There are many reasons why people advocate for single-gender classrooms, including less distraction (especially during teenage years when hormones rage), less “gender intensification” where coed settings reinforce stereotypes, and more instruction tailored to the unique ways boys and girls learn.

In 2007, Jefferson Leadership Academies reversed its same-sex curriculum after issues with disappointing test scores and scheduling conflicts arose.

Jefferson Leadership Academies was in the spotlight in 1999 when it became the first public middle school in the United States to have entirely single-gender classes. Research showed that girls did better in math and science in all-girl settings.

On the eve of the 2015 Tour Divide, Salsa is rolling out a new mountain bike that it's calling the ultimate tool for the 2,780-mile race down the crest of North America.

The Cutthroat is a carbon fiber, drop-handlebar mountain bike with an oversize front triangle for added cargo storage, extra compliance in the rear end, Salsa’s rigid, thru-axle Firestarter Carbon fork, and mounts for four water bottles and myriad rack and pack systems.

Detractors of same-sex classrooms weren’t surprised since one of the biggest challenges to single-sex classrooms is the lack of concrete evidence that they boost achievement.

As Margaret Talbot wrote in her 2012 New Yorker piece, “The evidence wasn’t very good then [the ’90s] for a gap between the genders’ learning styles so significant that it would mandate separate instruction, and it hasn’t gotten any better.” Plus, another argument against single-gender schools is that the real world doesn’t afford a society where students can work with or interact with one gender over another.

Handling wise, Salsa says the bike leans toward the stability and comfort needed for the long haul from Banff, Canada, to Antelope, Wells, New Mexico, but is still nimble enough for single track.

And they’ll put the bike to the test under sponsored athlete Jay Petervary, who holds the course record for the Tour Divide.

The Cutthroat name plays on the fierceness of competition for which the bike is intended, but it’s also a reference to the species of trout, the state fish of all five states through which the Tour Divide passes.

And just so there’s no confusion over the Cutthroat’s intent, a screened-back, line drawing map of the course adorns the underside of the down tube.

Petervary’s Cutthroat is built around the stock frame, which will be available to the public later this fall.

But the Victor, Idaho native, whose course record of 15 days, 16 hours, and 4 minutes has stood since 2012, has customized the race rig to suit his fit and needs.

Petervary says he thinks the Cutthroat will be a noticeable step up from the Fargo Ti, the Salsa model he used for his record-setting run in 2012. And it is so comfortable that it almost feels like cheating.”When asked whether he expected to win or set a new record on this year’s Tour Divide, Petervary demurred. You can never say what will happen out there,” he said.
