Based on 2 reviews

If you want the best? Look no further. Have you ever dreamt of carving hard through a turn and almost dragging your grip in the dirt? The Skookum FLT will give you the confidence to try.

Skookum FLT - Fatter, Lighter, Stiffer, no Compromises.

With the explosion of fat biking off the snow and on to trails we were not satisfied with just bringing another a fat bike to market. The crew at Fatback wanted to stay ahead of the others and create the highest performance fat bike available. Our next logical step was taking the Amazing platform of the Skookum and making it even better. Carbon is a wonderful thing; we've chosen the best materials and have meticulously adjusted the layup to create a highly tuned perfectly handling ride.

I've had this bike for about a year now (coming from a Corvus) and it's just amazing. The Corvus was a very, very solid bike for me. No complaints, but the Skookum FLT has added even more fun to my riding. It seems to be a bit more nimble and snappy, it's ridiculously light and the geometry is just a little more dialed for the type of riding I like to do (steep ups and downs with a fair dose of tech). I'm looking forward to many more adventures on this bike!

This isn't a normal fat bike; it's one of the best handling, bar dragging, berm chewing, jump-happy good time machines I've ever ridden! If you are looking for a dedicated snow bike I'd suggest the Corvus but if you want a bike that rips in the summer too, this is the one. It's tempting to say that it rides kind of like a short travel long/low/slack 29'er but that's not quite right. It certainly fills that niche but having 4 inch tires allows you to lean the bike over regardless of sandy or blown out corners and take the fastest lines. The amount of grip is staggering and takes quite a few rides to get used to. Just be careful of over riding your skinny tire bikes after you get used to this! Throw in the pop you get off lips with a hardtail on big tires and you realize just how incredibly capable this bike is.

I HIGHLY recommend upgrading to carbon rims as in addition to climbing much better, it allows the bike to get through linked corners much faster than with heavy metal rims as you aren't fighting all that rotating weight.

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.
