Beargrease is Salsa's carbon hotrod fat bike, designed to convert strength and determination into speed. The super light chassis and the sure-footed rollover of 27.5 x 4 wheels and tires reinforce Beargrease’s objective; to keep you in the express lane wherever you’re headed. Point your front wheel towards the start line of a race on groomed snow or singletrack, challenge yourself on an overnight bikepacking trip, or just get your trail riding on. The Beargrease keeps things fast and grippy on a pair of Maxxis tires and Sun Ringle Mulefut rims. Shimano's Deore drivetrain components are a benchmark of reliability and easy use, no matter what the trail ahead looks like. Grab a fistful of SRAM's Level brakes and powerslide across the finish line in style.
Beargrease is constructed with a high-modulus carbon fiber frame. This material offers improved stiffness, better vibration damping, excellent durability, and weight savings compared to other frame materials. Its carefully designed geometry results in a fat bike that rides like a trail bike—it’s stable, steers well in loose conditions, and remains nimble and agile despite the massive wheels and tires. A low bottom bracket height is also key, keeping the rider’s center of gravity low, and making dabbing, dismounting, and remounting easier. Beargrease rolls on 27.5 x 3.8" wheels and tires. For groomed snow or dirt, the increase in diameter provides increased rollover, a longer contact patch, and the flotation of a 5" tire without the added rolling resistance. It’s also compatible with 26" and 29" wheels for dialing in the fit or terrain-dependent performance. The Beargrease Carbon frame features fully sleeved internal cable routing. This improves shifting performance in poor conditions, increases time between maintenance intervals, and makes running new cables and housing a breeze. It’s designed for the best drivetrain performance while maintaining narrow fat bike crank arms for less knee stress, with rider-friendly narrow Q-Factor cranks, a 1x optimized frame design, and room for up to a 32t max chainring. Beargrease Carbon features numerous accessory mounts, including toptube bosses for a Salsa EXP Series Toptube Bag (sold separately), 1 – 2 water bottle mounts inside the frame triangle (depending on frame size), and an accessory mount underneath the downtube. Plus, it’s compatible with dropper seatposts for true trail bike riding experiences. Beargrease Carbon SX Eagle delivers the same Beargrease carbon frame as its higher-priced siblings, but with the surefire performance of SRAM’s affordable SX Eagle 1 x 12 drivetrain. Rolling on SUN Ringle Mulefut wheels and 45NRTH Dillinger tires, with SRAM Level brakes and a dependable Salsa cockpit, this bike has everything you need to get your all-terrain adventure on.
Fargo is Salsa's original drop bar mountain bike. A bit of a cult classic, it’s designed for mixed surface riders and bikepackers who want the versatility to take any route and the capability to carry everything needed when they’re out for days on end. That’s why Fargo has a triple-butted Cobra Kai steel frame that is as forgiving as it is reliable on weeks-long expeditions. Its carbon Firestarter fork pairs nicely with the frame and offers bosses and mount points for anything you’d want to attach to a bicycle fork. The Fargo Apex 1 is built up with SRAM’s trustworthy 1x11-speed Apex drivetrain with the range to get you and your gear anywhere and the simplicity to purify your riding experience. That’s paired up with hydraulic Apex brakes that won’t shy away from any descent, so you needn’t, either. You're welcome to roll over nearly anything, thanks to the 29 x 2.6-inch Maxxis Ikons that deliver low rolling resistance, traction-on-demand, and a smooth ride. And, wide-angle Salsa Woodchipper bars offer the hand positions of a drop bar with the wide stance control of a mountain bar so you can keep fresh hauling yourself and your gear all day long and still get rad when conditions call for it.
