2015 Rocky Mountain Blizzard Fat Bike

It's natural to follow up on the release of the RockShox Bluto fat bike suspension fork with an actual bike... and guess what, you don't have to wait. Because here we are as the seasons change and Canadian company Rocky Mountain Bicycles announce the 2015 Rocky Mountain Blizzard.

It's quite a moment for the fat bike class, as 2015 sees it move from being the darling of the smaller hand-built companies to become part of the offering for an internationally distributed brand like Rocky Mountain Bicycles.

Rocky Mountain Bicycles press release:
Designing a frame to clear the maximum tire width, while still maintaining the legendary playful geometry that Rocky Mountain is known for, is no easy task. Engineering specifically around a suspension fork meant creating an axle to crown height that optimised the additional length, while achieving a headtube angle aggressively marked at 68.5°.

Keeping tradition at hand, our signature FORM aluminum was passed down from the Vertex – ensuring a lightweight construction while maximizing the widest 4.7” tire possible. The overall goal was simple; create a true “mountain bike” feeling Fat-Bike in order to maximize fun in soft trail conditions. By maintaining a shorter- than-average top tube, we are able to make this goal a reality.

  • Wide 4.7” tires provide optimised traction and stability across snow, sand, and soft trails, giving rider the opportunity to climb steep terrain and navigate Mother Nature’s natural terrain park
