How do you make Salsa's any-trail, anywhere Horsethief even better? Start by adding a hefty dose of carbon to lighten up the ride and increase pedaling stiffness and efficiency. Whether you're exploring new trails or heading to your favorite stomping grounds, this frame is the start of a fun, capable, go-anywhere machine. It handles big-mountain aggressive terrain with ease with its 120mm-travel Salsa carbon chassis with an active Split Pivot rear suspension. Combine that with a long top tube, short chainstays, and a short stem with wide bars, and you have a demon descender. Plus, you get the speed and roll-over-anything abilities of a 29er with slack angles and a low stance, so you'll absolutely devour challenging terrain. To get the most out its descending capabilities, the Horsethief is laterally stiff thanks to its 142 x 12mm rear axle and lack of pivots. It also features ISCG-05 chainguide tabs and a tapered head tube. For all-day riding in rugged terrain, steal a ride on the Horsethief!
