FATBACK CORVUS

* New 2019/20 SRAM DUB and AXS Eagle 12spd Build Kits and Frame Colours *

FAST, EFFICENT, BALANCED AND DESIGNED TO WIN (THE IDITAROD)!

The bike that Jeff Oatley, Heather Best, and John Lackey propelled to overwhelming record setting victories in the Alaskan Iditarod Trail Invitational, the granddaddy of all winter endurance races, The Corvus is an instant classic. Utilizing the greatest testing ground in the world (our back yard "Alaska"), the Corvus is optimized for stability and speed. Whether it's a two hour rip on single track, or a week long fatpacking adventure, the Corvus will handle it with ease.

THE NEXT EVOLUTION IN FAT BIKE PERFORMANCE

The all new Corvus represents 10 years of Fatbike development by Fatback Bikes of Alaska, culminating in the most refined carbon fatbike available anywhere. Years of prototyping in extreme conditions guided design. While many companies dove into the frenzy just a few years ago and try to dazzle consumers with claims of the lightest, fastest, premier, best, etc...Fatback advances our lead in the industry with real world improvements and innovations such as suspension corrected geometry for those who run suspension, while still maintaining a massive front triangle for frame bags, and providing a great standover height. The all new carbon fork includes Anything cage mounts, uses a 150mm x 15mm hub and offers incredibly precise steering. The chainstays have been shortened further to 450mm, making climbing easier, but still keeping the front wheel properly weighted. Of course, rack mounts are standard, why wouldn't they be? And three bottle cages are standard as usual (on sizes 16" and up).

CORVUS BUILD KITS

FALL 2019

(These official Build kits have been updated by FATBACK BIKES and RideFATbikes.ca - on 24 AUG 2019)


NOTE : All STOCK and MODIFIED Build weights will be within 0.25 lbs of actual completed bike weight, dependent only on manufacturing process deviations. For instance, a pair of mid-level economy tires can fluctuate as much as 350gr (0.75 lbs) from their “officially” listed manufacturer weight. We have seen this often with Terrene tires, and a few other select components.
