However fervent a biker you might be, cycling over sand, snow or mud is not recommendable – unless you have a LEBOWSKe Electric Fat Bike. Made to last and conquer, this bike has all it takes to put other two-wheelers to shame, so let’s have a look at the beast, shall we?
Created by well-known cutting-edge bike maker Felt Bicycles, this tough-looking two-wheeler is designed to conquer the harshest of risky terrains out there and it will take all potential ground obstacles in its stride. Thanks to the ideal weight distribution of its award-winning Bosch Bosch Performance eDrive (available in four different boost levels with the total 350W/20 mph output) combined with Bosch 400Wh frame type battery pack and SRAM PC-X1 X-Sync chain with powerlock, this beastie bike provides ultimate control, rider comfort and no-sink traction when cycling over deep sand, snow or mud. With LEBOWSKe, conquering any challenging surface you come across during your ride becomes as easy as 123.
The LEBOWSKe Felt electric MTB fat tire frame with Bosch-specific double-butted 6061 aluminum construction is fixed to a disc-brake specific ControlTaper headtube and fitted with full internal cable routing and 190 x 12mm Maxle dropouts. The fork is a Felt fat tire- and disc-brake specific eyeleted rigid alloy tapered steerer with an oversized hollow crown, Hydroformed 6061 aluminum blades and 150 ×15 Maxle-style dropouts, while the brakes are SRAM Guide RSC hydraulic discs with 4-piston caliper and centerline 180mm 6-bolt rotors, paired with some SRAM Guide RSC hydraulic brake levers and SRAM XO1 11-Speed X-Actuation MMX mount trigger shifter.
With the SRAM XO1 11-Speed X-Horizon rear derailleur, Felt MTB SL 3D-forged aluminum stem with 4-bolt handlebar clamp, SRAM CS-XG1180 11-Speed cassette and Felt 3F Carbon Riser handlebars with Felt XC trail single aluminum clamp lock-on wing-style grips, LEBOWSKe is the toughest and most reliable electric-powered bike you can hope to find – and it’s comfy too, thanks to its WTB Silverado Race saddle with DNAX padding and CrMo rails.
Furthermore, the RockShox Reverb Stealth Dropper seat post with internal remote cable routing is coupled with Felt double-wall fat tire lite rims 26” x 80mm topped by 32-hole forged aluminum hubs with sealed bearings and 2.0 / 1.8mm double-butted stainless steel spokes for maximum stability and control even during prolonged off-road rides. The wheels are shod in 26 x 4.0″ Schwalbe Jumbo Jim fat bike tires with Presta Valve tubes and the whole set is rounded of with a Felt Electric MTB Bosch-specific crankset. Whether or not a fervent mechanic or cycle expert who has tested all these superior bike components, the message behind this lengthy list of detailed specs is quite simple: you can rely on LEBOWSKe e-bike to beat all obstacles you bump into during commute, off-road rides, snowy hillside conquests and leisurely beach cycling.
Available in three different sizes (16 inches for small, 18 inches for medium and 21 inches for large bikes) and with the option to throw in a handful of customizable upgrades, LEBOWSKe is available in gloss brushed or raw clear tones with satin black or flouro red finish.
