“This announcement is very exciting for me and my team as we incorporated entirely new construction methods with the Crestone.  We challenged ourselves to utilize an entirely new computer generated design-perfection process which helped reduce waste in manufacturing along with reduction of the frame’s weight.   It took countless months to fully test this frame and our team invested endless hours to ensure it is, geometrically, the finest carbon fat bike brought to market, to date, “added Kaczmarek  “We are excited to watch the global fat bike market ride the Crestone and are confident it will be very well received and recognized as one of the most advanced products in the marketplace. “
