the Cale

Matt Black / Tan

A long-range mountain bike

"Triple cage mounts plus the ability to fit a rear rack mean it’s possible to ride into remote locations, drop the bags, and have some fun exploring new trails."

Introducing the Cale

A contemporary trail geometry featuring a long reach and moderate stack mean the Cale is easy on the long-haul, yet fun when the terrain kicks off. Using experience gained building our Beyond+ models, it’s a vehicle for exploring the most technical routes. An MRP Ribbon suspension fork stops the bike getting thrown about to increase control, a quality furthered by its huge 800mm wide bars. With the ability to slam the saddle out of the way courtesy of the KS E30i dropper seatpost, ultra-wide WTB Vigilante TCS tyres and a mountain-shrinking 10-50t cassette make this all the bike most riders will ever need.
