Description

The Salsa Horsethief GX1 is a backcountry bandit on the hunt for epic singletrack. This full-suspension 29er features 120mm of Split Pivot suspension for impressive traction and pedaling efficiency, with supple cushioning over small bumps for outright speed. Rear suspension damping is provided by the excellent Fox Float DPS, and a Fox 34 Float 130mm fork lets you get aggressive with stable tracking and plush movement. The Horsethief rolls on fast 29er wheels and also accepts 27.5 Plus wheels for a playful, traction-loving ride. A 1x11 drivetrain takes the sting out of steep climbs with ample gearing, while the SRAM DB5 hydraulic disc brakes provide maximum control on fast descents. Finally, contact points are finished with a blend of Salsa's own proven backcountry set to create one bike for all your mountain adventures.
