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.


Awesome bikes, value and service is just the beginning. There are loads more reasons to choose Reid Cycles, find out here.
