Mukluk rolls on 26 x 4.8" wheels and tires—this huge tire delivers massive traction, stability, and optimum flotation on soft surfaces such as ungroomed snow or loose sand. The frame is constructed of high-modulus carbon fiber, which offers improved stiffness, better vibration damping, excellent durability, and weight savings compared to other frame materials. Mukluk’s geometry works extremely well in all conditions, whether it be riding groomed singletrack at your local trail, exploring a beach coastline, or embarking across the wild frozen expanses of Alaska.

This location and combination of front and rear center is key to getting a fat bike that is stable, steers well in loose conditions, and feels nimble and agile despite the massive wheels and tires. A low bottom bracket is also key to keep the rider’s center of gravity low and to make dabbing, dismounting, and remounting easier.
