Fat bikes eat up 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 Deore 2x10 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.

Reid Cycles ships bikes, parts and accessories anywhere in Australia!
Free shipping of bikes is available to most metropolitan and some regional areas. We also combined shipping wherever possible to keep the price down. Once you have one or more items in your cart, view your cart, pop your postcode in and we'll give you the combined shipping price. We are currently unable to ship to overseas addresses, please contact our customer services team to enquire about distributors in your area.
We aim to keep the price as low as possible by shipping smaller items for free if they can be shipped with larger items. Helmets, shoes and parts most often ship for free with your new bike!
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 other suitably qualified person. Damage caused by incorrect assembly (such as installing the pedals the wrong way around) is not covered by your warranty.
Orders for items that are currently in stock are usually despatched within 1 to 2 working days. You'll receive an email with tracking information once the order has been despatched. Certain periods of the year are seasonably busy, with much higher volumes than normal. At these times, we still aim to despatch within 1 to 2 days, but deliveries may take a little longer due to our couriers' workload.
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, which is an instruction to say that there is a safe place leave to delivery, even if there is no one there to take delivery. 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 redelivery.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
In Store Collection in one of our stores is always free! Your bike comes fully assembly, adjusted and ready to go. You can order online for pickup in store. The store will receive your order, assemble your bike and give you a call when it’s ready to collect! Whenever possible, we recommend collection in store. The bike will be fully assembled by an experienced Reid Cycles mechanic. Our staff will also be happy to help you make final adjustments, set saddle height and answer any other questions you might have!
