Riding in wintery or wet conditions is not a problem for the Fat bike. The Fat tyres offer extra grip which helps prevent slipping on wet conditions. In addition, they will prevent sinking in mud or snow, making them the perfect all-round weather bike. Not only this, but they are perfect to ride in summer too. You can ride along the sand on a hot summers day with ease!
