Salsa's Horsethief XX1 is their any-trail, anywhere-in-the-world bike. If you like to experience new trails, this is your bike. Extremely capable and confidence inspiring, it handles big-mountain aggressive terrain with ease with its 120mm-travel Salsa heat-treated, shaped 6066-aluminum frame with active Split Pivot rear suspension. Combine that with a longer top tube so you can run the go-fast combo of a short stem and wide bars, and you have a demon descender. Components include a silky-smooth Fox F29 fork with tapered steerer and a Fox CTD shock, both with Kashima to soak up everything from braking bumps to huge compressions. SRAM's 11-speed XX1 drivetrain ensures race-ready shifting, and RockShox's Reverb seatpost delivers hydraulic seat height adjustability so you can rip up and down without pause. Stellar SRAM X0 Trail brakes, Stan's Arch EX wheels with wide Schwalbe Nobby Nic tires, a short Thomson stem and a nice Salsa bar and fine WTB seat round out the rest of the goodies.
