We didn’t invent the fat bike…we reinvented it.
In earlier designs, the rear triangle of the frame had to be bent outward to the right side, along with using an extra wide spindle on the cranks to move the chain rings outward and provide more chain clearance for wider tires. This moved the rear wheel off center, necessitating the need for offset drilled rims, where all the spokes were on one side to re-center the wheel. Many riders said they could feel this offset when riding.
In 2007, Greg set out to produce the most advanced fatbike ever made. The wide, symmetrical hub design solved all of these problems associated with offset designs, and was soon adopted by all frame manufacturers, and would remain the standard until 2012, when we developed an even wider symmetrical hub to allow use of 5” wide tires. The mighty Fatback 197mm hub has remained the standard ever since.
In virtually all hubs, spoke lengths and tension are not equal. Symmetrically designed hub flanges keep all spoke lengths and tension equal, building the ultimate wheel.

Corvus Rhino FLT
The all new Rhino FLT won Corvus another award being chosen best fatbike of 2020 by Outside Magazine. Our progressive geometry combines attributes from our award winning Corvus carbon frame as well as our Skookum, which is the rowdiest fat bike available
We took the best handling bike in the business and squeezed out even more performance and fun, without sacrificing rack or bottle mounts, even on the fork. The all-new Akio embodies everything you could want in the backcountry or on your local trails.
We would love to say we designed the Skookum AF to be a quiver killer, but why limit how many bikes we own? Of course, if you only have one bike, this is the one. As amazing on summer trails as it is on winter singletrack, a true year-round riding buddy.
