Riding Bluto - Sea Otter 2014
Given his grammar, I think he is addressing "many fatbikes". Granted he should have used a comma or a colon....

Riding Bluto - Sea Otter 2014
Seriously Foghorn Leghorn- I say I say think these things through! There is more than just the axle supporting the hub. The dropout also supports the hub, so there is one reason a smaller axle can work. Another reason (probably coincidental, since I doubt any engineer designed this. Just weight weenies) is that given the same torsional or side load on the wheel, a wider O.L.D. will experience less of a shear load at the axle. Draw a free body diagram if you don't believe me. Google free body diagram if your engineering experience doesn't give you any exposure to them.

ENVE, Ibis, Specialized - Sea Otter 2014
As silly as semi-knobby tires look, I want to see how they grip in corners.

Marzocchi's Prototype 320 LCR Carbon - Sea Otter 2014
About time someone slimmed down the axle where it sees virtually no stresses.

Introducing the Bluto - RockShox's New Fat Bike Fork
You do realize that the able sees virtually only shear loads at the point there the hub and dropout meet and an axial load from tightening when riding right? (Yes there will be a torque during the tightening process, but it will go away when you take your hand away from the lever) A dropout that holds the locknuts well will take away a lot of the shear loads as well. The axle could be relatively thin and be stiffer if the hub/dropout interface is designed correctly.
