Felt DD Fat Bike – 2018 – Legacy

Try something different this winter and get out on the Felt DD fat bike! Just because there’s snow on the ground doesn’t mean you have to stop pedaling. Whether you’re looking for alternative winter fun or you want to stay fit in the off-season, fat bikes are a great way to get out and play in the snow. The Felt “Double Double” DD has super-wide, low-pressure tires that conform and grip snow, ice and slush so you can get your spin on all winter long. Take the Felt DD out for a mellow cruise on Park City’s historic rail trail; or for the more adventurous, Park City has a wide variety of groomed and non-groomed fat bike trail options.

Felt DD Fat Bike Aluminum Frame & Componenets

The Felt DD comes in three spec levels, the top-of-the-line DD 10, which comes with a RockShox Bluto suspension fork, the mid-spec DD 30 and the entry-level DD 70, both of which have a rigid aluminum fork. We carry the Felt DD 70 fat bike in our demo fleet, although we’re happy to order whatever model you’d like if you’re ready to buy.

For demo purposes, the Felt DD 70 fat bike is perfect. It’s simple, affordable and built to last. That also makes it a great second bike for winter riders. All three Felt DD models, including the DD 70, are built around the same light, reliable hydroformed 6061 aluminum frame. The DD 70 has a SRAM NX 1x11 drivetrain, a hydroformed aluminum fork with rack mounts, Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, double-walled aluminum wheels and 4-inch Schwalbe Jumbo Jim EVO tires. It’s everything you need to have a good time on the snow without emptying your wallet.

Felt DD Fat Bike – The Bottom Line

If you’re the kind of cyclist that doesn’t want to put the bike away in the winter, or ski conditions are sub-par, then the Felt DD fat bike is your answer. Fat biking is a great, affordable way to stay fit, active and outdoors in the winter; and the Felt DD is simple, reliable and won’t put a huge dent in your bank account.

Felt DD 70 Fat Bike – Where it Fits

Compared to the other bikes we carry, the Felt DD 70 is in a class of its own. The closest competition is the Felt Surplus, a 27.5+ hardtail with 3-inch tires. But for serious winter riding, the Felt DD 70’s 4-inch tires make it a much better choice than a Plus bike.
