What happens when winter doesn't, y'know, cooperate? The trails are there, but they're not a winter wonderland just yet. There are plenty of fatbikes that will handle those conditions, but what if you want a bike that rides really well for "dry land" off-roading as well as snowy adventuring? The suspension-equipped Salsa Mukluk SUS GX 1 is ready for both!

 

The Salsa Mukluk is built around a hydroformed aluminum frame, producing a responsive feel in the twisities, as well as light weight for attacking hilly terrain. A slightly dropped top tube allows for easy dismounts in snowy conditions, while a tapered head tube improves handling in high-speed turns. The 121mm-wide press-fit bottom bracket keeps the pedals closer to the bike's centerline for a familiar feel. Salsa's adjustable Alternator dropouts can be changed to allow thru-axle or QR rear hub installation, while external cable routing makes tune-ups a snap. The overall geometry of the Mukluk is nimble and responsive, not ponderous like other entry-level fatbikes.

 

Singletrack (snow covered or not) can be rough and challenging. The air-adjustable RockShox Bluto suspension fork features 100mm of travel, helping you to keep the bike where you point it on rocky or icy surfaces. The Bluto's adjustable rebound gives the whole bike a more planted feel when traversing multiple roots or washboard surfaces. A 15mm thru-axle fork dropout adds an extra dash of torsional rigidity to the handling of the Mukluk, making handling more intuitive. An 11-speed SRAM GX rear shifter and SRAM GX1 rear derailleur bring lightning-quick operation and long service life to every shift. An 11-speed SRAM 11-42T cassette and alloy SRAM GX1 30T single-ring crankset boast a wide gearing range for tackling challenging trails, no matter what the season. The Mukluk's 26"x80mm alloy SUNringle Mulefut SL rims are tubeless-ready, and can take tires as wide as 4.6". Surly supplies the heavily-treaded 3.8" Nate tires, providing boatloads of grip on snow, dirt, mud and sand. SRAM's renowned Guide R hydraulic disc brakes use SRAM Centerline 180mm front/160mm rear rotors for effective stopping power and excellent lever feedback.

 

The Mukluk's "furniture" consists of WTB's Pure V Comp saddle and a rugged alloy 2-bolt Thomson Elite setback seatpost. Up front, you'll find a Thomson X4 alloy stem and a Salsa Salt Flat 2 handlebar.
