Mukluk & Blackborow - Updated For 2019

Near and dear to my heart, the Mukluk was Salsa’s first fat bike.

2011 Salsa Mukluk...

Those were exciting days as we drew up our fat bike prototype drawings, built steel framed mules (Snowball and Rustflake), and proceeded to put them to the test in order to refine our geometry concepts before entering into final production with aluminum framesets. We were finally entering the fat bike category, something many of us had longed for, for many years.

The years since have been just as exciting. Fat bikes have moved from being sometimes awkward clown bikes to truly fun-to-ride off-road machines. Our fat bikes have gotten better and better over the years, and 2019 is no exception.

For 2019, we are offering three model levels of Mukluk. All receive a stellar new graphics package and colorways, but most importantly the Kingpin fork enters the arena, and fork specs change by model level.

2019 Mukluk Carbon GX Eagle – MSRP $3999

Mukluk Carbon GX Eagle receives our new Kingpin Deluxe fork. This full carbon fork brings with it a huge array of features:

26 x 5” tire fit on 100mm rims

Dual sets of Three-Pack mounts

Mid-blade mounts for low rider racks/panniers

Internal dynamo wire routing for those upgrading to dynamo hubs

Imagine the possibilities!

2019 Mukluk Carbon NX Eagle – MSRP $2999

Mukluk Carbon NX Eagle receives our new Kingpin fork. Kingpin features carbon construction with an aluminum steerer, while sharing all of the other features listed above.

2019 Mukluk Deore 1x – MSRP $1899

Mukluk Deore 1x, our aluminum Mukluk, continues to use our highly respected Bearpaw Carbon fork, featuring:

Full carbon construction

Clearance for 26 x 4.8” tire on 100mm width rim

Forward facing Three-Pack mounts

For those that like to build from the ground up, our 2019 Mukluk frameset includes the Kingpin Deluxe fork at MSRP $1999.

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.
