Ares 26"

Fat bikes eat up the terrain you wouldn’t even dream of attempting on another rig. The Ares lets you experience what all the Fat Bike buzz is about – built for riders looking to conquer deep snow, blistering sand, viscous mud or the sketchiest of rock gardens.

  • Colossal 26” x 4” Kenda Juggernaut tyres to dominate previously unrideable terrain
  • Performance 6061 hydro-formed alloy frame will carry any adventurer into the wild and back again
  • Tektro HDC Hydraulic Disc brakes (180mm front, 160mm rear) and Shimano 1 x 10spd, 30T shifting for stability and control in all conditions
  • Available in four sizes so everyone can experience the thrill of all-terrain adventure

Conventional mountain bikes are designed to be ridden with tyres filled to 25-65 psi. The Ares can run 10 psi or lower. This allows more of the tyre to grip and traverse otherwise unrideable ground. If you want to experience new trails, rugged terrain and a riding experience like no other - the Ares Fat Bike will take you there.

 

For online home delivery orders, bikes are shipped in a box 85% assembled and require some final assembly. For more information please see our shipping and returns page. Bikes purchased in-store are fully assembled and ready to ride.

SHIPPING

Flat rate of $9.99 shipping is currently available to most of the Australian mainland (includes Tasmania). For postcodes ineligible for the $9.99 flat rate, Reid Cycles subsidizes shipping costs to help make shipping more affordable in remote and harder to access areas.

  • Pick up In store options are always free for all products

Areas with a shipping surcharge:

Shipping of bikes is currently a flat rate of $9.99 to most of the Australian mainland and Tasmania. Due to the high costs of postage and on-forwarding for large items to remote island locations, these areas will incur a surcharge (Reid subsidise all shipping but cannot cover it all in all cases). The surcharge will be applied to your cart during the checkout process.

For more information, please call our customer service team on (03) 9314 9199

We do not ship outside of Australia. If you live overseas and would like to buy a Reid bike please visit our international website to view a list of retailers.

Estimated dispatch & shipping times:

Orders for items that are currently in stock are usually dispatched within 1 to 2 working days (business days only). You'll receive an email with tracking information once the order has been dispatched. Delivery times can vary depending on the size of the items ordered, with bulky goods taking longer than smaller items. Please note, some orders may be subject to a security check prior to being dispatched which may cause a delay. The below delivery estimates are calculated from the time of purchase:

  • VIC: 3-6 business days
  • NSW: 4-7 business days
  • SA: 4-7 business days
  • QLD: 4-7 business days
  • NT, Nth QLD: 6-9 business days
  • WA, TAS: 7-10 business days

Pick Up In-store:

Collection from one of our stores is always free! When collected in-store, your bike comes fully assembled by an experienced Reid Cycles mechanic, adjusted and ready to go.

The store will receive your order, assemble your bike and give you a call within 2-5 days advising when your bike can be picked up. Whenever possible, we recommend collection in store.

Assembly:

Remember that bikes are shipped boxed, and 85% assembled. The final assembly required includes the installation of the handlebars, front wheel, pedals and saddle, adjusting the brakes and tuning the gears. We recommend that the assembly is done by a qualified bike mechanic or another suitably qualified person. Damage caused by an incorrect assembly (such as installing the pedals the wrong way around) is not covered by your warranty.

Please see our 'How to guides' for assembly instructions if you do choose to assemble a bike yourself.

Delivery method:

It's always best to send to an address that always has someone in attendance, such as a business address. You may also want to give our courier an 'authority to leave' instruction. Only give us an 'authority to leave' if you're confident that the delivery will be safe. Otherwise, the courier can leave a 'sorry we missed you' card, allowing you to arrange re-delivery.

Warranty:

  • A lifetime Warranty on every Reid bike frame we sell.
  • A lifetime Warranty on all rigid forks, including our carbon fibre range.
  • A 2-year Warranty on all suspension forks, Shimano components and Mavic wheelsets.
  • A 2-year Warranty on all other non-consumable components.
