Built specifically for the worst of conditions, the Salsa Stormchaser single-speed gravel bike is immune to shorn derailleurs and caked-on mud, and it offers a comfortable ride on unforgiving terrain.

  • Features

    • A lightweight, durable aluminum frame and carbon fork with added Class 5™ VRS (Vibration Reduction System) soak up microimpacts for a comfortable, compliant ride
    • Class 5 VRS features tall, thin, vertically oriented seatstays that subtly flex outward on impacts, promoting vertical compliance
    • The lack of seatstay and chainstay bridges allows the full length of the stays to contribute to compliance, while the rear thru axle ensures precise tracking
    • Horizontally oriented chainstays with Class 5 VRS resist pedaling torque to maintain a laterally stiff rear end with the efficiency and comfort endurance riders need
    • Stormchaser 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 on long rides
    • A low bottom bracket and stable wheelbase help keep the tires planted, while a long top tube and short stem increase stability at high speed and on rough descents
    • Equipped for wet weather with mud-resistant abrasion plates on the fork, extra tire clearance, internal cable routing and fender mounts
    • Alternator Flat-Mount dropouts provide 15mm fore/aft adjustability (435–450mm) for single-speed chain tensioning, wheelbase tweaks and extra mud clearance
    • Dropouts are also compatible with 1x drivetrains using a geared dropout plate (not included)
    • Extra-wide Cowchipper handlebar ensures added leverage when the going gets sloppy; width is relative to frame size, with 40mm bars on 49cm frames and 52cm bars on 61cm frames
    • Stormchaser fits 700c or 650b wheels with up to 50mm tires—choose the wheel size that best meets your needs, or set up a second wheelset to be ready for any ride
    • Comes with both a 17t and 18t cog installed so you can choose the one that's right for your ride, or even switch while you're in the field
    • With 40% more clearance than a Salsa Warbird (measured with a 700c x 42mm tire), Stormchaser offers plenty of space to account for mud accumulation
    • Generous water bottle capacity helps you stay hydrated: Fits 2–3 bottles inside main triangle, 1 under the down tube and 2 on the fork via Three-Pack mounts (not included)
    • 49–54.5cm frames fit 2 bottles inside the main triangle, while 56–61cm frames fit 3
    • Mid-blade mounts allow the attachment of the Salsa Down Under Low Rider rack (not included) for front pannier use
    • Down tube accessory mounts provide space for the Salsa Anything Bracket Mini, a Salsa KEG, or a fuel or water bottle (accessories not included)
    • Bolt your Salsa EXP Series top tube bag (not included) onto the integrated top tube bag-mounts for a secure connection and elimination of strap wear
    • Compatible with the Salsa Wanderlust rack when using the optional Salsa rack-lock seat collar (not included)
    • Stealth dropper post compatible—accepts 27.2mm dropper posts (not included) for more confident descending at high speeds on rough, unpredictable gravel roads
    • Pedals not included; specs and images are subject to change
