It’s been quite amazing to watch the rise in popularity of fat bikes over the last few years and with the current snow conditions across the country, fat bike riders are likely now having the most fun. It’s funny how pre fat bikes, winters were the time I thought most about trips south to escape the snow. Now sitting here in AZ, maybe some of our future trips need to go north for some snow play on bikes.
Fatback Bikes hails from Anchorage, Alaska where the brand certainly has the extreme conditions to innovate fat bikes. Fatback has done it again! 2016 has been a great year for Fatback with a trifecta of great new bikes and the new Corvus should be on everyone’s Christmas wish list whether they’ve been naughty or nice. The Corvus features loads of rack options front and rear as well as shorter seatstays. The latest iteration of the Corvus is a winner.
From Fatback Bikes: ” Today, Fatback Bikes releases a complete update of the record-setting Corvus. Built on its adventure racing roots across Alaska in the ITI (Iditarod Trail Invitational) and exploring the world. Fatback has made major improvements to the Corvus frameset, with a compete ground up redesign to keep it ahead of the competition including increased tire clearance, Anything cage mounts on the fork, refined geometry, increased stiffness, and now suspension corrected. In addition to those improvements, Fatback has also added the first XS (14”) carbon fat bike available as well as a 22” for the larger riders.
Building on the success of the Skookum FLT and Rhino FLT frames released earlier this year, the crew at Fatback is proud to continue its dedication to its industry leading design. When talking about the new Corvus, Fatback Bikes owner Greg Maytas said: “This is the finest riding, most stable and sure footed fat bike we have ever produced, the steering precision is amazing”. Considering the goal for the new Corvus was not to just make improvements on the Iditarod winning bike but to make a bike that anyone carving through the winter wilderness or down the Continental Divide will really have a blast riding, loaded with gear or not. The crew at Fatback Bikes is extremely proud of the final product of this new frame and fork.”
“Fatback’s dedication to brick and mortar dealers, which now account for more than 95% of their sales is shown as they continue to provide impressive options, strong selling features, and competitive pricing. Fatback Bikes Brand Manager FuzzyJohn Mylne said: “We can’t imagine doing any of this without a strong dealer base and the best fat bikes on the market”. The all new Corvus is the result of our 10 years of fat bike development combined with our knowledge gained from racing in extreme conditions across Alaska and our endless desire to build the most refined fat bikes available.”
