Fatboy Expert Carbon

We know that we're not blowing any minds when we say carbon is pretty cool. Compared to an alloy frame construction, it keeps weight down, does an exceptional job of absorbing bumps and vibrations, and it allows us to take more liberties to fine tune the ride quality. For these reasons, we made the Fatboy Expert Carbon. It features an immaculate carbon layup that performs the aforementioned, while also allowing us to integrate fully internal cable routing. And in keeping with the theme of blending performance with efficiency, we built the bike up with a top-notch, one-by drivetrain, SRAM's fan-favorite Guide brakes, and carbon wheels from HED.
