Utah Trikes present the Army Green Quad. Surly Clown Show wheels, Lou 4.8 tires all around, Avid BB7 disc brakes, now this is taking Fat Biking to a whole new level. Check out some of the specs on this thing here: http://www.utahtrikes.com/RECENTTRIKE-4185814_CatrikeCat-4QuadbyUTCusto.html
Rim Weight: 480 grams
Width – 85mm wide
HED is building all Fat Bike rims in house.
The dealer will need to call 651 653 0202 for a RA number. HED isn’t responsible for lost hubs that are sent without a RA number.
Hubs need to be 135mm front and at least 170 mm rear. 190mm hubs in the rear will work as well.
These rims will work with or without tubes with any tire from 3.8″ to 4.8″ wide. The 85mm rim width is an ideal size for all widths of fat bike tires.
MSRP: $1599 per set of rims
$1999 per complete wheelset with Borealis FH1 hubs, double butted spokes, and colored alloy nipples.
Utilizing the same geometry as the race proven 9:ZERO:7 aluminum frames, the Whiteout excels in the most challenging environments on earth.
The Whiteout frame uses a 197mm rear dropout spacing to work in conjunction with a 12mm thru-axle 190mm rear hub. This gives unmatched strength and stability. By utilizing 197mm spacing, the Whiteout can be built as either a super light race bike with “narrow” wheels, or a high performance adventure rig with the widest fat bike rims and tires on planet.
The Whiteout frameset is designed in conjunction with the new 9:ZERO:7 190mm hub set. The rear hub is completely convertible, so it is compatible with both the aluminum 190mm and carbon 197mm frames.
Frame weight is 1340 grams.
- Custom ENVE Carbon Tubeset
- Rear Spacing for 4.7″+ tires
- 100mm BB Shell

Every month I find the world of fat bikes getting more and more interesting. Below is the latest creation from Carver bikes, the TRANS-Fat full suspension fat bike.
“A project that was close to a year in the making has finally concluded with our first production TRANS-Fat. The TRANS-Fat was originally created as a custom bike for a customer. Thankfully, the customer was willing to wait as we diligently worked out the quirks with one of the world’s first production full suspension fat bike frames. The resulting bike rides like you might think: smoooooth….”
“It is great to see a long-term project come to a successful end. After the final photo shoot the bike was packed up and shipped off to a very happy customer. After riding several versions of the TRANS-Fat, we can say it is an absolute blast to ride. At first it may seem a little too soft, mostly because you have added four inches of rear wheel travel to an already aired down 4″ rear tire. But after the initial squish factor fades, you realize how much this bike rips. Climbing, descending, cornering…the bike NEVER loses traction. Maybe not the fastest bike up the climb, but the TRANS-Fat opens the door to climbing trail sections you never thought possible.”

Wölvhammer - The pinnacle of winter cycling footwear.
Our vision for the Wölvhammer transcended traditional cycling footwear and originated from the conceptual standpoint of a mountaineering boot. On the inside we max out the insulation package with 200g Thinsulate on the forefoot and NASA-approved aerogel in the insole to block cold cleats. On the outside, 1000-denier Cordura and waterproof-breathable Sympatex block moisture and manage perspiration. For deep snow, easily add knee-high gaiters using the dedicated hook on the toe box. And of course, the Vibram sole is ready for any SPD-compatible cleat of your choice. These are the finest winter cycling shoes ever made.
