27.5-Inch Plus Wheel
Easy to get to know and multi-talented, Salsa’s Timberjack is equally at home pushing the limits on singletrack or bikepacking to places you’ve yet to discover. Its light, responsive, and durable aluminum frame features modern trail bike geometry and clearance for either 29-inch or 27.5+ wheels and tires. Super short chainstays aid in nimble scrambling; up, down, and in and out of turns, while Alternator dropouts facilitate diverse drivetrain setups. RockShox handles suspension with a 120mm-travel Judy Gold fork, and a pair of 27.5+ Sun Ringle Duroc 45 rims hold up to your trail aggression to let those 2.8-inch Maxxis Recon tires serve up all the traction you could want. Timberjack SLX offers a wide-range, 11-speed Shimano SLX drivetrain with Race Face crankset and Deore hydraulic brakes. This workhorse package further enhances the bike’s climbing talent and delivers solid braking control so you can pin it and still swoop the hairpins.
The Salsa Timberjack is a hardtail mountain bike that’s equally at home pushing the limits on singletrack or bikepacking to places you’ve yet to discover. Timberjack features modern trail bike geometry, short chainstays for nimble scrambling, and clearance for either 29-inch or plus-size 27.5-inch tires. Timberjack SLX 27.5+ is a perfect companion for off-road exploration. The aluminum frame, Rockshox Recon RL fork, and 27.5+ wheels paired with front- and rear-specific 2.8-inch WTB tires let you ride the trail longer and harder with less fatigue and more fun. Its Shimano SLX 1x11 drivetrain cranks up inclines like they’re nothing, and still has the gear-inches to rip down fire roads or go flat-out on straight sections of trail. Fortunately, you’ll have a powerful pair of Shimano hydraulic brakes at your disposal to easily tame that speed when necessary, so let it rip.
