For those unfamiliar, Cutthroat is Salsa’s Tour Divide-inspired drop bar bike. The Cutthroat was conceived as a svelte carbon bikepacking and endurance race machine designed for the endless ribbons of gravel, doubletrack, and smooth singletrack that the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route is known for. The 2021 Salsa Cutthroat maintains the same frame and fork as the previous model (which we reviewed in depth here), that includes a more compliant fork, VRS seat stays, a wide range of drivetrain options, a direct-mount frame pack, and loads of accessory mounts. You can find all the details on that review, and scroll down for details on each of the 2021 Salsa Cutthroat builds.
