2020 – 9:ZERO:7 Lynx Carbon Fatbike News Release

Building on the Original Whiteout Carbon

The following is a news release from 9:Zero:7 Bikes…


Anchorage, AK. October 30, 2020 At 9:ZERO:7, we take fatbikes very seriously. In 2013, our Carbon Whiteout led the industry in high performance racing fat bikes and we wanted to make sure that our new Lynx was an improvement on that. We worked tirelessly for two years with many sleepless nights sending countless midnight emails. We went through multiple prototypes shifting the carbon layup, adjusting the ride quality, and tweaking the geometry one millimeter at a time. Our 9:ZERO:7 Factory Team spent an absurd number of hours riding, testing, and wreaking havoc on the prototypes. All this to make sure that the new 9:ZERO:7 Lynx would be hands down, the best fat bike on the market. We didn’t want to just make another fat bike, we wanted to introduce the best fat bike, and we weren’t going to stop until we made sure it was right. The 9:ZERO:7 Lynx is the fat bike that can truly do it all

With the new aggressive geometry paired with our BPI (Bike Packer Integration) the Lynx is equally at home on gnarly singletrack and on multi day adventures. All our BPI equipped bikes have strategically placed bolt mounts for bolt on frame and top tube bags. No more velcro straps to wear through your paint and carbon, our BPI compatible bikes provide an aesthetically pleasing way to carry all your adventure accessories. The new Lynx maintains the low standover height that 9:ZERO:7 bikes are known for, but updates to the geometry include:

  • Shortened 450mm chainstays
  • Shortened head tube 
  • Slackened 69 degree head tube angle 
  • Steepened 73.5 degree seat tube angle
  • Lengthened top tube to accommodate for shorter stems. 
  • Altered fork offset from 45mm to 48mm

This new geometry updates provide quick, nimble, and precise handling when leaning and maneuvering the bike while maintaining stability at all speeds. In addition to bike handling improvements, the bike fit and weight distribution on the Lynx have also been improved. This is largely due to the steepened seat tube angle and longer top tube, which helps keep weight on the front tire for better front to back balance to enhance flotation as well as improve front tire traction.
