Don't worry, we get it...your training buddies all think you're a bit "particular". You may or may not have stockpiled your favorite grips just in case they ever get replaced by a new model. Perhaps your trailside toolbox would make a quality control engineer blush. Whatever the case, you won't find any judgment here. Instead, the endlessly engineered S-Works Epic Frameset is here for you to let your discerning tastes run wild. We sweated every last detail when designing the S-Works frame, from an endlessly refined layup schedule that re-examined every last ply of FACT 12m carbon to optimize weight savings and ride dynamics, to the weight-shedding carbon shock link, all so that you focus on the rest, knowing that you're starting with the most capable canvas in the world. True to form, the latest Epic continues the tradition, taking advantage of the most efficient Brain suspension we've ever created to ensure it's always on a first-name-basis with fast. Re-engineered hand-in-hand with the new Epic, the latest BRAIN design resets the expectation for efficiency, employing a new race-tuned pedaling platform to ensure every watt possible is translated into forward motion, while handily soaking up momentum-killing chatter and big hits alike, all more smoothly than ever. Perfectly matched to the frame's BRAIN system, the S-Works Epic frameset's Position-Sensitive BRAIN fork benefits from RockShox's latest SID Ulitmate SL chassis for next-level steering stiffness that still manages to keep the gram count to a minimum. - If speed could talk, it'd introduce itself as the all-new S-Works Epic frame. Offering 100-millimeters of brilliantly efficient Brain-controlled travel, the S-Work Epic increases rear-triangle stiffness for peerless power transfer, while the use of FACT 12m carbon, a dedicated layup, and a full carbon shock link also make it the lightest full-suspension frame we've ever created, all while offering the most capable handling in an Epic yet. Nice to meet you, speed. - Pairing 100 millimeters of the most efficient travel on earth with RockShox's svelte-yet-stiff SID SL Ultimate chassis, the RockShox SID SL Ultimate BRAIN fork serves as the pinnacle of XC-race suspension perfection.
The Fargo is Salsa’s original drop bar mountain bike.

The Timberjack Ti absolutely owns all paths — wooded, skinny, and flowy, making you the master of every ride thanks to its multi-talented character. The frame is constructed from custom, top-shelf titanium with a fast-handling geometry to deliver the stiffness needed to whip through tight turns and accelerate with instant power, while super-short chainstays make it easy to lift over obstacles so you can stay with the flow. Run it as a 27.5+ with up to 3-inch tires for maximum fun, or go for efficiency with a 29er wheelset — with Salsa's Alternator Dropouts you get an impressive grip of wheelset and drivetrain options to suit your style and intention.
Developed with the Giant Factory Team riders who push the limits of their bodies and bikes week in and week out, this bike is made to boost confidence and shave seconds on the most punishing enduro terrain. We engineered the geometry of the Advanced composite frame and swingarm around larger diameter 29-inch wheels. That means shorter chainstays, a longer toptube, and just the right angles with the headtube (64.56 degrees) and seattube (76.36 degrees). We gave it an updated Maestro rear suspension system with 146mm of travel. The trunnion mount shock and Advanced Forged Composite rocker arm deliver an active, super plush feel on the trail. Other features including a cleanly routed dropper seatpost and a new Giant WheelSystem with Boost hub spacing and tubeless tires complete this race-ready package.
If you're looking to build the fastest, most capable enduro race bike, this is the frame you want to start with. The Enduro combines peerless downhill performance with surprisingly-quick acceleration. It delivers blistering speed, mega-travel length, and smart features that're big on performance. Get ready to go fast. - ASTONISHINGLY FAST. UP AND DOWN THE TRAIL. Stomp on the pedals and the new Enduro accelerates far quicker than you'd expect possible from a downhill bruiser. To start, we increased anti-squat, so the suspension better-resists pedal bob. Then, to further its efficiency, we re-directed the angle of the chainstay and upper shock linkages for a much more efficient design. The end result? Less bobbing, more speed. - FAST STARTS WITH FIT. Fast and fit aren't mutually exclusive, which is why the progressive geometry of the Enduro has been designed for going up and down. To start, seat tubes and stack heights don't grow massively between sizes, meaning you can now pick a frame size based on both your height and your riding style. Pair this new sizing style with a slacker head angle, longer reach, and steeper seat tube across the line, and you're left with a quicker and more capable steed, no matter the size. - INCREDIBLY CAPABLE. If the Enduro looks like its sibling, the Demo, it's because they share plenty of downhill DNA. A more-rearward axle path reduces wheel hang-up on big impacts. A low- and forward-positioned shock keeps it planted and confident-feeling at high speeds. And balanced chassis stiffness helps the front-end steer precisely and keeps the rear-end tracking like it's on rails. Add it all up and you have a bike that laughs in the face of the steepest, rockiest trails.
The Optic is an aggressive short-travel sled that absolutely rips on descents but can get back up without a gondola. With 125mm of DH-inspired rear suspension, and 140mm travel up front, the Optic embodies Norco's Ride Aligned technology to provide clarity when your vision starts to blur from the speed—or your over-active tear ducts. - Optic Carbon 29" 125mm FT/6061 Alloy RT - Progressive Trail geometry based around 140mm short offset forks - Slack 65 Degree HA - Short seat tubes with long travel droppers - Ride Aligned Suspension setup - Updated Chainstay and Seatstay - Stiffer, 180mm post mount brake, more heel clearance RIDER BENEFITS: - RIDE ALIGNED: The Optic uses Norco's Ride Aligned design system which matches each individual bike to the human who rides it, creating a customized platform that is both stable and balanced, allowing the rider to push harder. - FINE TUNED REAR SUSPENSION: We created the Optic's suspension design around a very specific spring curve and damper settings, and RockShox and Fox stepped up to build everything we were looking for. - HIGH SPEED BY DESIGN: By relaxing the Optic's head angle to 65 degrees for stability, we fine-tuned the handling with reduced-offset forks – providing even more high-speed precision and predictability for a more aggressive trail attack. - EQUIPPED TO DESCEND: To bolster the Optic's descending prowess, each bike is equipped with 4-piston disc brakes, shorter seat tubes, long-stroke dropper posts and aggressive knobby tires.
Speed meets stability. This superlight, composite XC flyer blends the most up-to-date Maestro suspension technology with totally reengineered 29er geometry. If XC racing is your game, this is the perfect partner for your podium quest. Handcrafted with a superlight Advanced-grade carbon frame, this XC flyer features 90mm of smooth rear suspension travel and 100mm up front. The new trunnion mount shock produces a lower leverage ratio for better pedaling and braking efficiency, and also allows for shorter chainstays to improve the bike’s climbing capabilities and agility. The Advanced Forged Composite upper rocker arm is lighter, stiffer and stronger than the previous aluminum version. And the combination of wider Boost hub spacing and a Giant WheelSystem gives you super strong and stiff wheels for confident, precise handling on XC terrain.
