Albstadt bike check: Procaliber

Team setup for this weekend's World Cup

With every World Cup course comes the obvious question of ‘what is the best tool for the job’. Albstadt is one of the courses where the hardtail is a strong option for race day. Although riders make their final decision on race day, several of the XC squad have been practicing on the Trek Procaliber this week. Let’s take a look at the setup!

Regardless of bike choice, the dropper has become a must have on many courses.

Dropper controls on the left, with lockouts handy as well.

Riders get a grip with ESI.

MRP and Crankbrothers keep the drive train and contact points drama free.

XR3 has become a team favorite, and with mixed conditions likely on race day, a solid choice.

Be sure to catch the final choice on bike tomorrow as riders line up for the short track event. Catch it live on Red Bull TV!
