Description

Blackborow is Salsa's expedition fatbike, designed for 5" tires that yield maximum flotation on soft surfaces. Blackborow will keep you riding as long as possible when surface conditions would typically say otherwise. The world seems to get a bit smaller every day, but it’s still a big place. If getting off the grid and exploring the unknown interests you, Blackborow is your bike.
