Introducing the 2015 Blizzard

April 09, 2014

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!

Ride Tuned Concept

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.
