Reviews

Most fatbikes are built for one thing—getting riders across snow or sand. In that regard, they’re effective. But not many are fun to ride. They’re heavy and slow turning. The Beargrease is different.

…the Beargrease added a level of traction in super loose, steep switchbacks that is not found on standard mountain bikes. Eventually I rode to a high alpine area with large chunky rocks and loose conditions that the big tires added plenty of confidence, even where there was no trail.”

I got a chance to ride it a bit on singletrack, and really appreciated its weight savings over other fat bikes -- between that and its improved handling, it felt kind of like it was filled with helium.

A fat bike isn’t a guarantee that you’ll be able to ride through all snow, and make it up every climb. Some snow is just too deep to pedal through. But a bike like the Beargrease is a guarantee that you’ll at least be out riding in the winter through snow and having an awesome time doing it.
