Beargrease is a fat tire bike built to go faster than you knew fat tire bikes could go. The super-light frame and fork and the sure-footed rollover of 27.5 x 4.0” wheels and tires cover challenging terrain quickly.

Versatile frame and fork mounts let you carry everything you need for the backcountry. Test yourself in a snowy endurance race or pack your camping gear and embark on a long-distance overnight bike trip


Overview

Our inspiring review is coming soon for now, here is what Salsa has to say:

When you combine race-bike technology with fat-tire-bike capability, you get Beargrease. We designed this machine for the world’s toughest winter races, but it still knows how to have fun on snowy and winding singletrack. The carbon fiber frame and fork minimize weight and maximize power transfer. The extra diameter of 27.5” wheels offers more momentum and rollover capability than 26” wheels.

Frame and fork mounts for extra bottles and cargo make it easier to gear up for your long days out or even overnighters. Add Shimano’s Deore 11-speed components, and it all adds up to one of the best carbon fat tire bikes out there, whether you’re a racer or just enjoy the feel of a fast and light fat tire ride.
