Mongoose Salvo Expert Full Suspension Mountain Bike - 2015
Bringing out all of the weapons currently available to bicycle manufacturers, the 2015 Mongoose Salvo strikes a cunning balance between plush full suspension travel and brutal XC attack speed. The 27.5" wheel size is often thought to be the compromise between large cross-country hoops and agile downhill rims. The 120mm travel range is also too comfortable to be cross country and also too responsive to be a full on trail bike. Instead of choosing a side, the Salvo asks the question -- can't we just ride all of the trails?
This bike is all about finding that perfect balance of components. Manitou's Marvel Comp fork brings 120mm of plush travel while still coming standard with a lockout for sustained climbing. This compliments the X-Fusion O2 RLX Air shock which dials in the Salvo's rear suspension duties. A brilliant mix of Shimano components bring you the right gear for any situation while the Hayes Radar hydraulic disc brakes give you ample control over your speed.
When the Kenda Honey Badger 27.5" tires hook up on your local single track, you'll leave all of your cares behind. The perfect balance of speed and precision blend together with a stiff aluminum frame to shred any trail you'll throw its way. The Mongoose Salvo is the perfect bike for any situation.
