The Mukluk is Salsa's ride-anywhere fatbike. It provides extreme tire floatation and traction and rides where other bikes can’t whether on game trails, sandy beaches, backwoods mud runs, snowy singletack, or frozen lakes and rivers.
Alternator dropouts make this an incredibly capable, and versatile, beast. Run geared or singlespeed setups depending on the mission at hand. Pack-rafting, beach riding, and bushwacking? Go single. Trail or snow riding? Gears might be nice.
The Enabler fork further adds to this versatility. Run waterbottles or Anything Cages on your fork legs for a bikepacking trip. Perhaps a low rider or front rack is the order of the day?
For 2013, the Mukluk geometry was updated with cues from our venerable El Mariachi and becomes more trail oriented. Shorter chainstays and a slightly higher bottom bracket make the bike more maneuverable, nimble, and agile. The Alternator dropouts also allow you to customize your handling. Run the dropouts forward for a more nimble handling bike, or position them rearward to increase stability and comfort.
Aluminum tubing is lightweight and extremely corrosion resistant. Melting snow, adventures beneath the high tide line, or an accidental dunking in the beaver pond won’t cause the frame to rust.
Ride where other bikes can’t, whether overgrown, sandy, muddy, slushy, frozen or downright dreadful.
