Salsa Cutthroat Bikes & Framesets

Bikes are meant
to be used.

Inspired by the Tour Divide, the Salsa Cutthroat feels right at home as an ultra-endurance bike on mixed surfaces. Since 2015, it’s been a part of the Salsa lineup. The latest models come with an even lighter frame, a more compliant ride, and Salsa’s Vibration Reduction System that soaks up small bumps and road vibrations. The Cutthroat is unique with its drop-bar MTB geometry, loads of cargo mounts, long fork, and wider tires, giving it a well-balanced, efficient ride for long-haul self-supported adventures.

With almost a decade under its belt, the Cutthroat continues to find its niche as one of the best bikepacking bikes. Current models include electronic wireless groupsets in the C XO1 Eagle AXS and C GX Eagle AXS and mechanical groupsets on the C GRX 810 2X and C GRX 600 1X. For a lightweight carbon adventure-ready bike that easily tackles distance and mixed terrain, look to the Cutthroat.
