Introducing the new Trek Supercaliber XC bike as raced by the Trek Factory Racing team. The Supercaliber will be making its first appearance in this ride series and everyone will be assigned this bike for the ride.
There is nothing else like the Trek Supercaliber. This game-changing cross country mountain bike is fast, light, and smooth through the rough stuff. Combining the best of both worlds, the Supercaliber pairs the speed of a hardtail with the comfort of a full suspension bike.
You can spend your Drops in the Zwift Drop Shop to add the Supercaliber to your stable—so you’re ready to take on the dirt whenever you want.
When you listen in and complete the ride, you’ll unlock the super exclusive Adventure Stache Kit.
This kit will also be available to purchase from Voler.com and upon completion of the event, Zwifters will receive a discount, via email, as a thanks for joining the ride.
And finally, 8% of the kit sales will be donated to the Lowelife Respectable Citizens' Club (LRCC), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, that focuses on trail work in Southern California’s Angeles National Forest, fostering conservation, sustainability, & community in Los Angeles County.
