2023 Salsa Journeyer GRX 810 650B
Cutthroat C GRX 810 2x is an immensely capable carbon bikepacking bike, designed and built to be a tour de force on the Tour Divide. Cutthroat's lightweight carbon frame with Class 5™ VRS offers a finely tuned blend of stiffness for pedaling efficiency and compliance for all-day comfort. Cutthroat's drop-bar mountain bike geometry is stable when picking your way down steep, loose descents but aggressive enough for enduring a full day of headwinds. Ample cargo mounts add versatility to the way you pack. Shimano's refined GRX 810 2x drivetrain delivers effortless shifting and braking and a wide gear range so you can focus on the view.
Cutthroat Carbon ForkWith trail-taming compliance and abrasion-resistant plates in high-wear areas, the Cutthroat Carbon fork is designed for the rigors of rides that cover multiple road surfaces in unpredictable conditions
Class 5 VRSThe Class 5™ Vibration Reduction System revolves around seatstays with a tall, thin, vertically-oriented profile that promotes vertical compliance by allowing the seatstays to "flex" outwards on impacts. Horizontally-oriented chainstays work to resist torque and maintain a laterally stiff rear end. The lack of seatstay and chainstay bridges allows the full length of the stays to contribute to flexibility. A rear thru-axle delivers precise tracking while allowing the seatstays to provide incredible compliance
Interior Junction Control Molding TechnologyWe use interior molds at all of 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
Cutthroat GeometryOur drop bar mountain bike geometry features a 69° head tube angle for a long wheelbase that provides supreme stability over long days on any surface. 445 mm chainstays with Class 5 VRS will get you through everything from remote two-track gravel roads to technical singletrack trails, with the efficiency and comfort that endurance riders need to keep at it day after day. Cutthroat is designed for optimized fit with the Salsa Cowchipper or Woodchipper Bars
Tour Divide-Inspired FeaturesDesigned for maximum frame bag volume on every size. Stay hydrated with room for three bottles on 54-60 cm frames (two bottles on 52 cm frames). The top tube bag mount makes mid-ride refueling easy, and the two Three-Pack mounts on the fork offer extra capacity for gear or water. The Cutthroat carbon fork has internal wire routing for dynamo hub lighting systems. Abrasion-resistant plates reduce frame and fork wear cause by mud and debris
Massive Tire and Mud ClearanceFits 29 x 2.4" tires, plus the mud you are likely to encounter in multi-day endurance races (and abrasion-resistant plates on the fork minimize the damage that mud can cause)
Road Boost Drivetrain2x mechanical-compatible using Race Face mountain boost cranks and Easton direct-mount chainrings (max 50/34t, complete bikes ship with 46/30t) and a road drivetrain in all other areas
Cutthroat Direct-Mount Frame PackThis pack mounts to the frame via thumb screws for tool-free attachment and removal. This also creates a streamlined look and prevents wear from strap rub. Made from waterproof fabrics and water-resistant construction, the Cutthroat Direct-Mount Frame Pack comes in five sizes to match Cutthroat frame sizing perfectly
