The Trek Supercaliber 2024 was introduced last season with significant updates such as its new frame and a new 80mm shock developed by RockShox. Now, this model has been updated with the new electronic suspensions RockShox Flight Attendant, but it has to be a special model that has not been released yet and is currently only used by the Trek Factory Racing team.

Vlad Dascalu's Trek Supercaliber 2024 with SID SL ULTIMATE FLIGHT ATTENDANT fork and RockShox SID Luxe ¿IsoStrut? FLIGHT ATTENDANT shock

A detailed look at Vlad Dascalu's Trek Supercaliber with Flight Attendant

Trek Factory Racing cyclist Vlad Dascalu was one of the first to test and compete with the new Flight Attendant suspensions before they were released to the market, but in his case with a special model as his Trek Supercaliber mounts a specific shock developed by RockShox exclusively for this bike.

RockShox developed this shock in collaboration with Trek and it is only compatible with this model, now updated with their electronic and intelligent technology

This is the RockShox Sid Luxe IsoStrut, referring to the original rear suspension system of this bike that eliminates a linkage to improve its balance between stiffness, weight, traction, and absorption, and the suspension brand had to adapt their Flight Attendant electronic system for this version.

It is equipped with the lightest fork from the Flight Attendant family, the SID SL 100/110mm

As explained during its presentation, Flight Attendant suspensions are not compatible with all mountain bikes, and RockShox released a chart specifying which bikes they could be mounted on. The Supercaliber 2024 was not listed, but judging by the images, it is only a matter of time before a Supercaliber option with this shock is released to the market.

It also features the complete SRAM AXS ecosystem with drivetrain, power meter, and included dropper post, making the bike cable-free
Vlad Dascalu has consistently ranked in the Top 10 of the UCI Ranking since entering the elite category in 2021 and is one of the favorites to win any race he competes in. His main goals for this season may include winning his first World Cup and securing a medal at the Paris Olympics
