A little history

The modern fat bike appeared in the middle of the 80’s, in Alaska, when a group of mountain bikers had the idea to create a 4 seasons bike to practice their sport. In the same period, we see it appearing in New Mexico where it is used to ride in the dunes.

In Quebec

In the last 5 years, fat biking has rapidly gained in popularity in Quebec. There are more than 100 sites to do it throughout the province.

Big, fat, oversized tires…

“When you pedal on the snow, you feel like you’re floating.”

The fat bike is a bike that is a little different from the others. Equipped with unique tires, the fat bike allows you to ride on different winter roads. In the summer, you can practice it on other challenging surfaces like sand.

The fat bike tires usually act as a suspension. Inflated to very low pressure, the tires absorb most of the shock for maximum comfort.

Besides the oversized tires, this type of bike is similar to any other bicycle.
