Salsa Cycles (United States) - Press Release: We’re excited to introduce Rangefinder, an all-new hardtail that adds depth to our mountain bike lineup. Built to bring everything we love about mountain biking to more people, Rangefinder delivers a natural trail riding experience that makes it easy to pick it up and start riding.
We designed the Rangefinder frame for a ride that’s both exceptionally stable and fun. 6061-T6 aluminum keeps frame weight low, and the trail geometry keeps your weight back to inspire confidence on terrain that would otherwise be intimidating. The simplicity of the vertical dropouts is ideal if you don’t feel a need to tinker with multiple hub and drivetrain possibilities—you just want to ride.
Rangefinder comes equipped with all the must-have features of a modern mountain bike:
- A 120 mm fork to smooth out the trail
- 29" and 27.5+ wheel and tire options to suit many trail types and rider preferences
- A dropper post for shifting your weight around when navigating trail obstacles
- Hydraulic brakes for easy speed control
- 1x drivetrain for simple shifting
- Internal cable routing to keep everything clean
We’ve also loaded Rangefinder with our signature cargo-carrying features to fuel your adventures. Every frame size accommodates two water bottles, and the extra mount on the underside of the down tube is perfect for a repair kit or other accessory. The top tube mounts are designed for use with our EXP Series Direct Mount Top Tube Bag to keep your phone or ride snacks in easy reach. Rangefinder is also compatible with a rear rack when using our Rack-Lock seatpost collar.
You might be a long-time rider just dipping into the dirt scene, or a first-time rider looking to dive right in; you might be looking to ride trails with your friends after work or set out on bikepacking overnights on the weekends. No matter where you are on your journey to dirt, Rangefinder delivers the full Salsa mountain biking experience in an approachable package.
