FATBACK BIG SU - FAT BIKE

26” or 27.5”

The long-awaited, FATBACK BIG SU lightweight 4-season Alloy Fat bike wheelsets have arrived!

Hand-built and laced up with DT Swiss spokes and the FATBACK ALASKA EDITION SL Premium hubs, with EZO low drag, low temp bearings.

This will be an amazing alloy wheelset option for Fat bikes in winter, as the hubs are rated to roll smooth well below -30c, and have 5 bearings in the rear hub, and 6-pawl nearly-instant engagement system.

The University of Alaska did a  comprehensive study on these hubs and found them to be far superior to practically every other brand on the market, in cold weather rolling resistance.
