Red Zoom

Salsa’s iteration of modern geometry modifications is evident in their two new bikes – Spearfish and Horsethief. Slightly slacker, shorter in the rear, with a flip chip allowing riders to customize their ride’s geometry and even wheel size.

The unique factor in Spearfish lies in its split-pivot suspension design. Salsa has used it since 2010 and claims it addresses antisquat issues for improved pedaling peformance. The design separates acceleration and braking forces by way of a concentric dropout – a split pivot. Salsa also says the the design allows for tuning the shock exclusively to small bump compliance, which all but guarantees active and supportive suspension.

Salsa also has gone with a slightly wider 157mm hub spacing known as Super Boost, which has been around for some years in downhill bikes and is making inroads to standard trail bikes. This opens up the tire size options mentioned above allowing riders to have a through choice on bike setup.

Available in carbon mainframe with alloy rear in two build kits, Spearfish is ready to test ride today!
