Interbike Outdoor Demo Report – Day 1

In the first 5 minutes of Day 1 of the Interbike Outdoor Demo we saw more fat-bikes than we saw all of last year. The number of companies entering the fat-bike market is exploding! All this means different directions, more choices and more fat for all!

The photos below are just the tip of the iceberg for this year. We’ll have more about many of these products over the coming days and have secured extended review commitments for several of the new and/or redesigned fat-bikes that we will bring you in the weeks and months to come.

We’d originally thought last year would see a significant jump in the number of fat-bikes that are coming to market and, while we were a bit optimistic, the train is coming into the station and this will be an exciting time for all lovers of fat-bikes.
