Make the trail yours with the Salsa Timberjack SLX 27.5+ bike. Nimble geometry, a suspension fork and high-traction 27.5 x 2.8 in. tires will get you up and over most anything you encounter out there.

  • Features

    • Proprietary, top-shelf double/triple-butted 6066-T6 aluminum main triangle with 6061-T6 chain/seatstays creates a light, responsive, durable frame with great trail feel
    • Timberjack geometry uses a longer top tube and shorter stem than other frames to put the rider in a confidence-inspiring position for off-road riding
    • Using the same stem length, offsets and angles on each frame size, Timberjack provides riders across the size range with a consistent front-end experience
    • Combining this consistent front end with super-short chainstays, as short as 420mm, makes the Timberjack an extremely agile trail bike
    • Large-volume 27.5 x 2.8 in. tires supply confidence-inspiring traction while also helping to smooth out the trail
    • Shimano SLX components provide flawless shifting so you can focus on the ride
    • Soak up the bumps and smooth out the trail with the 130mm travel RockShox® Recon RL suspension fork
    • Drop your saddle for steep descents and technical terrain with the included TranzX dropper seatpost; plus, the frame provides stealth cable routing
    • Alternator dropouts deliver incredible drivetrain versatility—run single-speed or geared, QR or thru-axle, freehub or Rohloff
    • Set the Alternator dropouts all the way forward for a shorter wheelbase and quick, nimble handling, or set them back for more stability
    • Full-length internal housing cable routing improves shifting performance in poor conditions and increases use time between maintenance intervals
    • X-Small and Small accept 2 bottle cages, while Medium, Large, and X-Large accept 3 bottle cages
    • Designed for use with the Salsa Alternator Standard rear rack; not included
    • Pedals not included
    • Specs and images are subject to change
