It’s the fall trade show season and the new bike releases keep coming. Today we got word that Borealis is releasing its latest carbon fiber fat bike frame, the Crestone, this fall.
The new frame is said to be built to downhill bike strength standards yet is still 150 grams lighter than the Echo model. Because frame bags have become de rigueur with fat bike riders it has a reduced standover clearance to make more room in the center triangle. The geometry doesn’t change considerably compared to the Echo but there are a few millimeters here and there. There are four sizes available.
The Crestone will be available in two new color packages and two build kits, an XO1 build at $4,950 and an XX1 build at $5,850.Tweet Print
It’s two big announcements in one: First up, Borealis, the Colorado-based company that blew everyone away with a 21-pound fat bike last year, is set to release its new model, the Echo this weekend at Sea Otter. And as Steve Jobs would say, “there’s one more thing”—it will be available with the brand new RockShox Bluto fat bike suspension fork.Tweet Print
