With dual suspension, dual batteries, and an overpowered mid-drive motor, the bike is perfectly capable of carrying staunch adventurers back to nature.For fire roads and even commuting to the trail, you’re in the right place with this beastly heavy bike.
FAT-HS as a Range Champion
In my case in Salt Lake City, I could commute about 10 miles to the trail, bike for about 10 miles in the thickets, and make it back home using full throttle all the way. Any other bike I’ve aimed at taking on those trails required planning, shuttling, or downright non-electric pedaling to ensure I could make the whole trek.
FAT-HS as a Commuter Bike
Aside from the accessories, commuting on the FAT-HS would be difficult, since the bike would beckon you to jump it off into the trail somewhere, making you very happy, and very late. You’d totally crush that commute though.
FAT-HS Time to Nitpick
I wish this bike had a torque sensor instead of the cadence pedal assist. This is a feature that turns on the bike as you pedal. The cadence pedal assist feels like a throttle activated by your feet, doling out power based on pedal spinning speed.
