Afat tire bike is an off-road bicycle with over-sized tires, typically 3.8 in (97 mm) or larger and rims 2.6 in (66 mm) or wider, designed for low ground pressure to allow riding on soft unstable terrain, such as snow, sand, bogs and mud. 

Some say the first fat tire bikes were some of the first mountain bikes with big "balloon tires", some say the first fat bikes were found in Alaska in the 90s, some say they were invented to gain a competitive edge in ultra-sport races....either way, fat tire bikes are fantastic for off-roading on the beach, in the snow, bogs or mud, allowing you to adventure where your regular thinner tire bikes cannot. Thus the reason we here at AdventureBikes.com are HUGE enthusiasts. 

So take a look at our selection and let us know if you have any questions!

I can’t want to get back to hanging out with friends - one thing that I love doing with my friends is bike riding and now that we all have e-bikes, I’m excited to ride further than we have before.
