The Salsa Horsethief Carbon 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 highly capable RockShox Monarch RT3, and a Pike CR offers 130mm of gnar-slaying travel. The Horsethief rolls on fast 29er wheels and also accepts 27.5 Plus wheels for a playful, traction-loving ride. A SRAM GX 1x11-speed drivetrain takes the sting out of steep climbs with ample gearing and easy shifts, while the SRAM Guide R hydraulic disc brakes provide pinpoint stopping power for maximum control on fast descents. A RockShox Reverb dropper post paired with a WTB Volt Race saddle adds stability and convenience for getting low and crushing techy trails, too. Contact points are finished with a blend of Salsa's own proven backcountry set to create one bike for all your mountain adventures.
