Warroad C Ultegra
Warroad C Ultegra
For those seeking more than just the “Lightest-stiffest-most aerodynamic” road bike experience, Warroad is just the thing. The agile and full-featured carbon fiber frameset is designed with Class 5™ VRS for compliance and composure on the rough stuff. Warroad’s endurance road geometry is designed for sustained rides, with ample frame and fork mounts for your all-day ride provisions. Designed to accommodate both 700c and 650b wheels, Warroad riders can set up a second wheelset for changing terrain or preferences. Add Shimano’s Ultegra components, renowned for light and smooth shifting, and you’ve got an all-road bike that feels right in every way.
Class 5 VRS
The Class 5™ Vibration Reduction System has specially shaped seatstays with a tall, thin, vertically-oriented profile that promotes vertical compliance by allowing the seatstays to “flex” outwards on impacts. The horizontally oriented chainstays work to resist torque and maintain a laterally stiff rear end. The seatstays and chainstays lack bridges, furthering the full length of the stays to contribute to flexibility. And a rear thru-axle delivers precise tracking while allowing the seatstays to provide that incredible compliance.
Interior Junction Control Molding Technology
We use internal molds at all the main front triangle junctions during layup and curing. This allows for precise control of wall thickness and inner wall smoothness in these areas. This process increases compaction and reduces voids and wrinkles in critical high-stress zones. The end result is a top-quality carbon frame that delivers consistent high performance.
Salsa's endurance all-road geometry pairs a slack head tube angle with a long offset fork to create high mechanical trail, which increases stability on rough surfaces. 415 mm chainstays make for a bike that’s nimble and responsive but smooth on unpredictable surfaces.
Warroad Deluxe Fork
This full-carbon fork utilizes a 12 x 100 mm thru-axle for true tracking and flat mount brake for quick setup. Most importantly, the fork includes an incredible array of accessory features: Three-Pack mounts accept either water bottle cages or Anything Cages for increased hydration or gear-carrying capacity / Mid-blade mounts allow for the attachment of our Down Under low-rider rack for front pannier use / Internal dynamo hub cable routing means clean cable routing for those upgrading to dynamo front hubs / Fender mounts mean more pleasant riding in wet weather, allowing you to tack on more training miles.
Dual Wheel Size Compatible
Warroad fits up to 700c x 35 mm OR 650b x 47 mm wheels/tires. We offer models with each spec so you can choose the wheel size that best meets your needs, or set up a second wheel set so your Warroad is optimized for the ride at hand.
Integrated Top Tube Bag Mount
Bolt on your Salsa EXP Series Top Tube Bag for secure connection and elimination of strap wear on your frame.
Generous Water Bottle Capacity
Stay hydrated during all-day rides and races. 2–3 bottle mounts inside the main triangle (56cm and larger receive 3), 1 accessory mount on underside of downtube, 2 bottle mounts possible on fork via Three-Pack mounts.
Internal Sleeved Cable Routing
Internal tubes guide housing through the frame, simplifying setup and maintenance.
Refined Drivetrain Compatibility
Warroad is designed to accept 1x, 2x and electronic shifting options.
Stealth Dropper Post Compatible
Accepts a 27.2mm dropper post when running 1x or Di2 drivetrain for more confident descending at high speeds on rough roads and unpredictable terrain.
Stay clean and comfortable on wet-weather rides
