Faster, farther, more efficient-that's the ethos of Spearfish Carbon XT. The stiff, lightweight carbon frame translates more of your pedal power into propulsion, and the Split Pivot® suspension design provides supreme pedaling efficiency and traction. A Fox Float 34 SC Performance Elite Fit4 fork delivers 120 mm of front suspension travel to soak up the trail. A Fox Float DPS Performance Elite shock grants 100 mm of travel in the rear. Shimano's XT groupset puts consistent shifting and braking performance at your fingertips. Spearfish Carbon XT is the perfect choice when precision and speed are paramount.

Features

SPLIT PIVOT® REAR SUSPENSION SYSTEM

Split Pivot provides a host of impressive suspension characteristics because the system isolates pedaling forces and braking forces from each other, allowing us to tune and optimize the bike for both independently. The concentric rear axle pivot, in conjunction with precise wheel link, brake link, and control link placement, results in: Excellent bump compliance / Incredible pedaling efficiency / Smooth and predictable braking throughout travel / Maximum traction

PROGRESSIVE LEVERAGE RATE

The leverage rate is progressive and offers plenty of bottom out performance at the end of the stroke, promoting more confidence and control on bigger hits and a deeper feel to the travel. The beginning and mid-stroke remain relatively unchanged, providing extremely supple small bump compliance off the top for a smooth ride and consistent mid-travel support to help combat rider fatigue and maintain bike geometry. A slightly lower overall rate yields lower shock pressures making for easier and quicker initial setup 

CONSISTENT BRAKING TRACTION

The Split Pivot® suspension design allows us to isolate braking forces from the rest of the system. Braking effect on suspension is minimal and consistent throughout the suspension travel

EFFICIENT PEDALING

Spearfish’s Anti-squat design leads to better pedaling performance. This improved anti squat is partly the result of designing the bike to be 1x-specific and optimized around a 32-tooth chainring. The riding result is incredibly efficient pedaling without the need to over dampen the rear shock (thereby hindering small bump compliance) or necessitating the use of a lockout

METRIC SHOCK STANDARD

This shock standard brings a host of benefits: Increased stiffness in rear triangle/rear suspension frame members / Able to be fine-tuned for improved ride quality and personal preference

FLIP CHIP

Integrated into the shock link mount, the Flip Chip allows simple, quick adjustments to bottom bracket height/headtube angle to account for wheel size, tire diameter, terrain, or the rider’s personal preference

EPS CARBON MAIN TRIANGLE WITH CARBON SEATSTAY

EPS construction allows for precise manufacturing control, smooth surfacing, a simplified bottom bracket junction, and an integrated shock mount. Carbon fiber material offers improved stiffness, better vibration damping, excellent toughness and weight savings compared to other materials. 6066-T6 aluminum heat-treated chainstays add durability

SPEARFISH GEOMETRY

Spearfish is designed as a progressive XC bike for the rider focused on both climbing and descending with speed. It is based on the premise that precision and efficiency equal speed. While Spearfish has a renowned pedigree in ultra-endurance racing, those same attributes make it a great choice for weeknight laps at the local trail system or toeing the start line at the weekend XC race. The sub 68-degree headtube angle combines with 432 mm chainstays to provide confidence at speed without sacrificing agility. Spec’d with 29" wheels, Spearfish is also capable of running 27.5+ wheels. The built-in Flip Chip can be used to adjust headtube angle and bottom bracket height based on wheel and tire size, terrain, or personal preference. The low top tube and dropper post contribute to the bike’s descending prowess

VERSATILE TIRE FIT

Spearfish is spec'd with 29 x 2.35" wheels and tires, but also fits: 29 x 2.2" to 2.6" / 27.5 x 2.8" to 3.0

MODERN XC BIKE FIT

Spearfish is designed for a modern XC fit. A short stem, wide bar, and long effective top tube are used to place the rider in a position that balances between aggressive for racing and comfortable for long rides. Our frame design delivers precise steering motion due to the shorter stem; a lot of front wheel control with the wide bar; and plenty of front-center length and cockpit room thanks to the long, low top tube for fore-aft body movement when negotiating trail obstacles. Each frame size is designed around a 50 mm stem and wide bar with a long effective top tube to maintain the correct hand position relative to the pedals and saddle. There's no need to size up when selecting a frame size with the intent of running 40 to 60 mm stems—we built it in for you

TOPTUBE ACCESSORY MOUNTS

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

ACCOMMODATES FULL-SIZE BOTTLE

All Spearfish sizes accept two full-sized (26 oz) water bottle within the front triangle 

INTERNAL SLEEVED CABLE ROUTING

Internal tubes guide housing through the frame, simplifying setup and maintenance, and creating a clean bike profile

DROPPER POST STEALTH ROUTING COMPATIBLE

Compatible with 30.9mm dropper seatposts for true trail bike performance

MOLDED FRAME PROTECTION

Protects your investment from impacts.
