Sometimes oversized is the only size. The Fuji Wendigo 1.3 fat bike follows in the same vein as Fuji's other innovative and high-quality hardtail mountain bikes, save one glaring difference - it's absolutely massive, and legitimately earns the name Wendigo (meaning half-man, which is your part, and half-beast, which is the bike). Made from Fuji's proprietary aluminum and featuring PowerCurve bike geometry, the Fuji Wendigo is meant to be comfortable, powerful and an animal on the trail.
The Wendigo is tough enough to withstand the most adverse environments, whether it's a technical mountain trail or a cush fire road. It's constructed of A2-SL alloy with an oversized seat tube, S-bend chainstays for better vibration displacement, and Fuji's PowerCurve down tube. The PowerCurve places you in the best position for comfort, control, and pedaling performance. A rigid and tapered fork and frame rear triangle are equipped with Tektro mechanical disc brakes for maximum stopping power in virtually any condition.
The drivetrain features Shimano Altus RapidFire 3x9-speed shifters and an Altus Shadow rear derailleur, plus a Shimano SLX front derailleur and a Samox 44/32/22 crankset. An 11-34T Shimano cassette provides a wide option of gear possibilities, from grinding out a big ascent to throwing it into the 44x11 for a screaming descent down the trail.
Additionally, a set of burly Weinmann rims and massive Vee Bulldozer 26" x 4.7" tires let you run a lower pressure to great advantage. Try cornering or riding a berm on the Wendigo and you'll easily stick to it. Furthermore, the Wendigo really makes a name for itself where other bikes perform poorly: the snow and sand. That stability and wide footprint will make anything from sand dunes to billowy snow easy to navigate.
