Winter Fat Bikes

surly1

Surly Krampus

While the big tires are impossible to ignore, and do in fact offer increased traction and some degree of float, don’t assume that these big tires are only for slow speed crawling. The Krampus’s frame has been designed with a long top tube and as short a rear end as we could get away with. This, when combined with the big, wide tires, results in a mad amount of rolling inertia and grip. It can go real fast.

surly2

Surly Pugsley

The Surly Pugsley was created to go where standard “all terrain” bikes flounder. The floatation and traction afforded by large-volume, low-pressure tires can get you over and through otherwise unrideable terrain…sand, mud, wet rocks and roots, ice and many kinds of snow.

specializedfatboy

Specialized Fatboy

The 2014 Specialized Fatboy Fat Bike combines a lightweight M4 premium aluminum frame and a carbon fork with 4.6 inch Specialized Ground Control tires for nimble handling in the most extreme conditions. Add in Tektro Draco 2 hydraulic disc brakes, and a Sram 2×10 drive train and you have a high performing dream of a fat bike.

Fat Bike Tires

knard

Surly Knard

The same tread as Surly’s Knard 29 x 3 inch tire, but on a 3.8 inch casing. The tread consists of closely spaced blocks designed to grab terrain and hold it hostage until it’s done with it. Made on the same casing as our Nate and Larry tires, these tires occupy a unique place in the line-up: fast fat tires. 27tpi casing, Kevlar folding bead.

bigfatlarry

Surly Big Fat Larry

Just when you though Fat couldn’t get any Fatter, along comes the Surly Big Fat Larry 26×4.5 120 tpi Folding Fat Bike Tire. The Big Fat Larry is the Larry jacked up on many, many donuts. Surly took the popular Larry tread pattern and applied it to a very large casing. This tire measures about 4.7 inches on a 100mm rim! What does this mean to you? Float, float, float, my friend.
