Fat Bike

At a glance

The 2016 Specialized Fatboy Trail is an Fat Bike mountain bike. It has RockShox suspension and a SRAM drivetrain. The bike is part of Specialized's Fatboy range of mountain bikes.

Fat bikes sometimes get a bad rap as being just for the snow or the beach. This idea bums us out, though, because the characteristics of are Fatboy lend themselves perfectly to trail riding. That’s we purpose-built the Fatboy Trail for the rigors of trail riding. The fat wheel system and geometry work in tandem to keep you planted and run it wide open, while an air sprung suspension fork from RockShox does the heavy lifting when it comes to absorbing chatter and bumps. And when you factor in an efficient one-by drivetrain and powerful brakes, you get a bike that’ll help you find your limits on the trail and keep on coming back for more.
