Salsa Horsethief Carbon X01

Salsa Horsethief Carbon X01


Go ahead, choose your trail. Salsa's Horsethief Carbon X01 is ready to take you for a ride. Salsa's much-loved Horsethief features a stiff, light, carbon construction, a tapered headtube, pressfit bottom bracket, full-length housing guides, and stealth dropper post routing to keep this bike at the top of its class. It tackles aggressive, big-mountain terrain with ease thanks to a plush 120mm of travel and active Split Pivot rear suspension. With its short chain stays, long top tube, short stem, and wide bars, this bike is a blast to ride down the trail, carving corners with precision. Components include a RockShox Pike BOOST fork and a RockShox Monarch shock to soak up the bumps in the back. A super snappy, go-fast SRAM X01 drivetrain ensures your shifting is spot on, and SRAM Guide RS hydraulic disc brakes bring the speed back down. SRAM Roam 40 wheels and grippy Schwalbe tires roll fast and hook up when things get loose. Plus, Salsa spec'd only the best, with their own Rustler carbon handlebars, Thomson stem, and a svelte WTB saddle.
