Built off of years of racing experience, the Salsa Warbird Carbon Apex 1 700 bike is a gravel race bike designed to provide smooth performance on the roughest surfaces.

  • Features

    • Class 5™ Vibration Reduction System promotes vertical compliance by allowing the seatstays to "flex" outwards on impact
    • Horizontally oriented chainstays work to resist torque and maintain a laterally stiff rear end
    • Seatstays and chainstays lack bridges, furthering the full length of the stays to contribute to flexibility
    • Rear thru-axle delivers precise tracking while allowing the seatstays to provide incredible compliance
    • Interior junction control molding technology is used during layup and curling, allowing for precise control of wall thickness and inner wall smoothness
    • This process increases compaction and reduces voids and wrinkles in critical high stress zones, resulting in a carbon frame that delivers consistent high performance
    • Warbird geometry places the rider in a position that can be maintained for hours on end over bumpy B-roads and loose surfaces, drastically reducing fatigue
    • Dual wheel compatibility fits up to 700c x 45mm or 650b x 2.1 wheels/tires
    • Salsa offers models with each spec so you can choose the wheel size that best meets your needs, or set up a second wheel set to optimize it for the race course at hand
    • Bolt on your Salsa EXP Series top tube bag (sold separately) onto the integrated top tube bag mount for a secure connection and elimination of strap wear
    • 2-3 bottle mounts inside main triangle (56cm and above receive 3); 1 accessory mount on underside of down tube, 2 bottle mounts possible on fork via 3-Pack mounts
    • Low bottom bracket and stable wheelbase help keep the tires planted; long top tubes, paired with short stems, provide increased stability at high speeds and on rough descents
    • Internal tubes guide cables through the frame, simplifying setup and maintenance
    • Refined drivetrain compatibility is designed to accept 1x, 2x, and current electronic offerings
    • Stealth dropper post compatible—accepts 27.2mm dropper posts for more confident descending at high speeds on rough, unpredictable gravel roads (not included)
    • Internal stealth routing when running 1x setups
    • Fenders mounts allow for longer, more pleasant rides in wet weather
    • Compatible with the Salsa Wanderlust rack (not included) when using the optional Salsa rack-lock seat collar (not included)
    • Pedals sold separately; specs and images are subject to change
