Remember way back in the day when we called fat bikes "snow" bikes? Trek's Farley 8 has hit the mainstream and we could not be happier. There's nothing like ripping a fat bike over singletrack, regardless of the season. Roots, rocks, sand: they all disappear under you thanks to 3.8-inch tires and the 100mm-travel Bluto fork. And, yeah, the Farley is great in the white stuff, too. Trek's light aluminum frame is quick and nimble, and the tubeless-ready Jackalope wheels shed 4 pounds over other fat wheels, so you whip this thing around like it's nothing. The 1x11 SRAM drivetrain keeps it clean and gives you plenty of gears for serious adventure in literally any weather and Avid's disc brakes keep you always in total control. Now go get lost.
Broaden your fun threshold on Charge’s Cooler Maxi 1. The aptly-named Maxxis Mammoth 26 x 4-wide tires spread way out on 80mm-wide rims to deliver maximum traction on surfaces previously off-limits to bicycles, and its butted aluminum frame offers lightweight nimbleness in this truly all-terrain beast along with rack and fender mounts for added utility. And, the Maxi keeps a wide range of gears at your fingertips with a trustworthy SRAM X5 20-speed drivetrain. When your monster truck of a bike needs some help slowing down, call on a pair of Promax disc brakes to deliver sure stopping power. There is a reason why fat bikes have surged to recent popularity. Find out for yourself why everyone is going fat on the Maxi 1.
Cannondale wraps up a whole bunch of fun in their Fat CAAD 1. This monster truck brings it with a SmartFormed aluminum frame for a stiff, responsive ride that's also trim on weight, while Cannondale's Lefty FatMax fork brings 100mm of smoothing suspension to the table. Tubeless-ready Sun Ringle rims roll with confidence-swelling strength, and Schwalbe tires conform to practically any terrain with flotation and traction. SRAM's X01 drivetrain gives you an 11-speed set that goes up as well as it goes down. SRAM's Guide brakes are just what you need to bring the action to a swift, modulated stop. Cannondale supplies their lightweight handlebars, stem, and a comfortable saddle to make this a smash-ready bike that can go almost anywhere.
Looking for a fatbike without all the fat? Lightweight construction and nimble OutFront geometry make the FAT CAAD so agile and quick you’ll want to ride it all year long. Cannondale's Fatty-Fat fork is the one of the lightest chubby-specific objects ever to grace such a bike, and it delivers knife-sharp handling. Tubeless-ready Sun Ringle rims roll with confidence-swelling strength, and massive Kenda 26 x 4.8-inch tires gum to the trail with sticky traction and loads of flotation. Shimano and Sunrace make the spec on an 11-speed drivetrain with gear range to spare, and the Guide disc brakes are just what you need to bring the action to a swift, fluid stop. Cannondale supplies their lightweight handlebars, stem, and grips, along with a comfortable Fabric Scoop saddle to put you in tight command of this rotund rig.
