The 2014 KHS 4 Season 1000 Fat Bike mountain bikes are designed around a 4″ width tire that runs at ridiculously low pressure, helping you float over snow, ice, sand, and loose terrain. These bikes aren’t just for winter; many people use them for all sorts of offroad riding year round.

Both models (1000 and 3000) are based on a 6061 aluminum frame, chromoly fork, and 26 x 4.0″ tires.  The Four Season 1000 is a 2×9 speed drivetrain with SRAM X5 and X7 components, and Tektro disc brakes.
