Warbird is our gravel race bike, designed to provide smooth performance on the roughest surfaces. It was built off years of experience racing in some of the nation's premier gravel events like the Almanzo 100, Dirty Kanza 200, and 340 mile Trans Iowa.

Features

  • Class 5 VRS

    The Class 5 Vibration Reduction System has specially shaped seatstays with a tall, thin, vertically oriented profile that promotes vertical compliance by allowing the seatstays to "flex" outwards on impacts. The horizontally oriented chainstays work to resist torque and maintain a laterally stiff rear end. The seatstays and chainstays lack bridges, furthering the full length of the stays to contribute to flexibility. And a rear thru-axle delivers precise tracking while allowing the seatstays to provide that incredible compliance

  • Interior Junction Control Molding Technology

    We use internal molds at all the main front triangle junctions during layup and curing. This allows for precise control of wall thickness and inner wall smoothness in these areas. This process increases compaction and reduces voids and wrinkles in critical high-stress zones. The end result is a top-quality carbon frame that delivers consistent high performance

  • Warbird Geometry

    Warbird features the latest evolution of our already industry-leading gravel racing geometry. Warbird places the rider in a position that can be maintained for hours on end over bumpy B-roads and loose surfaces, drastically reducing fatigue. A low bottom bracket and stable wheelbase help keep the tires planted and boost confidence. Long toptubes, paired with short stems, provide increased stability at high speed and on rough descents

  • Waxwing Deluxe Fork

    This full-carbon fork utilizes a 12 x 100mm thru-axle for true tracking and flat mount brake for quick setup. Most importantly, the fork includes an incredible array of accessory features:

    • Three-Pack mounts accept either water bottle cages or Anything Cages for increased hydration or gear carrying capacity
    • Mid-blade mounts allow the attachment of our Down Under Low Rider Rack for front pannier use
    • Internal Dynamo Hub Cable Routing means clean cable routing for those upgrading to dynamo front hubs
    • Fender mounts mean more pleasant riding in rainy weather, allowing you to tack on more training miles

  • 700c x 40mm Wheel/Tire Spec

    For faster acceleration and overall speed

  • Dual Wheel Size Compatible

    Warbird fits up to 700c x 45mm OR 650b x 2.0" wheels/tires. We offer models with each spec so you can choose the wheel size that best meets your needs, or set up a second wheel set so your Warbird is optimized for the race course at hand

  • Integrated Toptube Bag Mount

    Bolt on your Salsa EXP Series Toptube Bag for secure connection and elimination of strap wear

  • Generous Water Bottle Capacity

    Helps you stay hydrated during ultra-endurance training rides and races. 2-3 bottle mounts inside main triangle (56cm and above receive 3), 1 accessory mount on underside of downtube, 2 bottle mounts possible on fork via Three-Pack mounts

  • Internal Sleeved Cable Routing

    Internal tubes guide housing through the frame, simplifying setup and maintenance

  • Refined Drivetrain Compatibility

    Designed to accept 1x, 2x, and current electronic offerings

  • Stealth Dropper Post Compatible

    Accepts 27.2mm dropper posts when running 1x set ups for more confident descending at high speeds on rough, unpredictable gravel roads

  • Fender Mounts

    Fenders allow for longer, more pleasant rides in wet weather

  • Rear Rack Friendly

    Compatible with the Salsa Wanderlust Rack when using the optional Salsa Rack-Lock seat collar
