There are places in this world ordinary bikes can’t take you. And when every ounce counts, when every pedal stroke drives you further into the wild, get there on Borealis Crestone. The lightest and toughest carbon fatbike on the market lets you follow northern lights deep into a Wisconsin winter as part of the 42K Soltice Chase, or pack it up for a blitz across the tundra – the Crestone is the premier choice for fatbiking fun.
As fatbiking differentiates itself, carbon rigs are a way to outdistance your fellow riders – both at the trailhead and when deep in the bush where no trails exist. The Crestone is the elite choice, and it comes in two builds for the riding and spec you prefer. XX is the lights-out, blinged-out best – race-ready and trail-tested; the XO1 maintains the outstanding performance at an attractive price point.
