Made to be one of the most versatile trail bikes anyone's ever thrown a leg over, the Salsa Horsethief SX Eagle bike pushes through technical terrain and boosts confidence while you ride aggressively.

  • Features

    • 6066-T6 aluminum frame uses heat-treated double- and triple-butted tubing that's shaped for additional stiffness and strength in key areas
    • Modern trail bike fit has a short stem, wide handlebar and long effective top tube for more control and cockpit room for when things get rowdy
    • Super Boost 157 x 12 mm rear hub spacing combined with a standard width bottom bracket results in a 432 mm chainstay length to promote confident descending
    • A progressive leverage rate offers plenty of bottom-out performance at the end of the stroke, promoting confidence and control on bigger hits and a deeper feel to the travel
    • Soak up the trail with a 140 mm fork and 120 mm of Split Pivot® rear suspension
    • Split Pivot features a pivot in line with the rear axle that isolates pedaling and braking forces for more traction and control when climbing, descending or cornering
    • Metric shock standard requires lower air pressures, resulting in increased stiffness in rear triangle/rear suspension frame members and the ability to fine-tune ride quality
    • Anti-squat design is 1x specific and optimized around a 32-tooth chainring for better pedaling performance without the need to over-damp or lock out the rear shock
    • Comes with a 29 x 2.5 in. front wheel/tire and 29 x 2.4 in. rear wheel/tire combination, but can also fit 27.5 x 2.8–3.0 in. and 29 x 2.2–2.6 in.
    • Flip Chip technology integrated into the shock link mount allows quick adjustments to bottom bracket height and head tube angle based on terrain, wheel size and preference
    • Top tube accessory mounts bolt on your Salsa EXP Series top tube bag (not included) for a secure connection and elimination of strap wear
    • All sizes accommodate 2 full-size (26 fl. oz.) water bottles within the front triangle (bottles not included)
    • Internal tubes guide cable housing through the frame, simplifying setup and maintenance and creating a clean bike profile
    • Stealth dropper post routing compatible (fits 30.9 mm diameter posts); comes with a TranzX YSI05JL dropper post
    • Pedals not included; specs and images are subject to change
