BLOWFISH framekit - $1695
Forget everything you thought you knew about "floatation... The Blowfish takes things to a totally new level.
With clearance for up to 100mm rims and 5.05" 2XL tyres, very little else comes close.
We wanted a bike. that would float over the worst that you could throw at it. But we still wanted a bike... one that rode like a bike.
We're pround to present... the Blowfish.
The Blowfish is made from our very own custom drawn, double butted, 7005 alloy Dropbear tubing. (it's heat treated after welding and alignment to ensure strength).
Geometry wise, we designed the Blowfish to go where others fear to roll. So the geometry has been tweaked a little to perform better at slightly slower speeds.
To us, "Full Floatation" means that the Blowfish is capable of running the largest tyres, on the largest rims currently on the market. You might be happy running 4.0" rubber, but isn't it nice to know that you can go bigger if you want to later.

Unlike any fat bike you've ridden before. We designed the Blowfish to be ridden over any and all terrain.
The Blowfish is made from our very own custom drawn, double butted, 7005 alloy Dropbear tubing. It's heat treated after welding and alignment to ensure strength. Designed to handle the harhsest conditions and not miss a beat.
A bike like this, designed to be ridden with massive 100mm wide rims and 5.05" tyres, just wouldn't be right with a flexy QR at the rear. So we fitted the Blowfish out with a 197/12 thru axle to tie the back end together.
