The new Tundra is “an all-rounder built for anything you can throw at it, according to 9:zero:7. Based off of the original Whiteout AL, advancements for this new aluminum fat bike model include shorter chainstays (450mm vs 467mm) and dropping 300g off the weight.
The stock build features 26×4.0” tires, SRAM GX1 drivetrain, a carbon fork, retails for $2,399, and weighs in at 27.5lbs.
The Squall is a kids-specific fat bike designed around a 24×4.0″ fat bike tire, and according to 9:zero:7, it should fit kids four to five feet tall.
Stock builds feature a SRAM NX1 component spec and start at $1,999. 9:zero:7 felt that they had to justify the cost of this kids fat bike, so they offered some comparisons in their press release:
“At first thought, this might seem like a lot for a kids bike, but compared to a season of hockey or alpine skiing, it’s pretty reasonable. Especially considering it should last well beyond the first kid to make for a great hand me down. And this isn’t just another kids bike that’s going to weigh twice as much as the kid, this is a high performance youth bike with quality parts built to last and hold up to kids abuse.”
I’ve never spent two grand for a season of downhill skiing in the 20 years I’ve been shredding, but whatever.
For summer use, the Squall can accommodate anywhere from a 26×3″ tire all the way up to a 27.5×3″.
