Blackborow is Salsa’s "dream big" cargo fat bike, best paired with an unlimited imagination. The extended wheelbase and rear stays offer huge carrying capacity via abundant frame and fork braze-ons, supporting room for four full-sized panniers on the beautifully engineered rear rack. Top-shelf, double and triple-butted, heat-treated 6066-T6 aluminum tubing is used throughout the frame. Additionally, the tubing is strategically shaped and formed for additional stiffness and strength optimization in key stress areas. The front end is compatible with all our rigid fat bike forks and also fat-specific suspension forks. When Blackborow is sensibly loaded, the bike still feels well balanced and is a pleasure to ride on winding trails compared to other long-tail cargo bikes. Featuring carbon construction with an aluminum steerer, the Kingpin Fork is lightweight and durable, and features an amazing array of accessory bosses to maximize its capabilities: dual sets of Three-Pack bosses on each leg accept bottle cages or our Anything Cage accessories, lowrider mounts work with our Down Under front rack for a traditional touring setup, and internal dynamo hub wire routing keeps the front end clean for those upgrading to dyno hubs. Blackborow is compatible with 26 x 3.8–4.33" tires on up to 100mm rim, 27.5 x 3.25–4.0", or 29 x 2.3–3.0". The ability to run multiple wheel and tire sizes allows you to customize the experience and fine-tune the ride height as needed. A removable direct-mount front derailleur bracket allows for a clean 1x build, but it’s also compatible with 2x drivetrain setups. Plus, it’s got internal routing for a dropper post. Blackborow is all about new possibilities, and owners will find themselves able to merge an array of other interests into their two-wheeled adventures. Salsa's Blackborow GX includes an array of high-quality components to support the remotest excursions. SRAM's GX Eagle drivetrain features strong and lightweight components as well as a wide-range 12-speed cassette for tackling quickly varying terrain. A set of SUN Ringle Mulefut rims have a plenty-wide 80mm footing, perfect for floating the 45NRTH Dillinger 27.5 x 3.8" tires.

Our riding experiences on the Great Divide Mountain Biking Route have allowed us to develop a perfect Tour Divide bike that’s capable of much more.

An evolutionary leap in all-road bikes, Cutthroat lets you ride long, hard, and fast in comfort. The full-carbon frame delivers race-winning efficiency and offers Salsa’s Class 5 Vibration Reduction System to reduce energy-robbing trail chatter. Salsa added a RockShox Reba 100mm fork to reduce arm fatigue and expand the already capable Cutthroat’s gamut of performance. The WTB i23 rims and Maxxis Ikon tires fly on fire roads and stand up to hours-on-end punishment, all while keeping rolling resistance and rotating weight down so you can keep pushing. The Cutthroat’s SRAM Apex 1x11 drivetrain offers secure, streamlined efficiency with a wide gear range shifted by SRAM’s crisp DoubleTap shifting to maintain speed and momentum in widely variable terrain. And, Tektro Spyre C disc brakes deliver excellent stopping power with a lightweight design and quick field serviceability for emergency adjustments and repairs anywhere with minimal downtime.
You’re not committed to one style of riding—you’re just as likely to hit flow trails after work as you are to bikepack gnarly singletrack on the weekends. You like to keep your options open, and Horsethief SLX shares that philosophy. The Split Pivot rear suspension system increases pedaling and braking efficiency, while the 120mm-travel rear suspension and 140mm fork provide plenty of insurance for bold lines. Horsethief accommodates 29" or 27.5 plus wheels and a flip chip so you can fine-tune it to suit your riding style and favorite trails. To top it all off, the smooth-shifting Shimano SLX group and powerful, four-piston braking leave you with two fewer things to worry about in the world. Horsethief is a trail bike that keeps the good times rolling.

When gravel roads beckon, Warbird Carbon GRX 600 is a force to be reckoned with.

