Can-can jumps and other tricks are doable in the hands of the right pilot.

In many parts of the world, if you don’t ride a fat bike during the winter, you don’t ride at all. It is a tool that has its purpose, especially during the cold days of winter.

But is it just for getting around and getting some pedal strokes in? Or can it corner, jump, and more? Well, in capable hands, fat bikes are quite capable. And we’re not even talking full-suspension fat bikes.

No longer just for riding over sand or snow, modern fat bikes can more than hold their own on all sorts of terrain.
