Description

Blackborow is Salsa’s “dream big” fatbike, best paired with an unlimited imagination. With huge carrying capacity, via abundant frame and fork braze-ons, and room for four full-sized panniers on the beautifully engineered rear rack, your “It sure would be awesome to…” list of expeditions is more feasible than ever. The SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain gives you an enormous gear range to haul you and your gear up and through all manner of terrain, while Hayes mechanical disc brakes provide outstanding braking power while remaining field-serviceable. Blackborow’s Sun Ringle Mulefut wheels and Maxxis FBF/FBR tires open the door to nearly anywhere, even when you’re fully loaded. When resupplies along your route are few and far between, or you want to incorporate backcountry skiing, fishing, trailbuilding, camping or any number of other opportunities into your journey, Blackborow will be at the top of your pack list every time.
