The bike is outfitted with a pair of 26″ fat tires to help conquer everything from soft sand and snow to hard packed trails and rocks. In this video, they show it going up some significant inclines.

It also includes a 10- speed drive train. This should allow you to gear up just about any climb you’re ready to try and conquer.
