Fat Biking

Shred The Trails on Two Wheels

With their extra-large tires, wide rims and unorthodox dimensions, Fat Bikes are specifically designed to traverse snowy trails—and any terrain that would mire ordinary bicycles. Extra tire tread adds grip and prevents the wheel from sinking into soft surfaces such as sand and snow. Fat Bikes require lower tire pressure than regular mountain bikes—10-15 psi or even lower. That significant squish reduces the need for suspension and allows the tire to “float” over surfaces rather than dig in.

Vermont’s vibrant biking culture has plenty of room for this new addition to the trails, and Fat Bike events are popping up throughout the state. On December 7, the Catamount Outdoor Family Center hosted the first annual Global Fat Bike Day, the official kick off of the Le Grand Fat Tour. Fat Bike enthusiasts enjoyed demos, races and a scavenger hunt.
