The Echo

Named after Echo Canyon in Dinosaur National Monument up in the northwestern boonies of Colorado, the echo is the first performance-oriented, full carbon frame designed around the brand new RockShox BLUTO fat bike suspension fork. The extreme lateral stiffness combined with geometry optimized for the BLUTO's 100mm of travel truly revolutionized fat biking. We also spec 35mm clamp stems and handlebars on our top two build kit models; this new oversized standard is a perfect match for the extra-wide tires of fat bikes. Internal dropper seatpost routing is the cherry on top of the echo's design features that make it stand out as a do anything, ride anywhere, year round adventure shredding machine. See the full specs for each build kit below.

You’ll have to go ride one for yourself to find out just how much fun you’ll have. Check out our dealers page to find out where you can demo an echo.

Different Configurations

GX

Carbon fiber performance at an excellent price – that’s the soul of the Echo GX. As always, this Echo is built around the Bluto fork, the world’s first fatbike-specific fork – and the rest of the spec, like SRAM drivetrain and brakes, assure consistent performance in any weather, in any terrain.

      

X01

Our X01 kit is packed full of value: World-class 1x11 shifting, SRAM Guide RS hydraulic brakes, and RaceFace Turbine 35mm clamp bar and stem will have this bike shifting, stopping, and turning on a dime. The addition of your choice of 120tpi tires set up on Turnagain FR80 rims (in all sorts of snazzy color options) will have this bike cornering and rolling over trail obstacles in style.

      

XX1

The XX1 kit spares nothing -- we’ve combined the lightest and most-elite mountain bike components from all disciplines of the sport into the optimal component package for any fat bike. A full, World Cup-proven XX1 drivetrain, wide carbon RaceFace Next SL handlebars with a short 35mm clamp stem and 120tpi tires will allow you to put your riding buddies to shame on the single track. The RaceFace Next SL crank is the lightest weight fat bike crank available and will make you think you’re riding a “skinny tire” XC race bike.
