Fatbike: a mountain bike with fat tyres

FatBikes come from Alaska; although the first design was created by the French cyclist Jean Naud in 1980. It’s truly an all-rounder: weather or tracks conditions do not matter. FatBikes stand out during winter when tracks are covered by a light snow layer: no one is better than it for this! As you will see, there are not many flat trails around the valley of Chamonix. You will be happy riding an Electric Fatbike!
