Endurance All-Road / Road Without Limits / Hero Gravel
The Warroad frameset is an endurance road bike frameset that’s loaded with features, from the Class 5 VRS to dual wheel size compatibility to mounts for racks, fenders, and an EXP Series Top Tube Bag. The durable, lightweight carbon construction and endurance all-road geometry ensure that wherever your road rides take you, Warroad is ready.
Class 5 VRS
The Class 5 Vibration Reduction System has specially shaped seatstays with a tall, thin, vertically oriented profile that promotes vertical compliance by allowing the seatstays to “flex” outwards on impacts. The horizontally oriented chainstays work to resist torque and maintain a laterally stiff rear end. The seatstays and chainstays lack bridges, furthering the full length of the stays to contribute to flexibility. And a rear thru-axle delivers precise tracking while allowing the seatstays to provide that incredible compliance.
Interior Junction Control Molding Technology
We use internal molds at all the main front triangle junctions during layup and curing. This allows for precise control of wall thickness and inner wall smoothness in these areas. This process increases compaction and reduces voids and wrinkles in critical high-stress zones. The end result is a top-quality carbon frame that delivers consistent high performance.
Our endurance all-road geometry pairs a slack head tube angle with a long offset fork to create high mechanical trail, which increases stability on rough surfaces. 415mm chainstays, size-specific carbon layup and oversize bottom bracket junction make for a bike that’s responsive when accelerating but keeps the ride smooth.
Warroad Deluxe Fork
This full-carbon fork utilizes a 12 x 100mm thru-axle for true tracking and flat mount brake for quick setup. Most importantly, the fork includes an incredible array of accessory features:
Dual Wheel Size Compatible
- Three-Pack mounts accept either water bottle cages or Anything Cages for increased hydration or gear carrying capacity
- Mid-blade mounts allow the attachment of our Down Under Low Rider Rack for front pannier use
- Internal dynamo hub cable routing means clean cable routing for those upgrading to dynamo front hubs
- Fender mounts mean more pleasant riding in rainy weather, allowing you to tack on more training miles
Warroad fits up to 700c x 35mm OR 650b x 47mm wheels/tires. We offer models with each spec so you can choose the wheel size that best meets your needs, or set up a second wheel set so your Warroad is optimized for the ride at hand.
Integrated Top Tube Bag Mount
Bolt on your Salsa EXP Series Toptube Bag for secure connection and elimination of strap wear on your frame.
Generous Water Bottle Capacity
Stay hydrated during all-day rides and races. 2–3 bottle mounts inside the main triangle (56cm and larger receive 3), 1 accessory mount on underside of downtube, 2 bottle mounts possible on fork via Three-Pack mounts.
Internal Sleeved Cable Routing
Internal tubes guide housing through the frame, simplifying setup and maintenance.
Refined Drivetrain Compatibility
Warroad is designed to accept 1x, 2x and electronic shifting options.
Stealth Dropper Post Compatible
Accepts a 27.2mm dropper post when running 1x or Di2 drivetrain for more confident descending at high speeds on rough roads and unpredictable terrain.
Stay clean and comfortable on wet-weather rides.
Rear Rack Friendly
Compatible with the Salsa Wanderlust Rack when using the optional Salsa Rack-Lock seat collar.
