Salsa’s Cutthroat is all about speed and comfort — full carbon frame and fork, Class 5 Vibration Reduction System, and racing-inspired geometry make for a quick bike that won’t leave you pummeled as you ride alongside a rising moon. The Cutthroat Apex 1 features a 1x11-speed drivetrain for a lightweight, wide gear range that is perfect for loaded climbing, while Hayes CX Expert mechanical disc brakes are easy to field-service and deliver ample power to control sketchy descents on variable surfaces. The Cutthroat accommodates multi-day packing needs with its extra-large front triangle for voluminous frame bags, hidden rear rack mounts, and room for 4 or 5 water bottles depending on frame size. Intelligent elements like internal dynamo cable routing in the fork and a top-tube bag direct mount add to the Cutthroat’s evolved design. And, with clearance for up to 2.4-inch tires along with all the mud you’re likely to encounter on your adventures, the Cutthroat's capability as an all-terrain pack horse that was born to run.
