Supercaliber SLR 9.8 GX AXS is an ultralight carbon CX 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 layup that gives you all the stiffness you crave, and none of the weight.

It's all topped off with carbon wheels, a carbon cockpit, and SRAM's wireless GX AXS Transmission.
