Product Preview – Revelate Designs Wampak

We got our first look at an early prototype of the new Wampak, back in February 2015, during a visit to Revelate Designs headquarters in Anchorage. I thought the Wampak was a great idea that addressed cold weather hydration challenges, that anyone that’s ever tried to use a traditional hydration pack, in cold weather, is familiar with. Traditional hydration […]

Fat (video) Tuesday ♦ Flask Season

Garrett Olsen sent us a video to enter our wacky Becker Forty Below Bag contest back in December. I like this vid, because it reminds me of the early days of fat-biking. He calls his clip ‘Guiding the Flask’. I’m a fan of stickers and that’s probably why we’ve given so many of them away! Garrett […]

Heller Bloodhound Review by Evan LarSSon

  I arrived at the Fat-Bike.com fortress of solitude to take possession of the new Heller Bloodhound.  Heller is the newest addition to QBP’s lineup and I most graciously accepted responsibility to put it through some paces.  I squeezed the Heller into my eco-friendly compact shitbox and sped out into the Milwaukee night wondering about […]

Issi Pedal Review by Steve Meurett

The ground is covered with white-the first snowfall here in western Wisconsin. It won’t last to be sure, but it does get the heart pumping for fatbike season.  Actually, there is no “fatbike season”….the fattys roll all year, as it should be now-a-days. But, the snow does remind us that bikes, clothing and gear need […]
