Fat Bikes were developed to ride in the wilds of Alaska originally and have quickly become popular with riders who live or spend time in snowy areas. Because of the Fat tires low air pressure can be used with a big volume of air in the tire. This gives us great traction in the snow and even on ice. Exploring snow covered trails on Fat Bikes has given a whole new meaning to winter riding, FUN!

- Layers are recommended for winter riding, you will be surprised at how warm you are while riding but having an extra layer for when you are stopped is good.

Winter gloves not mittens and a hat to keep the heat in are a must.
