The Salsa Pony Rustler Carbon X01 is backcountry leader on the hunt for epic singletrack. This full-suspension bike features mid-fat 27.5 x 3.0-inch tires for unbelievable grip, and 120mm of Split Pivot suspension for impressive traction and pedaling efficiency. Rear suspension damping is provided by the highly capable RockShox Monarch RT3, and a Pike RC fork offers 130mm of rock-eating travel. Thanks to Boost hub and bottom bracket spacing, the Pony Rustler is built to accept both the stock 27.5+ wheelset or an alternate 29er wheelset to suit your experience. A SRAM X01 1x11 drivetrain takes the sting out of steep climbs with ample gearing and buttery shifts, while the SRAM Guide RS hydraulic disc brakes provide pinpoint stopping power for maximum control on fast descents. A RockShox Reverb dropper post paired with a WTB Volt Pro saddle adds stability and convenience for getting low and crushing techy trails, too. Contact points are finished with a blend of Salsa's own proven backcountry set to create one bike for all your mountain adventures.
