We couldn’t be happier to announce that Salsa Cycles has joined our growing line-up of epic adventure bikes. Whenever we discussed how we could add more depth and diversity to our range of gravel, all-road, and adventure bikes, the name at the top of everyone’s list was Salsa.
Salsa’s strapline sums them up perfectly: “Adventure by Bike”. They fundamentally believe that a sense of adventure makes life better – however you personally define adventure. Salsa view the bike as “a path to new places, new people, and amazing experiences”. And who are we to argue!
At a time when access to bikes is extremely limited, we’re really excited to already have two of the bikes in this range coming into store. The Warbird and Cutthroat are available to order now, and the Fargo and Warroad are coming soon.
Regarded by many as *the* original gravel racing bike, the latest version of the Warbird builds on everything Salsa have learned to offer you more of what the Warbird has always been about. Speed, long-distance comfort, all-terrain capability and control, together with the capacity to carry whatever you need to support your adventures. The ultimate gravel endurance racer.
“The Salsa Warbird remains one of the best gravel race bikes on sale. It is designed and equipped to carry you and all your gear from start to finish over chunky, rutted, muddy roads both quickly and comfortably.” – Bicycling.com
“If you are looking for a comfortable, ride-or-race-all-day gravel bike with scores of mounts and a legit gravel lineage, then the Warbird is hard to beat.” – VeloNews

Inspired originally by the Tour Divide race that traces the watershed running from Canada to the Mexican border, down the spine of the Rockies, the Salsa Cutthroat is the world’s leading adventure racing bike – in fact it launched the entire category of drop-barred MTB racing bikes. Blending the best of MTB and gravel bikes into a package that is able to handle truly challenging terrain at speed, fully loaded.
“…this bike is fast and doesn’t much care for going slow. Point this bike down a fire road and just put the pedal down and this bike gives so much back when you lean into it.” – The Radivist

The Salsa Fargo is legendary in the world of bikepacking, backwoods exploration and off-road touring. Built on a frameset that has deep MTB roots, but one that is designed for exploration and adventure rather than a quick blast around a trail centre, the Fargo will take you and your luggage through big country or across tough terrain, with the ability to roll quickly and efficiently as you explore the world.
“Overall, the Fargo is deﬁnitely something of an idiosyncratic beast. We see it as a high-mileage, all-condition touring machine, on which you can happily tackle bumpy bridleways and woodland singletrack, without lamenting the odd stretch of tarmac too.” – Bike Radar

“80% road, 20% whatever” is the unofficial motto of the Salsa Warroad. The carbon frameset is as light and responsive as you’d want in an endurance road machine, with plenty of compliance and capability for when the road runs out and you hit the dirt. Its endurance road geometry positions you for long-haul comfort, and extra frame and fork mounts help keep you supplied for all-day rides, whatever the surface.
“The Warroad is undoubtedly made of strong stuff, feeling doggedly unbendable despite my best efforts to generate any discernable flex.” – Cyclist
“I’ve tested a lot of fantastic gravel bikes this year. But the Salsa Warroad is one that really shines and will stick in my memory. It is an efficient long distance cruiser on the road, but also playful off the road.” – advntr.cc
