The Cassidy C XT is a well-balanced carbon enduro bike. The stiff frame helps you hold your line through treacherous terrain, while Fox’s Float X2 Performance shock and Float 38 Performance Elite GRIP2 soften the trail with 165 mm rear and 180 mm front travel. Progressive trail geometry and our Split Pivot suspension design keep your tires planted both down and up the mountain. On-bike cargo features such as a padded tube strap spot, top tube mount, and full-size bottle clearance support extra laps or longer days out, making Cassidy ideal for enduro adventures. Shimano’s XT 1 x 12 components bring smooth shifting, wide range, and four-piston brakes to take it all to the next level. Time to start adding trails to your “must-ride” list.

 

Split Pivot Suspension Linkage:

Split Pivot provides a host of impressive suspension characteristics because the system isolates pedaling forces and braking forces from each other, allowing us to tune and optimize the bike for both independently. The concentric rear axle pivot, in conjunction with precise wheel link, brake link, and control link placement, results in excellent bump compliance and pedaling efficiency, smooth and predictable braking throughout travel, and maximum traction.

 

Split Pivot+ Design 

The Split Pivot+ design methodology allows our engineers to optimize a frame for more than one travel class. This means that Cassidy riders can swap control and shock links, in addition to the rear shock and fork, to switch travel to Blackthorn’s 140 mm rear and 160 mm front capability. One frame, multiple bikes

 

"THE CASSIDY IS A DESCENT-BOMBING ENDURO MACHINE THAT IS SPEC’D PROPERLY AND CAPABLE OF HANDLING WHATEVER A RIDER WOULD LIKE TO THROW AT IT. THIS SALSA CAN BE TAKEN TO THE LIFTS FOR ALL-DAY PARK LAPS OR USED TO EXPLORE THE NEXT AGGRESSIVE TRAIL IN YOUR AREA.”
