Based on 2 reviews

Performance at its best. The all new Rhino FLT sets the standard for performance alloy fat bikes. Light weight, increased stiffness and superior handling in all conditions.

WHY MAKE THE RHINO FLT?

Because we always strive to make the best. We knew the Rhino was a great bike from the first ride, but not everyone needs or wants to be able to have a single speed. We started making the changes from there; we kept the chain stays at their shortest, added internal routing for a dropper post, and locked the engineers in a room until they came up with the best possible tubing profiles for this bike. Put it all together and the Rhino FLT was born.

I test rode all the major fat bikes and hated them because they felt truckish. The geometry on the bikes was wrong and too much weight was on the front wheel making it steer like a truck. I wanted a bike that felt like a mountain bike, not a fat bike. The rhino is not your typical fatbike. It is nimble quick and definitely not truckish. I specd mine with Shimano slx and I am impressed it shifts and stops as well as my Ibis bike specced with Shimano XT 11 speed. In the summer I switch out the 26" fat wheels for 27.5 Stan's Baron wheels. I have an incredible bike for bike backing and a great spare bike for my son or friend to ride. Totally satisfied with this bike and I now get why people love fatback bikes. Keep up the good work.

I have both the Rhino FLT and Skookum, but I set them up a bit different and love having both. My Rhino is set up rigid while my Skookum has a Manitou Mastodon fork. Like the Skookum, I ride my Rhino on a bit of everything. The rigid fork gives a direct and precise feel on technical lines. Most trials lines are easiest on a rigid and this bike can handle some pretty tough sections. It is also great for pumping through rollers and finding roots, rocks, and other obstacles on the trail that can be used to gain speed from pumping. The FLT frame saved quite a bit of weight over the last Rhino frame, and that is definitely noticeable on climbs and while maneuvering the bike. While it is not as light as the Skookum, it is a great option if you don't want to go carbon. While I like my Skookum just a bit more, I would be happy with either bike.

What it takes to be a Fatback FLT

The crew here at Fatback Bikes is always making tweaks to their personal bikes to make them just a little better; trying new tires, brakes, drivetrains… So naturally, we do the same with the products we make. We ask ourselves, "can we make is stiffer, lighter, more comfortable, and increase cold weather performance? Can we improve clearance for larger tires while maintaining narrow Q-factor?" Each model is designed for a certain purpose, we focus on what will make it pedal, handle and look better than ever. Each little aspect is contemplated to see what we can improve. With this dedication to improvement, we have released the new FLT product line focusing on lightweight, high performance and premium ride quality bicycle frames and components.
