We recently got out on a ride on a Borealis Yampa Fat Bike that we had the pleasure of selling and building for a valued customer.
In short let us just say that this bike is a pure joy to ride.
We built her up with a Sram XO kit and HED Big Deal Wheels.
In doing so we were able to keep the bike under 23 lbs!! Yep, you read that correctly. Insane.
The bike is just awesome! It climbs like a race oriented hard tail while descending like a short travel dually. Due to the performance of the bike we would feel comfortable making this our daily rider if we had to pick one mountain bike to own. It just does everything well..and of course it has a big advantage in deep snow that would slow non fatties down.
We just added studded 45NRTH Dillinger 5 tires to this beast! Let’s just say that traction is not an issue!

My love for bicycles started in the the 1970’s with my first BMX race at a track my dad ran.
Since that time I have raced mountain bikes, road, BMX and cyclocross to many podium finishes including NORBA national victories and multiple series and state championship victories.
If it has two wheels or is a challenge, I’m into it.

I didn’t know geared fat bikes could get this light ….. Wow
Now put a Bluto fork on it and take it out to dominate every trail you can think of. a 25 lb fat bike that will destroy all comers. Then go sell all your 29ers. It’s good to be fat.
