The new SRAM GX-level Vaya replaces the 2016 X9 build is our favorite Vaya. It includes a carbon thru-axle fork with lowrider mounts, mounts for three bottle cages, and clearance for tires up to 47mm.
Oh, and it's $100 less than the steel-fork 2016 Vaya X9. To review: Better, faster, cheaper.
Vaya is Salsa's road adventure and light touring bike, designed to handle any road surface, from pavement to gravel to dirt. The tubing selection and stable geometry across the line makes for a bike that feels great unloaded or loaded for a fast tour, soaking up unpredictable surfaces mile after mile, from one town to the next. Vaya is an extremely versatile machine, always ready and able if the path turns less than ideal.
Any-road, gravel, commuting, and light touring
Mounting points for rear rack and front lowrider racks

We're expecting these to arrive late summer to early fall.
Sorry, we're not allowed to ship this bike unless it's paid for in-store.
