Fat bikes: Full traction on any terrain
With huge 4 to 5 inch wide tyres, fat bikes offer almost twice as much traction as any other mountain bike. Originally fat bikes were developed as specialists for snowy pistes and sandy ground, because their plush tyres float on top of sandy, snowy and other types of terrain where all other wheels would fail. Fat bikes are not just popular in extreme conditions. Fattys also offer extreme comfort on the trails – even without much suspension. The frame, fork and wheels of fat bikes are made to special dimensions to accommodate their giant tyres.
