A good adventure partner is reliable, covers ground at your pace, helps shoulder the load, and gives you the confidence to keep going when the trail looks tough (or disappears entirely). Mukluk checks all the boxes with Alternator dropouts, a lightweight aluminum frame, plenty of gear mounts, and stable geometry. We'll let you two start planning. 6066-T6 Aluminum Frame Top-shelf, double and triple-butted, heat-treated 6066-T6 aluminum tubing is used throughout the frame. This 6000-series aluminum has better strength and fatigue characteristics than 6061 and 7000-series aluminum, allowing for a stronger and lighter overall frame. Additionally, the tubing is strategically shaped and formed for additional stiffness and strength optimization in key stress areas. Mukluk Geometry Mukluk's geometry works extremely well in all conditions and use cases, whether it be riding groomed singletrack at your local trail, exploring a beach coastline, or embarking across the wild frozen expanses of Alaska. At its core, we use the shortest chainstay possible with a headtube angle and fork offset that place the rider's center of gravity further over the rear wheel. This location and combination of front and rear center is key to getting a fat bike that is stable, steers well in loose conditions, and still feels nimble and agile despite the massive wheels and tires. A low bottom bracket is also key to keep the rider's center of gravity low and to make dabbing, dismounting, and remounting easier. 26 x 4.6" Wheel & Tire Size Mukluk rolls on 26 x 4.6" tires on 80mm rims. This huge tire delivers massive traction, stability, and optimum flotation on soft surfaces such as ungroomed snow or loose sand. Bearpaw Carbon Fork This full-carbon fork features a 150 x 15mm thru-axle that boosts stiffness and improves steering precision. The fork also features our Three-Pack mounts for accessorizing with Anything Cages or water bottle cages.
Tame trails and tracks less traveled with Rangefinder Deore 27.5+. The lightweight aluminum frame, confidence-inspiring trail geometry, and unrelenting grip of 27.5 x 2.8" tires make a solid platform for exploring singletrack and any other off-road action you might get into. The Shimano Deore components deliver smooth shifts, while the dropper post and 120mm fork take the intimidation out of tricky terrain.
The Salsa Timberjack is a hardtail mountain bike that’s equally at home pushing the limits on singletrack or bikepacking to places you’ve yet to discover. Timberjack features modern trail bike geometry, short chainstays for nimble scrambling, and clearance for either 29-inch or plus-size 27.5-inch tires. Timberjack NX Eagle 29 makes hard trails a heck of a lot easier. The SRAM NX Eagle groupset provides light, intuitive 1x12 gearing, while the RockShox Sektor RL fork works with the 29 x 2.6” rubber to smooth the bumps and provide traction. Timberjack’s powerful SRAM Level brakes easily tame your speed when necessary, with precise modulation that sharpens up the control so you can activate that dropper post and light up the trail.
The redesigned Cutthroat drop-bar mountain bike and gravel frameset offers more stability and compliance in a package that’s equally at home bikepacking on remote doubletrack, taking the occasional singletrack shortcut, or conquering a gravel race. Build it into the all-day, mixed-surface bike you’ve always wanted.
