Access Chinook Fat Bike - 2014If you haven't been paying attention to the mountain bike world in the last year, you may have missed the following trend: Go fat or go home. Fat bikes have landed in a major way and we couldn't be more proud to offer you our very own 2014 Access Chinook Fat Bike. Like its helicopter namesake suggests, it's as powerful as it is big. With a great spec and a full Chromoly frame the Chinook will make short work of challenging terrain like snow or sand.
The benefits of a fat bike may surprise you. A fat bike is just that; it's fat. With the added width and girth you'll immediately feel more stable. That stability translates into trail confidence. After all, you won't have a great time if the front end feels twitchy or squirrely. Once you get going, you'll notice something else: it's easier to get off the ground. It's like pumping your legs on a giant bike trampoline and landing on a big, soft cushy pillow. You won't get great height, mind you. You'll just pogo along if and when you choose like you've been getting off the ground since you were born. You might not think that a fat bike would climb well, because more weight does not usually translate into better climbing efficiency, but with such a large front wheel footprint, thanks to a lower tire pressure and 4" wide tires, the Chinook effortlessly claws up a hill without having to move around the saddle. It helps that the Chinook has a more forgiving triple crankset configuration as well. Plus, that lower tire pressure is a thing of wonder. Try cornering or riding a berm on the Chinook and you'll stick to it like white on rice. Additionally, the fat bike really made a name for itself where other bikes perform poorly: the snow and sand. That stability and wide footprint will make anything from sand dunes to billowy snow easy to navigate.
Finally, fat bikes are just plain cool. If you want a bike for dorking around on the trails and having a great time, then the Access Chinook is your ticket.
