Salsa Warbird Carbon Gravel Complete Bike (Apex 1)

Warbird Apex 1 700 makes optimum performance for gravel racing or riding easy when the terrain is at its most difficult. The 1x11 SRAM Apex 1 groupset provides quick and intuitive shifting, while the comfortable carbon frame featuring Class 5™ VRS and the Waxwing fork help you pile on the miles.

Warbird is our gravel race bike, designed to provide smooth performance on the roughest surfaces. It was built off years of experience racing in some of the nation’s premier gravel events like the Almanzo 100, Dirty Kanza 200, and 340-mile Trans Iowa.
