The Blizzard is a true “mountain-bike-feeling” fat bike. With suspension-optimized design, agile trail bike geometry, and truly capable parts specs, the Blizzard has Rocky Mountain ride quality on snow, sand, and anything else you get yourself into.
We’ve eked out even more clearance in the rear triangle and removed the front derailleur mount for a cleaner look and lighter weight. The Blizzard -50° now comes stock with a 120mm fork.
The first bike ever sold in Sports Garage was a Rocky Mountain. Their values as a mountain bike builder are impeccable, a fact that is evident in the Blizzard. Though the name implies snow, snow, and more snow, we carry the Blizzard because it is truly a fat bike for every season. With lots of fat bikes on the market, we recommend establishing your own expectations of the bike and the experience you are looking for. Some fat bikes are more expedition oriented, while some are more trail oriented. The Blizzard’s mountain bike geometry and 1x drivetrain takes full advantage of the RockShox Bluto fork, and the bike is surprisingly agile – go check out Rocky Mountain’s FATFREE video and you’ll see just how agile. We carry this bike because it is built (and priced) for maximum fun.
