The Echo Blizzard Special Edition is designed to dominate the trail. With the snow crushing 4.8 inch Bud and Lou tires, to the lightweight and durable double walled Carbondale carbon rims. We designed this bike to be the absolute best bike for the money, full XO1 build to shed some weight and provide the crisp and smooth shifting it is known for, carbon bar and post for vibration damping, and of course the Echo frame known for its comfortable ride, and geometry that is suitable for all trail conditions. You simply won’t find another bike with this quality of build and carbon wheels for this price. Stand out from the crowd and ride a Borealis Fat Bike!

Named after Echo Canyon in Dinosaur National Monument up in the northwestern boonies of Colorado, the echo is the first performance-oriented, full carbon frame designed around the brand new RockShox BLUTO fat bike suspension fork. The extreme lateral stiffness combined with geometry optimized for the BLUTO’s 100mm of travel truly revolutionized fat biking. We also spec 35mm clamp stems and handlebars on our top two build kit models; this new oversized standard is a perfect match for the extra-wide tires of fat bikes. Internal dropper seatpost routing is the cherry on top of the echo’s design features that make it stand out as a do anything, ride anywhere, year round adventure shredding machine. See the full specs for each build kit below.

Borealis offers four frame designs with unique fit and geometry to suit your every Fat Bike need. Begin by taking a rough size approximation on the chart below that is based on height, then select the corresponding bike with your fit needs by using the geometry chart further below. We recommend a similar fit to you mountain bike, so grab a measuring tape and dial it in.


Based on our research, riders at the heights below will usually take the corresponding frame size. If you’re at a transitional height that spans two sizes, look at the geometry chart to get the Stack and Reach you like based on other bikes you are comfortable on.


Stack and Reach are the fundamental fit elements, they are both measured relative to the bottom bracket. When choosing the Borealis that is right for you, it’s important to find a balance in these measurements to ensure the best performance.
