Balthazar | Carbon Fat Bike

Lightweight. Fast. Stunningly Attractive.

Meet Balthazar, the carbon fat bike that ignited the BBCo revolution. More than just a lightweight fat bike with stunning good looks, Balthazar performs like a beast on command. Be it fat bike racing or adventure riding, Balthazar’s aggressive geometry, weightlessness, and sheer versatility makes it one of the best fat bikes on all levels. Balthazar doesn’t just maximize your riding potential. It allows you realize your human potential.

 

One might say Balthazar succeeds the industry’s leading carbon fat bike technology by leaps and bounds. How? What was once only viewable by spy satellite, Balthazar is the byproduct of three years of testing, research, and constructive criticism. The end result is the ideal mix of utility, speed, good looks, speed, durability, lightweight, speed and more good looks. It's also fast. This isn't just a carbon fat bike that replaces your old aluminum fat bike. It's the bike that can replace your 29er, too. We've stuck with 197 rear hub spacing so you can run five inch tires front and rear, a 150mm front hub so you can use your ricoCHET and Industry 9 hub with a Bluto or our Blitzen fork. The geometry is all about quick handling, sharp climbing, and the ability to fit every rider well.
