Salsa Woodsmoke


Agile & adaptable – the bikepackers dream


Woodsmoke is Salsa's multiple wheelsize-friendly carbon hardtail mountain bike. We offer models with the punchy grip and agility of 27.5+, the XC speed of 29″, or the momentum and rollover of 29+ so you can choose the setup that best suits your riding style, terrain, and goals. Ultra-short chainstays combined with carbon’s light weight and stiffness bring the best attributes of each wheelsize to life for new kinds of off-road action. The large front triangle welcomes all the gear you need for backcountry trips. In this new era of mountain biking and bikepacking, Woodsmoke is the pointy end of the spear.

Big wheels. Big plans. Big fast fun.    

Note: Salsa Bikes are special order from USA. Allow about 4 weeks for in-stock products. Contact us for for more info and availability.


  • Versatile: Woodsmoke offers a variety of canvases for the off-road artist. Build it with 29+, 27.5+, or 29er tires for the appropriate use case and traction. Use a 120–140mm travel suspension fork or our rigid Firestarter fork. Build it up geared or singlespeed with the Alternator 2.0 dropouts that can change chainstay lengths from 400 to 417mm long). Woodsmoke can easily adapt to whatever flavor of undertaking you’re up for.
  • Killer Geometry: Woodsmoke uses a longer toptube and shorter stem to put the rider in a confidence-inspiring position for off-road riding. Using the same stem length, offsets, and angles on each frame size, we provide riders across our size range with the same consistent front-end experience. Combining this front end with ultra-short chainstays, as short as 400mm, makes Woodsmoke an extremely agile trail bike.
  • Ultra-short Chainstays: Woodsmoke challenges the current notion of “short.” Inspired by our previous hardtail development and elevated chainstay bikes of the past, we wanted to push the limits of chainstay length. Not just short for short’s sake though, the Woodsmoke has monster truck rollover with sports car nimbleness. With Woodsmoke geometry and the option of 27.5+, 29", and 29+ wheels and tires, Woodsmoke is the ideal blend of the best traction for the task at hand and all-day shredability.
