From top to chonky bottom, the Bigfoot VLT 1 is engineered with all the unique performance and features that serious Fat Bikers demand.

Shimano's EP8 drive system combines high torque electric assist with your choice of 540Wh, 720Wh or 900Wh in-tube batteries. (sold separately)

Charge Forward
The Bigfoot VLT's rider cockpit is optimized for quick, efficient climbing and its progressive geometry makes for confident, stable descents.

Extra Fat
Massive standover clearance and thru axles set the Bigfoot VLT's aluminum frame apart and internally routed cables provide a clean look and keep critical systems working great.

Year-Round Performance
Cold-weather optimized hydraulic components including suspension, dropper post and disc brakes are ultra-reliable when temps plummet and deliver all year long.

Choose your Juice
Custom select your battery capacity from 540Wh, 720Wh or massive, industry-leading 900Wh depending on how you ride. Lighter weight for speedy laps, mammoth range for epic adventures, or somewhere in between.

VLT batteries are sold separately.
When purchasing this bike, make sure you have added the bike and your choice of battery to your shopping cart before you check out.
Bike orders cannot be fulfilled without a battery.

Shimano STEPS
Shimano STEPS EP8 drive units give you extra everything and provide the push you need to get through the tough stuff.

Removable Battery
All batteries can be installed in minutes with one tool. Batteries are encased within the downtube for protection and can be easily removed for charging on and off the bike or for easy swaps.

High-Flotation Wheels & Tires
80mm rims and studdable 27.5 x 4.5" tires put more rubber on the ground. The massive footprints float over snow and sand and soften the blow from gnarly trail features with immense amounts of traction. Ample clearance for 4.6" rubber.
