An aluminum hardtail that can wear 27.5+ or 29” wheels and tires, Timberjack is eager to tear it up on singletrack or bikepack without missing a beat. It features a ton of versatility that makes it ready for almost anything.

Whatever wheelset you choose; Timberjack Geometry is designed to ignite your off-road experience. A short stem yields more precise steering with less required motion, a wider bar provides more front wheel control, and plenty of front-center length gives you more room for fore-aft body movement when the trail demands it. This calculated and very intentional “mechanical trail” transmits Timberjack’s capable, sure-footed feel across every frame size.

Timberjack has a great blend of reliability and modern, trickle-down tech. Built from top-shelf aluminum, its chainstay lengths can range from stable to spunky via our Alternator Dropouts. Alternator Dropout plate options also allow 135mm QR, 142mm thru-axle, or BOOST-148 rear hub use. Internal cable and dropper post routing add to this feature-packed rig.

Salsa Engineer Sean Mailen says, “Timberjack is an aggressively modern mountain bike that makes ripping around on a hardtail extremely fun. You can venture out on terrain you thought was only rideable on a full-suspension bike and have a blast.” Industrial Designer Andrew Cottrell adds, “Timberjack is a go-to mountain hardtail. It’s built for everything you’d have in mind with a new modern trail sled, from evening trail sessions to multi-day bikepacking trips.”

We're excited to add this new platform to the Salsa line, and look forward to seeing folks put it to good use in the days ahead!
