Cons Moderately heavyHeavy, expensive-ishBudget component spec, excessive handlebar backsweepExpensive, wide seat stays--calf rub, tall front endHas a speed limit, not exciting
Bottom Line Capable and well-rounded, the Yukon 1 is the Best Overall fat bike in the testThe versatile and playful Kona Wozo has modern geometry, front suspension, and a solid all around performance that you can enjoy year roundThe carbon framed Salsa Beargrease Deore is lightweight and a solid all-around performerThe Borealis Telluride is a comfortable and quality fat bike with an interesting geometryA mid-pack performer, the Mukluk SX Eagle doesn't stand out from the crowd but is still a solid fat bike
