Fat Bike Company, LLC Colorado Springs, CO Thursday, April 3, 2014   Borealis Bikes, the same brand that exploded into the fat bike market last fall, announced the first ever carbon fat bike frame designed specifically around the new RockShox fat bike suspension fork.  Borealis Co-Founder Adam Miller provides some insight: “Our vision with the ECHO was to create an entirely new class of fat bike that provides the rider with nimble shredability they just can’t find on another fat rig.” Named after Echo Park in northeastern Colorado, the new Borealis ECHO takes fat biking to the next level with a frame designed exclusively for the groundbreaking RockShox BLUTO fork.  Borealis worked tirelessly to produce the ultimate integration of fat bike technology and front suspension systems The Borealis design team’s explicit focus was to create a truly year-round fat bike to build upon the current, snow-oriented fat bike reputation.  The ECHO has met and exceeded this initial goal with suspension-tuned frame geometry that ultimately fosters the smoothest ride of any fat bike on the market, regardless of where your adventures take you.  Borealis has tested the ECHO in every condition imaginable—from the punishing trails of Moab to the backcountry of Alaska, the ECHO bounced with bold confidence.  Fat bike technology just changed gears, and Borealis aims to be at the forefront of this innovation. Here are the specs:
  • The ECHO can shred in all disciplines in mountain biking.
  • The ECHO is the first fat bike frame ever to be designed specifically around the BLUTO fork.
  • Fully guided internal dropper post routing.
  • Fully guided internal cable routing
  • Clearance for 4.8” tires on 100mm rims.
  • New 197mm rear spacing with 12mm RockShox MAXLE thru axle.
  • Ultra-stiff, fat, and rally-ready carbon frame.
  • 3 water bottle cage mounts for those Epic Adventures!
