What is a Fat Tire Bike?
Fat bikes have wide, over-sized tires designed to move easily over areas with low ground pressure, such as snowy, sandy or muddy terrain. If you live in a place where biking is limited by harsh weather conditions like these, a fat bike may be the perfect solution to give you more time on two wheels. A fat bike is made to endure wet weather and unstable ground conditions to provide smoother rides over soft terrain. You may lose a little speed, but the extra width of fat bike tires allow you to float over ground that would otherwise be off-limits for bikes. Their rugged reputation doesn't mean fat tire bikes can't be ridden all year round – in fact, more and more people today love taking the laidback, sturdy style of a fat bike to city streets and beyond.
