A New Class of Fat Bike

With suspension-specific design, agile trail-bike geometry, and a truly capable parts spec, the Blizzard delivers legendary Rocky Mountain ride quality on snow, sand, and anything else you get yourself into. Ride out the storm!

How RTC™ is Applied to the Blizzard

The overall goal was simple: create a true “mountain bike” feeling fat bike for fun in soft conditions.

It was no easy task to design a frame that clears the huge 4.7” tires while maintaining the playful geometry that Rocky Mountain is legendary for. With a suspension-corrected 68.5° head tube angle, neutral chainstays, and shorter-than-average top tube, we were able to make this goal a reality.

Our signature FORM ™ aluminum was applied from the Vertex for rugged, lightweight construction.

 This sounds weird to say out loud, but that is the first fat bike that I would actually consider riding. Maybe it's because it looks less like a fat-wheeled monstrosity and more like a traditional aggressive hardtail. I'm not sure.

 Joking or not, you are right WAKI. When you hardly have enough money to live from, all you care about is that you have a bike that actually works. Then it doesn't matter if it has top end parts or budget parts, or how it looks: all you will care about is being able to ride.

And no matter of you're rich or poor, that is still the most important thing about a bike. The rest are just nice little extras.

 Mattin - I am perfectly aware of both sides of that "joke", it makes me smile twice. I just bought freaking expensive carbon rims and freaking expensive Schwalbe tyres to them. Before the purchase I pictured the feeling I experienced by riding super light but narrow wheels, God - that acceleration! Every sprint and pumping effort gets rewarded immediately! Earlier I had heavy but wide steady wheels, damn how more confidence I had compared to those wobbly light ones! - and I thought - God how awesome knew they will be put together! But well I also remembered the times when I had little money, a hardtail with 100mm Manitou Black fork, truly shitty wheels and Vbrakes. I was so irritated by getting flat tyres all the time, that I was riding double ply tyres, with DH tube in the rear, and to top that - I carried a car pump in my back pack! I had no money for spare tubes. A spare tube costed 1/5th of my week budget at the university! So I took all that and 10s of patches with me on all day rides, so in case I flatted I could get back to riding ASAP.

Another story is, my latest fascination with high altitude climbing. I watch movies of Poles climbing 8000m peaks in Winter in equipment that would make most people laugh. Dun jackets your grandma wouldn't wear, welders glasses instead of fancy 4+ photochromatic custom glasses or goggles. The most basic climbing gear. No one has ever repeated most of their routes up to this day and it was over 30 years ago. Some of those blokes may have had gigantic egos, but they had ZERO bling factor. If I look at some hikers thes days going to some easy via ferrata, dressed in space monkey suits with ti carabines and ice axes with molded carbon handles, then as much difference as that equipment makes, it is just laughable.

So yes, light weight, expensive stuff is making a difference but also unless one is a sponsored racer it is wankers treat to a great degree. Most of us buy that stuff for COMFORT.

 Cool bike but doesn't $1,400 seem a bit steep for a standard ridgid frame that is just wider for the fat tires?

 The only thing "standard" about a fat bike is the seat post and head tube. Everything else is custom for wider hubs and wider tires. So it's not a standard frame by any means.

 I have passed by 3 or 4 dozen fat-bike riders over the last 2 years. The place i ride is very fun; all the trails are named after famous rollercoasters because riding them feels similar to being on a coaster. If you wait at the end of these trails you'll see big smiles on people who just finished one. But, I have never seen a smile on any of the fat-bike riders, ever. They look exhausted or frustrated and most of them are obviously out of shape. Here in the midwest I cant see the need. They dont ride thru snow thats not frozen, they cannot be ridden in soft sand. In my opinion fat-bikers, in my area, are choosing them more as a statement than as a tool for enjoying riding. But, I want to thank them, because the 4 or 5 guys who are dedicated have smoothed out our very rocky trails, and they have never been in such good shape. Thanks, you chubby posuers. I'll stick to my Fuel EX and continue smiling.

 I imagine the next bike thing in DH will be 650B/29er wheels equipped with 4.7inch tyres. When it takes off, I take full credit Smile .
  • 1 0
 Already on its way. Last year my local shop built up a custom 29er fat bike. Frame came from a frame builder in Sun Valley, wheels and tires from Surly (I think). Thing was really sweet.
  • 2 0
 Surly Krampus/ECR... 29er Plus they're calling them. Its a 700C x 3 inch wide tire, so the effective diameter is close to 31 inches. They're actually less useful on snow that a 26 x 4.0 is (which is about 29" diameter).

 Fatbike season is almost done and there seems to be a lot of fatbike articles recently..At this time of the year what I want is infos about ''regular'' mountain bikes and event etc. EXCEPT for any kind of info about wheel sizes.. I had an overdose of this.

