Tomahawk, Tomahawk XT and Tomahawk XC – these bikes are one of a kind as all our bike designs are. We have the only real fat tire 29er bikes in the world. Our bikes have now 100mm alloy or 90mm carbon rims. These use our patented rim design and low wall pending tire design for ultra light rotational weight (coming Summer 2015). Our carbon fiber rims only weigh approximately 560 gms compared to others at 960+ gms. Our tires weight is only 920 gms compared to others at 1,250 gms and our rims are tubeless compatible, which would allow no tube and a reduce the weight about 350 gms more per wheel, this is lighter than any other wheel system currently available, all together about 2+ pounds lighter than the competition. Our bikes will come in between 22lbs. to 26lbs with alloy frame, which the lightest Fat Tire competitors bikes which are currently available comes in at a price of about $8,500 (our bikes are very reasonably priced at, all alloy-approximately $1,395, alloy with carbon rims only approximately $2,595 and decked out with carbon rims, seat post, cranks, front fork and handle bars and priced at approximately $3,395. These $8,500 bikes are all carbon but our wheel sets and rotational weight is still much lighter than the competitors. The frame weight only becomes an issue if you are climbing where these are for soft terrain and not climbing but your rotational weight becomes an issue all the time. We have the 29er style, which no one else has with the lightest rotational weight. We believe that we are on the cutting edge with the only real 29er Fat Tire bike made adding in our future (sometime in 2015) low wall tire with its 4.5” tread. We think this will be the next step in the bicycle industry and with its great rotational weight our wheel systems alone we feel, will dominate the fat bike racing events.
Adding the fact this is the greatest cross training bike made, with our current design we are more a hybrid between mountain bicycles and fat bikes with all the great features of both.
• Best cross training bike in the world. Ride this bike on road, sand, snow off season, off road. Just jump on your road bike and see how much stronger you’ve gotten; ride once or twice per week will make you better at any other biking.
• Bike gives riders a new venue, with beach and sand, soft terrain riding and this bike takes that to a new level faster, more maneuverable and quicker acceleration with its lighter rotational weight and 29er technology than any fat tire bike.
This has been proven with two world records, which our bike now holds ridden by Mike Unklesbay and because of our bike we hold 2 of only 3 endurance world mountain bike records, and with our new carbon components next year, we will hold all 3 (see attached world record certificates).
If you do the math the 26" Fat Tires have a diameter of about 29", where the 29er like I propose and your current have about ( now only 30 1/2" diameter =/- and future about 30 3/4" diameter. This means with the lighter weight and less rotational weight and resistance you use less effort to rotate this bikes wheel system . And if you use math the circumference is 1 3/4" times Pi ( 3.14) or 5.5" more travel per rotation). Taking more math and using the fact that most riders do about 100 RPMs, putting bike in the 38 front and say a 14 rear you get about 2.7 wheel or tire rotations per riders rotation. 2.7 times 5.5" times 100 RPM you get about 1485 more inches per min or 124 feet. this times 60 mins in one hour you get 7440 feet per hour or 1.4 miles , This means that our tire and wheel system will do about 1.4 more MPH then any Fat Tire 26" wheel will do with less effort . If this is explained and then proven , which by the way most Mountain Bikes will already understand that is why they all ride 29ers now, to the riders no one will want 26" wheel systems any more in the very near future
