If adventure is a creative endeavor, the Salsa Fargo is your muse. With a blend of touring comfort and off-road capability, Fargo lives outside the lines of categorization and urges you to take the scenic route and have fun along the way. On this Fargo Rival 1, you get traction-dripping 3-inch WTB tires on 50mm Sun Ringle Duroc rims, along with the ability to change to either 29er or 29+ as your needs change. The SRAM 1x11 drivetrain pairs a Rival rear derailleur with Apex shifter to provide ample gearing for loaded backcountry trips, while a pair of Apex hydraulic disc brakes deliver outstanding control and ruthless power, especially when you're in the flared drops of the Salsa Woodchipper handlebar. A rugged and smooth-cruising chromoly frame is eager to explore all types of surfaces, and the burly Firestarter carbon fork is strong, stable, and lightweight, slicing deftly through corners even with gear attached to the 3-pack mounts on its legs. Upholding the Fargo's touring cred is an abundance of mounting points everywhere, so you can pack as you please. In addition to the fork’s three-pack mounts, attachment points can be found for front and rear racks and fenders, along with three sets of bottle cage mounts on the front triangle. Adventure awaits, and the Fargo is ready to go far.
The Salsa Timberjack is a hardtail mountain bike that’s equally at home pushing the limits on singletrack or bikepacking to places you’ve yet to discover. Timberjack features modern trail bike geometry, short chainstays for nimble scrambling, and clearance for either 29-inch or plus-size 27.5-inch tires. Timberjack SLX 27.5+ is a perfect companion for off-road exploration. The aluminum frame, Rockshox Recon RL fork, and 27.5+ wheels paired with front- and rear-specific 2.8-inch WTB tires let you ride the trail longer and harder with less fatigue and more fun. Its Shimano SLX 1x11 drivetrain cranks up inclines like they’re nothing, and still has the gear-inches to rip down fire roads or go flat-out on straight sections of trail. Fortunately, you’ll have a powerful pair of Shimano hydraulic brakes at your disposal to easily tame that speed when necessary, so let it rip.

The ECR is Surly's answer to those times when you just need to escape to the woods for a while to get away from the humdrum of life. Those familiar with this steel mule know it’s designed around plus tires, previously of the 29” variety. A fully loaded 29+ bike is an excellent way to explore and get away for a while… if you’re of a certain stature that is. For smaller riders, it poses several challenges though. And no one wants new problems when they’re in the woods trying to escape old ones. To solve this, Surly redesigned the smaller sizes of the ECR to work with 27.5+ while the larger sizes are still equipped with 29+. All you medium specimens out there get your pick of the litter as Surly's offering that size in both options. Other updates to the ECR include and are limited to: Gnot-Boost rear spacing and a killer new beige paint job. It retains the abundant accessory mounts that we all know and love like Surly Trip Guide for brakes and derailleurs, fender, rack, and Bill/Ted eyelets, and a Rohloff torque arm slot. The 27.5+ sizes also feature two sets of Three-Pack bosses. You’ve got lots of options to bring all your “necessities” with you and still have room for excess baggage if you’ve got it.
The All-City Electric Queen was expressly made for maximum fun. Sitting squarely in the “trail” category it goes up almost as well as it comes back down. Short wheelbase, modern trail geometry, and plus size tire clearance makes this a non-stop dirt party no matter what terrain you’re tackling that day. Its whippy 612 chromoly frame with internal dropper post routing, boost spacing, and those short chainstays make berm-carving and wheelies second nature. A RockShox Reba fork delivers 120mm of travel so you can get after it and carry more speed through the fun stuff, while WTB Scraper wheels and 3-inch Ranger tires keep you on your line when you’re pushing the limits. Its SRAM NX 1x12 drivetrain delivers a significant gear range to tackle all brands of elevation change, and SRAM Level hydraulic brakes keep your Queen from abusing all that power. You’ll pilot this rad machine from the comfort of a cockpit outfitted by Salsa, All-City, and Promax, ensuring your ride is both Electric and worthy of frequent repetition.

If you show us a trail rider that says they couldn't use more traction, we'll show a trail rider that's never ridden our Fuse. We like to call it the ultimate trail hardtail, and with a 27.5+ tire system, this becomes more than just talk. Its 27.5 x 3.0" tires put out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. And to solidify itself as a sweet trail machine, this iteration of the Fuse places a focus on blending tough-as-nails durability with reliable performance. This meant spec'ing it with strong alloy rims, a bulletproof one-by drivetrain with plenty of hammering and climbing ability, and an SR Suntour fork with 120mm of travel. It has everything you need to ride harder and go faster, and nothing that you don't. - The frame features an A1 Premium Aluminum construction that provides an ideal blend of efficiency and durability. - An SR Suntour XCM32 6Fattie fork features stiff 32mm stanchions and up to 120mm of smooth travel. - Shimano Deore shifting kit is precise and damn tough, so it can face down rock gardens and rough trails while still providing accurate and reliable shifting.

