Calibre Bikes release another addition to their bike lineup, it's called the Triple B and it's a re-work of the hugely popular Beastnut. The Triple B gets a longer fork, a slacker head angle, better brakes a bolt through rear end and is available now.
After immediately selling out of the limited edition Beastnut bikes in 2017, Calibre realised there was high demand for a permanent, higher spec'd Bossnut model. They quickly got to work and after months of thorough testing, they have introduced the Calibre Triple B which costs £1,399 with a Go Outdoors Discount card.
The extra cash gets you a bolt-through back end for increased stiffness, a longer travel, higher spec'd Rock Shox fork that slackens out the head angle to give you a more gravity focused ride, a dropper post and a pair of SRAM guide brakes. These upgrades make the Triple B the go-to full suspension bike in this price range.
A full spec list includes a SRAM NX drive train, those aforementioned Guide T brakes, Rock Shox Reba RL solo air 140mm fork, Monarch R shock, wider WTB i29 rims, an externally routed Trans X dropper post, Kore Durox 780mm bars and a 50mm stem.
Geometry wise, it's fairly similar to the Bossnut V2 and the Bossnut Evo with the changes coming into play due to the longer fork in use. The head angle is slacker at 66 degrees and the effective seat tube angle is slacker too at 73 degrees.
Calibre took the Triple B to Wales to show off its capability both in the big mountains and on technical bike park trails with Cadair Idris and Revolution Bike Park providing the goods. Here's the video:
The Triple B is available now from GO Outdoors with international shipping.
