model: HARDTAIL 29ERS
For the group of mountain bikes at Salsa Cycles the 2013 Mamasita falls directly in their race-bred hard tail category. They have not only designed it to be fast and feather light, but to be one of the most efficient rides out on the single track. You will absolutely love any of the pursuits you choose to throw it in the mix with, whether it’s a minor 2 hour jaunt, or a mere 24.
Their engineers have used EV6 Xtrolite aluminum tubes that were custom-drawn up specific for the 2013 Mamasita 29er project. They know all to well that a lightweight frame is key, but they also never lose site of four key qualities – the best durability along with ride quality, transfer of power from the pedals, and steering precision. So for steering precision with the front end, they applied an over sized down tube that connects the tapered head tube to get the front end stiffness ultimately where it needs to be, so the mtn ride stays planted where you direct it.
For the power transfer department they utilized shaped seat stays and chain stays to maintain the necessary lateral stiffness, but yet still have a small amount of vertical compliance to give the mountain bike that 24 hour ride quality. To go one step farther they used a PressFit 30 BB shell to improves the frames stiffness and power transfer even further.