Salsa's new Version 2.0 Alternator dropouts allow for some of the shortest chainstay lengths available, too, giving you quick and nimble or long and stable in one versatile frame. Whether you go single-speed or geared, rigid or suspended out front, or make use of the stealthy and integrated Alternator Rack/Rack-Lock systems for added carrying capacity via traditional racks and panniers, you can dream boldly knowing Mukluk won’t back down.

The venerable Karate Monkey. When it comes to mountain riding, this bike brings everything you need to the experience and more. It's shod with 27.5 x 3.00 terrain-clawing Dirt Wizards for max traction on singletrack thanks to an aggressive tread pattern and cushy, wide footprint. But there's more to this agile trail runner's set of shoes — thanks to generous frame clearance, you can drop a set of 29-inch wheels in with up to a 2.50-inch tire if you desire something with less bite and similar roll-over capabilities. And, with Surly's Gnot Boost rear dropout spacing, you can comfortably run any kind of mountain bike hub: 10 x 135mm QR, 12 x 142mm, or 12 x 148mm Boost will all work in the Karate Monkey frame. Wheel choices aside, Surly built the updated Karate Monkey with a nod toward modern trail-bike geometry and includes internal dropper post routing, two or three bottle mounts (depending on size), threaded fender eyelets, and all the braze-ons you've come to expect from Surly for attaching racks, cages, and bags galore. Running gear consists of SRAMS's rock-solid NX 1x11 drivetrain with full-length external housing and Level hydraulic disc brakes for reliability when you need it most. Throw on a 140mm suspension fork and this all-rounder turns into a serious trail slayer. For what seems like a simple bike at first glance, the Karate Monkey offers much, much more. Listen to the Monkey and lose yourself in its ways.
Don't worry, S-Works doesn't get to have all of the fun—the new Stumpjumper Comp Carbon 27.5 features the same frame with a full 11m carbon chassis and rear-end as its older brother, but with a solid list of no-fuss components, including a SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed groupset, for an everyman's budget. Our design goal for the new Stumpjumper was simple—build the ultimate trail bike, one that feels telepathic. And it turns out that this feeling all comes down to stiffness. Think of it this way: when the frame's telling your hands one thing and your feet another, your brain gets confused with the imbalance and the bike feels unstable. In order to fix this, we had to get to work on dialing-in the materials, shapes, and the layout. We started by creating our own mountain-specific stiffness test, and then we looked at the layout with Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to see where we could get the biggest stiffness improvements. This led to a big discovery: The Large and X-Large frames needed more front-end stiffness while the Smalls and Mediums were just fine. We were able to create a frame design that was 20% more efficient. And in the end, this proved to be one of the lightest trail frames on the market today. When designing the frame with the stiffness targets being a main goal, we developed a radical new sidearm design. The front-end and rear-end are connected at three points, and the sidearm helps keep all these points super stiff and connected, all while taking about 100 grams out of the rear-end. More explicitly, this minimizes frame flex when the rear suspension is active. We continued down the suspension path with a custom Rx Trail Tune on both the fork and rear shock. Suspension performance is highly dependent on frame, wheel, and rider size, so we use our Rx Tune to get each bike to land in the middle of the adjustment spectrum, and this gives you the biggest possible range to fine-tune your ride. Another focal point of the tune was matching the suspension characteristics between wheel sizes—we developed a specific Rx Tune for each platform. So, no matter what wheel size you prefer, you'll get perfectly linear suspension. Steps were also taken to make this bike easy to live with. Threaded bottom brackets make a triumphant return, and we made room for up to a 3.0" tire. You're also free to run whatever aftermarket rear shock you want since we're using standard metric shocks. We revamped the SWAT box, too, making it sleeker, lighter, and with more volume. And customization is furthered with a Flip Chip that lets you to dial-in your Stumpy to your riding style. Switch it from High to Low and it drops your bottom bracket 6mm and slackens the head tube by half-a-degree. Little details also jump out to surprise you, like a newly designed ribbed chainstay protector that makes chain slap a thing of the past and nearly silences the drivetrain. Lastly, we seriously couldn't make cable routing any easier on carbon models. Full tubes can be found throughout the carbon frame, so all you have to do is push the cable and it'll come out the other end. No more lazy loop, hidden stashes of magnets, pokey spokes, or pillows to cry in. The build on this Comp model comes with a list of components that deliver undeniable quality, like a 12-speed SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain, SRAM Guide R disc brakes, FOX front and rear suspension, and Roval Traverse 27.5 wheels. - The Stumpjumper's asymmetrical, FACT 11m carbon fiber construction is lightweight, stiff, and ready to take on the trail. It's built off our 27.5 Trail Geometry, so it's just the right amount of both capable and comfortable. And with SWAT integration in the down tube, a threaded BB, easy cable routing, and an all-new chain silencer, it's ready for anything the trail, or you, throw at it. - The FOX DPS Performance rear shock features our Rx Trail Tune, ensuring that no matter the wheel or frame size, your bike is dialed-in perfectly. - SRAM's 12-speed NX Eagle groupset features a wide gear range that delivers climbing and descending efficiency in spades.
