The objective of the Salsa Beargrease Carbon Deore 1x fat bike is simple: to keep you in the express lane wherever you're headed, whether that's racing on a singletrack or going on a bikepacking trip.

  • Features

    • High-modulus carbon fiber frame offers improved stiffness, better vibration damping, excellent durability and weight savings compared to other frame materials
    • Beargrease geometry features 445mm chainstays, longer front/center, short stems and wide bars to create room to move and add confidence while maneuvering on tight trails
    • Geometry results in a fat bike that rides like a trail bike; it's stable, steers well in loose conditions and still remains nimble and agile despite massive wheels and tires
    • A low bottom bracket height keeps your center of gravity low, making dabbing, dismounting and remounting easier
    • 27.5 x 4 in. wheel and tire size provides increased rollover, a longer contact patch and the flotation of a 5 in. tire without the added rolling resistance
    • Optimal drivetrain design with narrow Q-factor cranks creates less knee stress
    • Internal sleeved cable routing improves shifting performance in poor conditions, increases time between maintenance intervals and makes running new cables and housing easy
    • Compatible with 30.9mm dropper seatposts (not included) for true trail bike riding experiences and features stealth routing
    • Rear rack compatible; designed for use with the Salsa Alternator 170/177 rear rack, with the addition of a Salsa Rack-Lock seat collar (not included)
    • Multiple accessory frame mounts included; toptube bosses for Salsa EXP Series top-tube bag (sold separately), 1 accessory mount underneath downtube
    • 2 water bottle mounts inside frame triangle on SM to XL frame sizes; 1 water bottle mount inside frame triangle on XS frame size
    • Bearpaw carbon fork features a 150 x 15mm thru axle that boosts stiffness and improves steering precision; suspension fork compatible;
    • Fork also features Salsa's Three-Pack mounts for accessorizing with Anything Cages or water bottle cages
    • Multiple wheel and tire fit
    • Specs and images are subject to change
