The E-Caliber 9.9 XX1 AXS is one of the very few e-mountain bikes with a super sporty orientation. With just 120 mm of suspension travel at the fork, it underlines its ambitions for racing. The exclusive rear suspension comes from the successful race fully without motor. With it, Jolanda Neff has even become an Olympic champion. For use on more rough trails, Trek has other models in its product range for this purpose.
At steep sections, the somewhat weak FAZUA motor requires a lot of initiative from the biker. The FAZUA Evation Ride 50 Trail gives off a well-rounded riding feeling. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the E-Caliber 9.9 XX1 AXS , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the E-Caliber 9.9 XX1 AXS in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (13000) .

The suspension travel at the fork qualifies the E-Caliber 9.9 XX1 AXS for only touring on paved paths and gentle trails. In this area of use, the Rock Shox chassis works quite well. Bad brakes reduce the riding pleasure. Fortunately, this is not the case with the E-Caliber 9.9 XX1 AXS. With their four pistons and 2 disc brakes the SRAM brake brakes good. The components and the gears are less in the spotlight with an EMTB than with bikes without motor. Nevertheless, when we take a look we find out that here, good components are always used. The moderate head tube angle provides a good compromise between stability and agility when going downhill. The reach is also right there in the middle ground. The low bottom bracket height will likely be a sticking point for trail riders, as it negatively affects handling. Due to the short chainstays and the shallow seat angle , when climbing steep sections, it requires active weight shifting to prevent the front wheel from lifting. With its slim weight, the E-Caliber 9.9 XX1 AXS is one of the lightest EMTBs. An e-mountain bike is most fun when it can be ridden on a single track like a bike without a motor. The combination of good weight and pleasant geometry give the E-Caliber 9.9 XX1 AXS the same natural and nimble handling as you know from non-motorised mountain bikes. Really only a few manufacturers manage to get this right.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Trek E-Caliber 9.9 XX1 AXS

Overall, an excellent handling, a good chassis and a good brake system speak a clear language. The E-Caliber 9.9 XX1 AXS is a good bike with a high fun factor for downhill rides. Only a low travel mar the overall picture. The proud price of 13099 € requires a fat wallet unfortunately. The warranty of 25 years proves that Trek has a lot of trust in its products.
