Description

It's been said the mountain bike is an offshoot of a bicycling family tree that combines beneficial aspects from touring bikes, cruisers, and BMX. Naturally, new sects quickly sprouted from that first branch like freeride, trials, and its latest bud -- the fatbike. And, as the fatty rapidly grows, we're looking forward to new models like the speed-focused Salsa Beargrease.

The fat bike filled a niche for riding terrain that would normally stump traditional off-road bikes. In the past, greasy mud, loose sand, and fresh snow have stopped mountain bikes in their tracks. However, this all changed when fat bikes hit the market. Oversized rubber and utilitarian frames allowed venturesome souls to explore terrain once reserved for foot or motorized travel.

They've exploded in popularity due to this, even inspiring competition. From groomed snowmobile tracks, to Alaskan endurance epics, to bonfire-illuminated, beer-fueled short tracks, the fat bike has become a highly capable vessel for both exploration and racing alike. And for those who prefer to ride a light and nimble frame over a stout mule, Salsa has you covered with its new Beargrease.

It sports an Xtrolite tubeset with size-specific, double-butted, heat-treated EV6 aluminum that's optimized for strength and weight. The toptube and downtube are hydroformed to offer front triangle stiffness and optimal standover clearance. The rear stays get a similar treatment to enhance resistance to flex while offering ample room for riding with boots.

Because trail damping is handled by the large volume tires, Salsa focused on making the triangles as stiff and light as possible -- making it one of the most efficient fat bikes to date. Keeping that theme is an ultra-light 720 gram, aluminum fork with one-piece tapered steerer tube. The extensive use of aluminum in the fork and frame isn't just because of its inherent low weight and stiffness -- it's resistance to corrosion is another contributing factor for its application on the Beargrease.

For components, Salsa expertly balances race-ready performance with reliability. You'll find a SRAM 2x10 drivetrain consisting of an X0 rear derailleur, X7 front derailleur, and X7 shifters. For a crankset, Salsa specs an e.thirteen with custom 22/36T chain rings. They twist a PG-1050 11-36T cassette via a KMC 10-speed chain. Avid Elixir 5 disc brakes slow the Beargrease's wheels down.

The wheels are composed of Surly Holy Rolling Darryl rims wrapped in 45North Husker Du tires, laced with DT Competition spokes to Salsa hubs. Salsa's Pro Moto handlebar, seatpost, and stem keep weight low, while a WTB Pure V saddle keeps you supported on those longer rides.

The Salsa Beargrease comes in three sizes; Small through X-Large and one color; Blue/Black.
