We were introduced to fat biking while at Nordic Valley recently. They hosted a fun race at the base of their mountain as part of Frosty’s Fat Bike Race Series. They had demos available for us to test drive.
Cru took a corner going a little too fast and had a wipeout! OUCH! He blames it on the yeti. Take a look…
These fat bikes have 4+ inch wide tires! They give improved traction on dirt and float nicely on top of sand and snow. The wide surface area of the tire keeps the wheels from sinking.
Many of the demo bikes had front suspension but not rear suspension. I assume that’s because the squish of the tires allow for plenty of give and take care of the suspension.
These bikes have been showing up since 2006 but they’re becoming so popular now that manufacturers are bringing kid versions to the marketplace! SWEET!
