The Mukluk head tube angle and the short chainstay is designed to place the rider’s center of gravity further over the rear wheel. This location and combination of front and rear center is key to getting a fatbike that is stable, steers well in loose conditions, and still also feels nimble and agile despite the massive wheels and tires. A low bottom bracket height helps to keep the rider’s center of gravity low, and to make dabbing and dismounting easier.
Adjustable Ride Characteristics
The Alternator dropout delivers incredible drivetrain versatility. Run singlespeed or geared, QR or thru-axle, freehub or Rohloff. Set the Alternator dropouts all the way forward for a shorter wheelbase that results in quick and nimble handling, or set back for more stability – the power is yours.
Aluminium Frame & Carbon Fork
Top-shelf, double and triple-butted, heat-treated AL-6066-T6 tubing is used throughout the frame, allowing for a stronger and lighter overall frame than previous models. Additionally, the tubing is strategically shaped and formed for additional stiffness and strength optimization in key stress areas. When paired with the Bearpaw Carbon fork and its 150mm thru-axle you end up with a stiff frame, precise steering and agile handling. The fork also features our Three-Pack mounts for mounting Anything Cages or water bottle cages and can accommodate 5″ tires mounted to 100mm-wide rims. A full fat, Fatty!
