The Cutthroat Apex 1 was born from Salsa’s mission to create an endurance-race-winning bike that could podium on the toughest routes out there.
So what makes the Cutthroat perfectly designed for races like the Tour Divide? Take a look:
Carbon Frame And Fork
The Cutthroat Carbon V2 frame and fork provide a high-performance ride quality that translates to you going faster than ever. The lightweight material is easy to pedal up climbs while providing crucial stiffness in the areas that aid speed-boosting power transfer as well as added compliance in areas that prevent fatigue.
The SRAM Apex 1 is a killer 1x11 drivetrain that gives you all the gear range you need without weighing you down with a front derailleur. 1x drivetrains are the favorite or ultra endurance riders because there’s less to go wrong during a race, but with the quality of the Apex 1, you’ll be sailing smoothly.
Fast Off-Road Tires
Is it a mountain bike or a road bike? Well, it’s both! With 29-inch wheels and Teravail Sparwood 2.2” tires, you’ll get mountain bike off-road capability combined with gravel bike speed.
All-Weather Disc Brakes
The weather and road conditions can often take a turn for the worse during ultra-endurance races, so you’ll want brakes you can trust in every situation. The TRP-Spyre C hydraulic disc brakes with 160mm rotors will give you the control you need to push your limits.
Mounts On Mounts
It can’t be a bikepacking or ultra-endurance bike without plenty of mounts, and you might not find a bike with more frame and fork mounts than the Cutthroat. You’re free to get creative and attach the gear you need in the manner that makes the most sense for you.
