THE TUSKER / TOUR
MTB / THE TUSKER
African bull elephants are also called tuskers. They are true masters: fearless, majestic and strong. All these attributes can also be used to describe our fat bike THE TUSKER. It impressively moves on fat, 4-inch wide tyres that beefily and robustly slash their way forward. They offer a unique grip. The term bank must be redefined, slipping is almost impossible. Even steep climbs have to be re-evaluated: The outstanding traction almost automatically pulls you up any mountain. There are totally new challenges waiting for you! Even though the bike is quite massive, it is nimble, agile and not heavy at all. This is how it shows its potential as a genuine mountain bike, as a specialist for snow, sand, coarse gravel or mud – or simply as an eye-catching bike. One thing is clear: With THE TUSKER, you cannot swim with the tide!
THE TUSKER – a specialist that can do it all!
Fatbikes are no show bikes, but true mountain bikes. Thanks to their fat tyres, these bikes offer outstanding comfort and grip even though they come without suspension. The parts of extremely high quality used for the THE TUSKER 1 are the basis for endless riding pleasure. At first, they were smiled at as being special bikes, now even established manufacturers like Schwalbe put a lot of work into the development of new products in order to serve a whole new market. The Schwalbe Jumbo Jim Evo Snakeskin 26 x 4,0 tyres were especially developed for this kind of bike. They belong to the Evolution Line, are equipped with SnakeSkin casing to protect from sharp-edged stones and are made from Pace Star rubber compound, weighing less than 1000 grams – an impressive value taking into consideration the bike's dimensions! The bike comes with a modern shifting system, SRAM's high-quality GX drivetrain offers 1 x 11 gears – all this at an affordable price! There is nothing you will miss: X-Snyc chainrings are part of the bike, just as the proven X-Horizon rear derailleur.
African bull elephants are also called tuskers – and that’s exactly what our THE TUSKER 2 looks like with its high-quality AL-7005 aluminium frame. Not a bike only for specialists, but a full-fledged and versatile mountain bike! Especially for this extraordinary mountain bike, ROSE has developed the “THE TUSKER” carbon fork, mega fat and mega stiff. 4-inch wide tyres of the Schwalbe company turn through it, the Jumbo Jim Evo Snakeskin 26 x 4,0 is a tyre specially designed for fatbikes, offering massive grip and great comfort. It belongs to the Evolution Line, is equipped with SnakeSkin casing to protect from sharp-edged stones and made from fast Pace-Star compound. The folding tyre not even weighs 1000 grams!
