If your idea of riding a fat bike summons thoughts of plodding traverses, do yourself a favor and consider the possibilities of the lightweight aluminum Rocky Mountain Suzi Q. With a narrow Q-factor and 27.5 x 3.8-inch tires, the Suzi Q's nimble and fast character makes it perfect for crushing local singletrack as well as fat bike racing. Rocky Mountain packed a ton of value into the Suzi Q -30 Degrees, using SRAM's smooth and reliable NX 11-speed drivetrain and sure-stopping DB1 hydraulic disc brakes, strong and light aluminum cockpit components, and a rigid aluminum fork with all the braze-ons you need for loaded backcountry adventure.
Whoever labeled fat bikes as lumbering, heavy behemoths certainly didn't throw a leg over Rocky Mountain's Suzi Q RSL. With a narrow Q-factor and 27.5 x 3.8-inch tires, Suzi Q's nimble and fast character makes it perfect for crushing local singletrack as well as fat bike racing. Rocky Mountain gave the carbon-framed Suzi Q -90 Degrees RSL a king's ransom of XC-worthy components, with a Shimano XTR/XT 1x11-speed drivetrain paired to XTR hydraulic disc brakes, and follows up with sturdy carbon cockpit components and a stiff and light carbon fork for precision tracking over any surface.
When the snow flies, it's time to keep riding on Rocky Mountain's Blizzard. With a roomy cockpit, low bottom bracket, and slack head angle, Rocky Mountain applies modern mountain bike geometry to the fat bike platform for a truly shreddable ride. The Blizzard 10 puts value first with a rigid fork, mechanical disc brakes, and a Shimano 1x9-speed drivetrain for mechanically simple reliability in even the worst (or is that best?) fat biking conditions. Huge 26 x 4.5-inch Kenda tires paired with wide Rocky Mountain Speedhole 95mm rims provide all the traction you can handle. From sandy beaches, rocky slopes, and powder-fresh trails, the Blizzard is your ticket to ride anywhere you please.

Looking for a fat bike without all the fat? Lightweight construction and nimble OutFront geometry make the Fat CAAD so agile and quick, you'll want to ride it all year long. The slack head angle and long front center lets you get rowdy on the steeps, while the tight trail measurement keeps things crazy-nimble at slow speeds so you get the most out of that big, fat contact patch. Thanks to Cannondale's System Integrated cranks and offset chainrings, the FAT CAAD's Q-factor is up to 2.5cm narrower than the competition, so it feels like riding a bike, not a horse. The System Integrated crankset and offset Ai offset chainring also balance the short stays and allow for 2x compatibility with up to 4.8" tires!
