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.


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

We’ll let you in on a secret: hardtails can be just as fun as a full-suspension rig, especially when it’s our all-new Timberjack trail hardtail. The updated geometry nudges you to ride bolder lines and push your limits. Mounts for bottles, accessories, and a rear rack extend your riding range and comfort.

Our adjustable Alternator 2.0 dropouts let you dial in your preferred ride characteristics and allow for a variety of drivetrain options if you want to change things up. 27.5 x 2.8” wheels and tires bring a playful, nimble trail feel with loads of grip. Shimano’s classic XT group delivers smooth shifting and enough gear range for any elevation profile. The all-new Timberjack is a fun-forward and aggressive hardtail built for your rowdy lunch loops or grander plans.
