Timberjack is Salsa’s aggressive trail hardtail. Its progressive trail geometry is stable on descents and technical sections, while the Alternator 2.0 dropouts allow for adjustable chainstay length to dial in ride characteristics. Ample accessory mounts and dual wheel size compatibility add more versatility to the package, making Timberjack a well-rounded ripper that likes to party.


Overview

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

The all-new Timberjack SLX 27.5+ is your companion for rowdy trail rides, bikepacking trips, and everything in between. A slacker head tube angle and longer wheelbase puts you in complete control on steep and technical trail sections, while rider weight is balanced for pedaling and climbing efficiency. Dial in your ideal ride feel and drivetrain choices with the adjustable Alternator 2.0 dropouts. A multitude of mounts let you load up for rides that last a few extra hours or a few days.

The 27.5 x 2.8” wheels and tires are responsive to quick trail input and hold fast over dirt, rocks, and roots. Shimano’s SLX drivetrain is a reliable performer no matter where the ride takes you. The all-new Timberjack is a versatile mountain bike that makes hardtail riding better than ever.