It’s the gravel bike for rides that go all day on all terrain. - High-modulus carbon frame with rear thru-axle dropouts and rear rack compatibility via Rack-Lock seat collar (sold separately) - Class 5 vibration reduction system dramatically increases comfort - Waxwing carbon fork featuring a 12 x 100mm thru-axle, Three-Pack and fender mounts, mid-blade eyelets, dynamo cable routing, and flat-mount brake standard - Full-frame internal cable routing for Di2 and mechanical brakes - Toptube bag mounts on all sizes, 3 bottle mounts on sizes 56cm and up - Clearance for 40mm-travel suspension forks and internal dropper post routing (1x set-ups only)
Mukluk rolls on 26 x 4.8" wheels and tires—this huge tire delivers massive traction, stability, and optimum flotation on soft surfaces such as ungroomed snow or loose sand. The frame is constructed of high-modulus carbon fiber, which offers improved stiffness, better vibration damping, excellent durability, and weight savings compared to other frame materials. Mukluk’s geometry works extremely well in all conditions, whether it be riding groomed singletrack at your local trail, exploring a beach coastline, or embarking across the wild frozen expanses of Alaska. At its core, we use the shortest chainstay possible with a headtube angle and fork offset that place the rider’s center of gravity further over the rear wheel. This location and combination of front and rear center is key to getting a fat bike that is stable, steers well in loose conditions, and feels nimble and agile despite the massive wheels and tires. A low bottom bracket is also key to keep the rider’s center of gravity low and to make dabbing, dismounting, and remounting easier. Additional features that increase Mukluk’s versatility include stealth dropper post routing, rear rack compatibility, and numerous accessory mounts: toptube bosses for a Salsa EXP Series Toptube Bag (sold separately), two water bottle mounts inside the front triangle, and one accessory mount underneath the downtube. It’s got full-length housing that improves shifting performance in poor conditions, and room for multiple wheel/tire combinations, allowing you to dial in your fit or the bike's performance to a specific terrain. Mukluk Carbon NX Eagle pairs our carbon frame with the Kingpin fork and a SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain to offer incredibly precise performance. SUN Ringle Mulfut SL 80 rims are wrapped in 45NRTH Dillinger 5 tires, for a voluminous combination that manages to keep the weight down, too. It’s a combination that is light and responsive when you demand the best of the best.
Beargrease is constructed with a high-modulus carbon fiber frame. This material offers improved stiffness, better vibration damping, excellent durability, and weight savings compared to other frame materials. Its carefully designed geometry results in a fat bike that rides like a trail bike—it’s stable, steers well in loose conditions, and remains nimble and agile despite the massive wheels and tires. A low bottom bracket height is also key, keeping the rider’s center of gravity low, and making dabbing, dismounting, and remounting easier. Beargrease rolls on 27.5 x 3.8" wheels and tires. For groomed snow or dirt, the increase in diameter provides increased rollover, a longer contact patch, and the flotation of a 5" tire without the added rolling resistance. It’s also compatible with 26" and 29" wheels for dialing in the fit or terrain-dependent performance. The Beargrease Carbon frame features fully sleeved internal cable routing. This improves shifting performance in poor conditions, increases time between maintenance intervals, and makes running new cables and housing a breeze. It’s designed for the best drivetrain performance while maintaining narrow fat bike crank arms for less knee stress, with rider-friendly narrow Q-Factor cranks, a 1x optimized frame design, and room for up to a 32t max chainring. Beargrease Carbon features numerous accessory mounts, including toptube bosses for a Salsa EXP Series Toptube Bag (sold separately), 1 – 2 water bottle mounts inside the frame triangle (depending on frame size), and an accessory mount underneath the downtube. Plus, it’s compatible with dropper seatposts for true trail bike riding experiences. Beargrease Carbon NX Eagle comes equipped with the Kingpin carbon fork and is designed around SRAM NX Eagle, a 1x12 drivetrain with the perfect blend of performance and affordability. It sports SRAM Guide T brakes that provide supreme control and braking modulation. The result is an incredible machine, with the gear range to take on any terrain.
