The Salsa Cutthroat Apex 1 combines the redesigned Cutthroat carbon frame and fork with the tried-and-true performance of SRAM’s Apex 1 drivetrain. With gear range and cargo capacity for everything from gravel rides to bikepacking expeditions, this is an ultra-endurance bike ready to take you farther than you ever thought you could go.
- Redesigned Carbon Fork: With 32% more compliance over previous generation Cutthroat fork and new abrasion-resistant plates in high-wear areas. Features three-pack mounts and internal dynamo cable routing
- Class 5 Vibration Reduction System (VRS): 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
- Direct-Mount Frame Pack Compatible: Pack mounts to the frame via thumb screws for tool free attachment and removable, creating a streamlined look and preventing wear from strap rub
