What is a fat bike?
A fat bike is a type of mountain bike with larger and wider tyres, designed to provide traction and reduce shock on uneven or rough terrain. This means they can be taken just about anywhere offroad, and can even be used on sand, ice or snow.
Why use a fat bike?
A fat bike is most useful if you’re planning on going offroad, or on unusual surfaces. Riding a regular bike through these areas will cause a considerable amount of discomfort, rattling and bounce. This is not only uncomfortable, but is more likely to cause injury while damaging your bike in the process. Fat bikes absorb shock from uneven terrain, delivering a smooth ride no matter where you’re taking it.
Are fat bikes good for long distance?
The fat bike’s strength is in its longevity and long-term use. The denser tyres will make long distances not only more bearable, but will be safer for the bike and provide a greater amount of protection
Are fat tire bikes easier to ride?
Fat tyres can be difficult to manoeuvre due to its heaviness and size, and new users may struggle with turning the bike. However, Progear’s fat bikes have been constructed with lighter alloy frames and high-quality components to assist in their manoeuvrability, making them much easier to ride.
Are fat bikes good for heavy riders?
While Fat Bikes have the same maximum weight as regular bikes, they’ll be able to handle a greater amount of stress and shock. The thicker tyres will provide a more pleasant riding experience, and the frame will also be rated to a higher maximum weight. This makes them ideal for heavier/taller riders, or when carrying extra weight.
