Gravel is rough, unforgiving, and totally fun to ride. Salsa's Warbird Carbon is the ultimate, high-performance, silky-smooth bandit to give you the upper hand to rule and completely enjoy nature's least forgiving roads, trails, and paths. This amazing machine boasts Salsa's featherweight, super-efficient and vibration-damping carbon frame paired with their carbon fork for the perfect blend of power, stability and comfort. The seatstays, chainstays, and rear thru-axle are all part of Salsa's Class 5 VRS, or Vibration Reduction System, to provide compliance while still maintaining excellent stiffness. It's a versatile rig rolling on stellar DT Swiss R24 Spline wheels with grippy, supple Schwalbe tires. And, for control in all weather and on all surfaces, SRAM's Rival Hydro discs can't be beat. Precision shifting and all the right gears comes courtesy of a SRAM Rival 22 drivetrain. Hour after hour on those epic rides, Thomson's X4 stem and Elite seatpost, the Salsa Cowbell 2 bars, and the svelte, supportive WTB Silverado saddle keep rider comfort high.

Although it doesn't have obvious fender mounts, we can fit some full-coverage fenders on the Warbird by the clever use of zip ties. Or we can use the quick-mount variety of fenders from Planet Bike or SKS.
