The Vaya has been updated for 2017 and is in stock now!
Imagine a cloudless sunny day with a nice light breeze, no responsibilities to speak of in any direction, a favorite big breakfast down the hatch, and fresh-feeling legs. Grabbing a Vaya and heading out to some seldom traveled countryside is the perfect way to complete the picture.
Vaya is our road adventure and light touring bike, designed to ramble over pavement, gravel, and dirt.
Vaya’s geometry is optimized for fit with Salsa drop bars. Frame angles add up to stable handling with or without a light load. The Kung Fu tubing, crafted of triple-butted, seamless Sanko CroMoly, utilizes our own butting profile and provides all-day comfort and high-mileage durability.
Vaya GX has a full carbon fork out front with a tapered 1-1/8 to 1-¼" steerer for compliance and an ideal ride over rough, uneven surfaces. A 15 x 100mm thru-axle provides confidence inspired tracking.

All Vaya forks feature mid-blade rack mounts and eyelets for fenders. Fender mounts on the Vaya Carbon fork are hidden for a clean look.
Eyelets on the frame add versatility and carrying capacity. If you’re the type of rider that never looks at the forecast before you leave, carry some rain gear on a Salsa Wanderlust Rack. Maybe throw a tent, your coffee kit, or a good book on there too, to ride out an unexpected storm in style.

All Vayas have front and rear clearance for 700c x 50mm tires, or 700c x 45mm with fenders. Dress up your Vaya with some knobby treads or take comfort to the next level with the current crop of high-volume road tires on the market.
Vaya is the ideal bike for those who like to collect stories through their rides. It’s always ready and able for the picture perfect path or the ones that end up less than ideal.
