Description

Whether you’re on a fast tour or just taking your time, the Salsa Vaya is an extremely versatile machine that’s at home on everything from picture perfect lanes to less than ideal byways. It’s a road adventure and light touring bike built around a vibration-damping Kung Fu chromoly steel frame and gravel-loving, thru-axle carbon fork with room for up to 50mm tires all around. Vaya's relaxed geometry provides comfort on any route, while rack and fender mounts provide options for cleanly carrying your necessities on a weekend of adventure. Avid BB7 mechanical disc brakes deliver reliable stopping power in wet conditions, while the SRAM Apex 2x10 drivetrain offers a formidable gear range capable of climbing mountain fire roads and rocketing through the valley below. And, when the narrow path through the woods lures your adventurous side, the Vaya's wide 700 x 40c WTB Nano tires let you explore with stability and confidence.
