2008 56cm Salsa Campeon Road Bike $999

If road racing or fast road riding is your pursuit, the Campeón deserves your attention. Crafted from custom-drawn scandium with carbon seatstays and an Alpha Q CS20 carbon fork, the Campeón aims to deliver race speed with as much comfort as possible.

The Campeón uses a sloping geometry. This fit-friendly design tightens up the frame, increasing stiffness. By making the frame stiffer, wasted energy is lessened, and your pedal strokes translate directly into forward momentum. Stand up and sprint and the bike responds immediately. The sloping geometry also means use of a longer seatpost, which in turn means enhanced comfort as the seatpost flexes instead of the frame.

The Campeón’s flat-shaped chainstays are designed to remain laterally stiff while directing road shock upwards into the bump-dissipating carbon seatstays. It is all part of our effort to make the Campeón not only the fastest, but also the most comfortable frameset it can be.
