Magura brakes were more than enough stopping power, especially
with the quad-piston MT5 calipers on the front brake and MT4 dual
piston in the rear. It has great modulation and enough power to
lock up the wheels if you wanted to.
Fat bikes are an acquired
taste for some—not just in
appearance but in ride quality
as well. If you ride on off-cam-
ber singletracks, the fat bike
ride might not be for you. The
massive, round tires basketball
right off the trail, but if you ride
in rutted trails, these same
tires tend not to get wedged
in. They also have traction
for days in sandy conditions,
whether that’s sandy trails or
on the beach, and in snow.
Drop these down to 5 psi and
there’s practically no surface
they won’t tackle.
Off-camber ;re roads are
;ne, but off-camber singletracks can be really rough
with these big tires.
