Will it fit on my bike?
Yes, the Fat Bike Ski is compatible with nearly all fat bike and mountain bike forks. It's smoothest on a suspension fork, but rides fine with a rigid fork too. Specify the fork axle width that you’ll need when ordering the kit and we’ll get you the right parts. Additional adapter kits can be purchased to use your Fat Bike Ski on multiple bikes or forks. Changing the axle adapters is very easy. We’ll be developing a Lefty version soon too.
The Fat Bike Ski attaches to your fork axle and disc brake tabs. Simply remove the front wheel and front disc brake and mount up the FBS kit. Further installation instructions pictures, and videos will be provided soon.
how do i mount it?
Where can I ride it?
Anywhere with enough snow to cover the ground. Groomed singletrack, snowmobile trails, backcountry ski/sled zones and glades (with the right conditions), XC ski trails (with permission), DH ski trails (with permission or after they close). The Fat Bike Ski opens up lots of new terrain options so it's really up to you!
Is it easy to ride?
Yes, it’s actually easier than riding a two wheeled fat bike on the snow. The handling has been carefully designed to feel just like riding a mountain bike on perfect dirt. It’s easy to carve turns on your first ride and feels like there is a berm anywhere you want to turn!
The Fat Bike Ski can take you farther than a two wheeled fat bike on the climbs. It’s definitely better than a fat bike with two wheels when it gets deep or soft and you’re searching for traction. Instead of fighting to keep your front wheel on line and also maintain traction, the ski lets you focus more on pedaling.
How does it do going uphill?
Riding through 18 inches of powder is a blast when going downhill, around 6-8 inches of light snow is generally the most we can pedal through on the flats and 4 inches of fresh snow on the climbs. Tire choice, snow type, and rider enthusiasm will affect your results.
How much snow can I ride in?
Only the most progressive mountains load fat bikes on chair lifts at this point, but we hope that will change soon. Thank you Highland Mountain Bike Park in New Hampshire and Spirit Mountain in Minnesota! Some European mountains may be open to you as well, but ask ahead. We’ll be working to get a few more mountains open to Fat Bike Skis soon.
Can I load it on a chairlift?
Yup. The right setup might take this sport to a whole new level...
Will it work on my E-Fat bike?
Do you ship Globally?
Yes, we're happy to ship Fat Bike Skis anywhere in the world! Shipping costs will be calculated automatically when ordering. We will be establishing some international distributors for next winter too.
