| YOUR HOLIDAY STARTS FROM HERE

Feel like riding your bike also during the cold months, maybe along snow covered trails? It’s time to try fat bikes!

What is a “fat bike”?

A fat bike is a bicycle with over-sized tires.  The wide-rimmed tires and the low tire pressure ensure maximum grip and allow riding on soft unstable and snow covered terrain. The fat biked, although created already in 1989 by Simon Rakower, has exploded in popularity in 2014 when it entered among the novelties in the world of action sports.

The fat bike brings you where the mtb can’t

The fat bike can be considered the development of the conventional mountain bike and dedicated to adventurous riders wishing to try the thrill of riding safely on the trails non reachable with a regular mtb.  The fat bike can also be a great solution for expert bikers looking for an extreme adventure of a few hours, as well as long trips. For those who need a little “help”, we suggest the electric fat bikes, equipped with a battery powered motor, putting power to your pedal and helping you go further and faster with less effort.
