2015 Salsa Horsethief Carbon XTR

Salsa's Horsethief Carbon XTR begs the question: Why ride anything but the best? Lightened up on a diet of primo carbon fiber, the Horsethief includes other killer features like a tapered head tube, pressfit bottom bracket, full-length housing guides, and stealth dropper post routing to keep this bike at the top of its class. It easily tackles aggressive, big-mountain terrain thanks to a plush Kashima-coated Fox shock that's paired with the active Split Pivot suspension for 120mm of travel. Built with short chain stays, a long top tube, wide bars, and a short stem, this bike is a blast to ride down the trail, carving corners with steez. The Shimano XTR 20-speed drivetrain defines high-speed, high-precision shifting, and when things get a little hairy Shimano's XTR brakes bring everything back under control. A bike like this deserves only top-shelf components, with a carbon Salsa handlebar, Thomson stem, and Thomson Elite Covert dropper post. Throw in a pair of Salsa's lock-on grips and a svelte WTB Volt Race saddle and you're ready to hit the trails.
