountain bikes begin.
