Look what the Sarma winds blew in…one of the lightest, best looking fat bike framesets in the world. Together with our full carbon NARAN rims and top components from SRAM, the Shaman has the fun factor, versatility and hook up of a fat bike it is but with the weight of a high end mountain bike. We had a great winter here in the Midwest for fatbiking, in fact it felt like Siberia. But we are glad to see the snow gone and looking forward to riding our Shaman year round. The Sarma team’s goal with the 170mm rear axle and a shorter chainstay was to have the Shaman’s acceleration, lightness and ride feel like a 29er so that no one would want to put the bike away for the summer. Inspired by harsh winters and ready for them, the Shaman was made to go fast, all four season.
