Look what the Sarma winds blew in...one of the lightest, best looking fat bike framesets in the world. 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.
"The Shaman lived up to its name, with magical handling and rock solid feel all wrapped in that featherweight carbon package" - Fat-Bike.com
Highlights & Features:
Greater standover clearance
More clearance of the lower top tube makes riding in deep snow or sand feel a lot more comfortable on starts and dabs...if you know what we mean.
Universal solution works with tapered or straight steerer forks.
Rear and front thru axles (170mm/150mm) securely connect the bike as a single unit making the bike stiffer so that you can hold a line much better from deflections off rocks, ruts or roots.
27.2 mm Seatpost
Offers a higher damping performance (flexes a bit more) for a more comfortable ride.
Internal cable routing
