Snow, sand, debris or mud – nothing holds them back. You’re guaranteed not to topple over on these modified mountain bikes with tyres up to twelve centimetres wide. Originally invented in Alaska, fat bikes are now also used in winter in Davos Klosters – as ‘fun mobiles’ on the Pischa.

Perhaps it’s their over-sized thick tyres, sometimes up to 4.8 inches wide to be precise, that makes fat bikes such attention-grabbers. Or perhaps its the otherwise unusual season for biking. After all, as soon as most people have ‘hibernated’ their bikes for the winter – that’s when the fat bike season starts. And you can see people literally craning their necks to look when you cruise by on a fat bike. Riding enjoyment takes over once you’ve got used to their monstrous appearance. So much so that you’ll find yourself inwardly wishing that the snow would remain lying. Yes, you’ve read it correctly. These bikes ride especially easily on up to 30 centimetres of snow.

3 tips
for your first fat bike outing


Grip guaranteed

The rear wheel seldom loses grip on the ground when you’re climbing – even on snow. Slipping wheels can be quickly corrected downhill. The wide tyres are simply not a great help on ice.


Foresight is everything

While you’re riding, always look far ahead. That way you’ll always see the obstacles in plenty of time.


Do it like John Wayne

In tricky situations it’s essential that you get your upper body down, elbows out and legs wide in true John Wayne style. And don’t brake too hard on the front wheel, otherwise you’ll end up flying over the handlebars. That's all there is to it. So with these tips in mind – ride on!
