Overview

Brand new for 2017, the Ithaqua combines fat bike versatility with race bike performance. The lightweight carbon frame features the same responsive Power Chassis as our XC race bikes, but with clearance for tires up to 5" wide. This allows it to float through snowdrifts and over sand dunes alike. Whether you're racing on groomers or trailblazing through untouched powder, the Ithaqua delivers the full fat experience without the weight.

Exploring a snow-covered trail in the dead of winter or cruising the beach under the heat of the summer sun, we are all-season cyclists.
