Pivot LES Fat, Bicycling – Is it the best fat bike?

02.24.2017 | News


Bicycling Magazine tells you “6 Reasons We Can’t Get Enough of Fat Biking“, including why the Pivot LES Fat bike may be the best fat bike, and is the perfect choice for riders who want a 4-season machine that won’t hurt their knees or hips:






“To develop the LES Fat, which has one of the lowest Q factors available, Cocalis and team created a computer model to take into account heel rotation of a size 14 foot in a snow boot, and developed a “No Fly Zone” where the chainstay could not cross. In order to slim the Q factor and maintain a proper chainline, Pivot slimmed the crank spider and utilized a crank that moves the chainrings outboard. Boost spacing moves the chainring outboard 3mm; the LES Fat moves it 7.5mm. ”

The LES Fat has the honor of winning National and World Championship gold – in addition to being the best choice for all seasons shredding.