 Can't see the need for suspension, at least most times I go fat biking in the Ottawa Valley its -20 to -30. From commuting on my RS sector I can assure you suspension don't mean a thing at those temperatures. Besides isn't the 5" tire big enough to soak up the bumps? I ride snowmobile trails and Kanata Lakes on a Salsa Mukluk all season long and have never thought that suspension would be required.
  • 2 0
 I tend to agree but we have more gnar and tech on the trails in the Rockies. The suspension argument is the same with any bike, it's better to have than not...but the cost vs. reward isn't there for fatbikes just yet.
  • 3 0
 There are a few folks in the Ottawa region with suspension forked fats already, it helps with frozen in rut chatter in the hands which can be important when you're riding along at 15-20kmh as an average for an hour or so. I just hope rockshox got the seal material right, a little "shrinkage" in really cold temperatures are enough to cause leaks. Also I'd assume its a coil fork as air chamber pressure would change too much between inflating in warm house and then going out riding.

Ya know the obvious thing here is that they'll be a Fat RS-1 variant for sure now if Rockshox is making a conventional right-side up telescopic fork. Also to curse existing fat owners... the Rocky has whole new dropout spacing...

 Cornering a niche market of a niche market, no? Does anyone else feel that the supply is starting to out weigh the demand on fat bikes? This trend has fixed gear bike bubble written all over it.
  • 1 0
 Not sure about that, I personnally doubt this is a niche, figure that there are a lot of terrains where only a fat can go (sand, deep snow, deep mud, swamps, etc.) thus greatly extending the range of rideable areas.
Plus there are a lot of countries with big winters where a fat would really extend the riding period.

Moreover they seem to be damn fun and I can tell you I know quite a bunch of guys that would love to own one if they would have the cash (me included).
  • 1 0
 I think it depends on where you live. I live in Toronto, and I can't wrap my head around buying a $1700+ bike that I would only ride for maybe 4 months out of the season. Furthermore, I can't see people who live in warmer climates using one as their "go to" ride over a MTB. I completely agree with you on your point of, extending the range of ride-able areas and the benefits of owning one where winters are long. However, that still seems like a small part of the cycling market and not enough demand for every major company to jump on board.
  • 1 0
 Fair enough, maybe people will only keep fatbikes for special terrains or maybe they will get more and more popular up to the point where some riders might use them as their main ride...who knows.
  • 1 0
 I'm wondering how well you can feel the difference between a good and a not so good suspension fork on a fatbike. Would the tyres not absorb most of the stuff anyways? It could even absorb the mistakes of fork, like when the rebound is too quick, or when the fork bottoms out.

 Other than the mineral oil brakes, it looks pretty sweet (unless Shimano has improved sub-zero performance of their brakes). In most situations mineral oil works fine but I'd expect a winter bike to be ridden in winter conditions.

This one here, though, she's a beast, but she don't look too bad. There's a lot to be said for presentation. Maybe it's all the black. They say black's very slimming. Smile

On the real though, do you want a 4" travel fork when you've got a 4" travel tire on there?
  • 1 0
 I'm all for it, the price is a wee bit steep for me but I really like the huge tires. Now is anyone out there making these tires studded? The trails we have here are ok for riding but as you come down in elevation you eventually get to an area of the forest where there is a big canopy of trees above you and pretty much pure ice on the trail, having a studded tire might help you ride it out in this situation as most if the ice is off camber compared to the trail. Even walking on this stuff in the spring is really difficult with ski poles.

 Ok, can't argue, this bike looks cool. I prefer x-country skiing in the winter.

  • 8 0
 No, but they're very well-suited for riding in soft conditions such as snow. They are also great for riding in deep sand.
  • 5 4
 I am also pretty sure they work great in riding off-piste due to gigantous roll over and grip. Mountain Biking is strongly bound to the trail. If it isn't there, you must build it, but what if... you could ride efficiently outside of the trail? Remember that vid with Agassiz descending a cluloir in the high alpine? Those Vertriders blokes descending super sketchy foot trails in the Alps? People constantly look for new ways to ride a bike. I remember when me and my friends found that 10 minute long wooded mountain side, that did not have that much fallen trees on it. We would race down right through the forest floor with unlimited line choices. Just as you do on skis or snowboard.

A birth of a new kind of freeride I sense...

 I've had some of the funnest times on my remedy in the snow. Overtaking & carving past sledgers was a blat. Plus your bike stays super clean and it doesn't hurt when you fall off. Yes, I would love this, unfortunately I live in a country full of drizzle not powder. As you say it's another way of riding a bike and increases the range of the MTB.

And yeah, fat bike biathlon in the winter olympics?! Or fatbike vs snowboard DH.....bring it on

 Anything soft like sand, mud, really loamy dirt, etc. Also with the right tires (ie the ones that suck in snow because the tread is too shallow) they do REALLY well on rock because of how large the contact patch is. You can climb some ridiculously steep slickrock trails on them (they'd work well at Moab for example).
