Salsa Mukluk

Mukluk is Salsa’s snow bike. Snowy singletrack, snowmobile trails, and snow-covered frozen lakes and rivers are its home.

A snow bike is nothing without floatation. Wide rims, and wide tires run at proper pressure for the conditions, make the difference between riding and pushing.

But effective frame geometry is equally important. Mukluk’s geometry is chosen for snow riding. It is stable with slower handling than a ‘typical’ hardtail mountain bike. Mukluk rides comfortably at slow speed without sacrificing handling at faster speeds.

The tall headtube, low standover height, and lower bottom bracket height make dabbing, stops and starts, dismounts and re-mounts much easier when tough snow conditions force you to put a foot down.
