Fat Bikes are not for everyone, but for some, they are the epitome of freedom, individualism and adventure. With the Argon FAT, we have a Fat Bike hardtail in our range that not only accommodates the thickest tyres in 26-inch format (up to 4.5″) but also has great trail crushing geometry. You wouldn’t be the first who only wanted a winter bike, but fell so in love with the way this trail-fatty rides that you ride it all year round. Whether at the Iditarod Trail Race across Alaska, heavily loaded adventure bike packing in the most remote regions of the planet or simply on your local trails – with the Argon FAT you’ll always have a reliable partner at your side.
The fat you constantly encounter in everyday life consists of glycerine and monocarboxylic acids, is of vegetable or animal origin and can be saturated or unsaturated. Argon FAT, on the other hand, consists of AlZn4.5Mg1.5Mn, is guaranteed not to lead to weight gain, even when consumed excessively… and is simply animal.
We didn’t just want to make a fat bike, we wanted to create one that would be fun on any trail all year round. The first step was to understand what makes a really good fat bike and then to think one step further. With up to 110 mm wide tyres, which are run at very low air pressures, the Argon FAT takes uneven ground in its stride and ‘floats’ over soft surfaces like sand and snow.
It opens up completely new possibilities, but also new challenges. With the Argon FAT we have created a fat bike that is always ready for anything. You can ride through the snowy landscape in winter, enjoy sandy trails, dunes and beaches in summer or shred over the trails with extraordinary flow for a hardtail.
The Argon FAT uses its own adjustable dropouts – of course, also being Singlespeed-compatible, Gates-ready and with the appropriate adapters also suitable for the direct mounting of a gear hub. As befits a real trail bike, the Argon FAT comes standard with an ISCG05 mount and a proven BSA bottom bracket.
Fatbike or Trailbike? With the Argon FAT you have both in one.
If after a few years of hard work a bearing on a Nicolai frame needs to be replaced, a RADO needs to be replaced due to a fall or a frame needs a new coating, the NICOLAI service staff is the right contact. Since we at NICOLAI manufacture all small parts on our machines, we can also produce spare parts for older models if required. We therefore guarantee spare parts availability of at least 10 years for all Nicolai products.
