Overview

Our inspiring review is coming soon for now, here is what Salsa has to say:

Unlock new roads and experiences with Journeyer Sora 650b. An all-new aluminum frame and our Waxwing carbon fork create a ride that’s fit for gravel roads, bikepacking routes, or getting from A to B around town with as much fun as possible. Mounts for fenders, racks, Anything Cages, and other accessories mean that you have options for carrying your ride supplies or camping gear. 650b wheels with 47 mm tires offer quick acceleration and a large contact patch for grip on loose surfaces. Shimano’s Sora 2 x 9-speed groupset prepares you for steep climbs or speedy flat sections. This formula made Journeyer one of the most popular gravel bikes out there — take one for a ride and see why.
