The bike is easy to handle and confident to control over roots, rocks, and bumps. There’s not much the 4-inch tires can’t float over.

The stock 32 x 11-34 gearing allows a young rider to negotiate most terrain. For longer, steeper climbs a larger cog may be desired.

Fat bikes are about the freedom to explore new places with the amazing efficiency of a bicycle and the Fatboy 20 delivers that to the most enthusiastic explorers of all. What kid doesn’t love the beach? or snow?! Ride there and all your favorite trails too. Where will you go?
