Salsa Rustler SLX

Salsa Rustler SLX
  • Color: Black


We designed Rustler SLX to make the most of every trail you ride. Playful geometry with 130mm of rear suspension travel coupled with a 150mm fork equips Rustler for big terrain, while the 6066-T6 aluminum frame features 425mm chainstays and 27.5-inch wheels for a quick-handling machine. The Split Pivot suspension system’s excellent pedaling efficiency and a flip chip for running tires from 2.3" to 2.8" wide make this more than a one-trick pony. Add Shimano’s perennial-favorite SLX drivetrain to the mix, and you’ve got a full-suspension trail bike that magically makes trails more fun.

Dropper posts

A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.

Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.

Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
