This was the best experience I could have hoped for. Crestone with the XO1 pkg, Lauf fork and Hed Carbon wheels. Saved a pile of $$ and got what I wanted from the start.
Great customer service.
Will buy from them again.

If you’re the market for a fat bike give Borealis serious consideration. Fit and finish of Borealis frame and fork are exceptional. When I had questions regarding size and options, the CEO spent close to an hour with me over the phone. Once purchased, bike arrived on time, and impeccably packaged. Bottom line. An exceptional product backed by great customer service!

Great customer service! I enjoy riding my Echo so much I began using it year round and then changed the fat tires and wheels for 27.5 wheels and 3 inch tires for the summer and sold my full suspension 29er. Now I own a Crestone as well and use the Echo until the snow falls.

Extraordinary is the only way to describe.... I bought two.... One XL which has kept my 6'5, 270 lb body rolling across the dunes or deep snow with ease. The other small for a woman who had never ridden a bike before.... At all. She's gliding over the same terrain. They are admired by fat bikers, cross country skiers we pass, and families trudging through the dunes.... I'll be buying more for the rest of the family!!!!!

Excellent products, but more importantly, expert customer service. The people at Borealis really go the extra mile.
I have ordered a frameset, extra hubs, and warranty replacement of a fork on separate occasions. The warranty replacement happened while living abroad. In each instance the people I spoke to were fantastic at identifying the right products and ensuring I received what I needed efficiently.
The Borealis bike I am currently riding is a 1st generation Yampa, and has been one of my most favorite bikes that I’ve owned (and I have quite a collection).
Borealis has the trifecta - great quality, high performance, and trusted support.

I have found my Borealis Crestone to be an amazingly built bicycle. The geometry is amazing and wonderful old-school technology that feels great on the trail. The first time I rode my Borealis that I build from the frame up could not tell what type of bike I was riding because it felt so good… I was one with the bike and I would truly recommend it to anyone. I have since bought my partner a
Flume, and she loves it!

Steve at Borealis was great to work with, responded quickly to questions, built a beautiful bike. I rode my Borealis fat bike all winter. It renewed my enthusiasm for snow and getting out there to play in it.

My Echo has been flawless, only issue has been the Sram brakes, but I've never had any Sram brake work very well.

I found the exact right bike for me, and it was a lightly used demo so I could afford it. I love everything about it! It’s so light, I can lift it over my head. It’s fun to ride and the palm rests are something I never want to live without again. The carbon wheels feel like air rolling under my feet. The customer service was bar none. Adam helped me decide the smartest way to adjust the gearing to suit my lackluster engine. Everything was tuned up and they even added the dropper post for way less than I could have done on my own. Since it was lightly used I don’t have to deal with a break in period or panic over the first scratch! All I had to do was have my mechanic order the part. We shipped straight to my mechanic who gave me my new chain ring during assembly and off I went. Glad I had insomnia that night!

Great customer service. Helped me get wheels, fork, and tires I needed in time for the Birkie. Just wished they manufactured/maintained parts for old forks/bikes would have made thing a lot easier.

Easy to work with. Best pricing available. Easy shipping to home. Overall a great experience. Bought the Borealis Crestone. Great bike. Nimble for a fat bike. Light weight. Easily converted to 27.5+ for summer.

I have bought two fat bikes and love them both. Custom ordering was a great experience. My first Borealis has been such a pleasure to ride. Peace on Wheels. I was traveling a lot and decided to treat myself to a second destination Borealis. Again, pleasure to custom order. Shipping was fast and assembly was pretty easy. I had some questions while putting it together. The assembly video was thorough but being a rookie builder I had additional questions. The staff was super responsive and I got it together. A pleasure to ride that one as well.
I’m honestly looking for an excuse to buy another for a new destination bike.
The carbon frames make the bikes very responsive and light I’m 61 years old and ride a standard fork and a Lauf shock fork. Not a crazy rider anymore so didn’t feel the need for big shocks. The tires provide a good anoint of shock absorption so unless you are doing radical downhill or monster trails, save the money, weight, maintenance and go with the fixed standard fork. If you are young or crazy, go for big RockShock.
I also got a set of 29” wheels with thinner tires. Faster and less resistance, but I prefer the ride of the 4-4.4 fat guys. It’s nice having an extra set of wheels but there’s a cost to the 29s. Might consider another set of 26’s with Bud and Lou snow tires that you could throw on when your regulars are flat! I ride one bike tubeless. The rims and tires hold seal as well or better than my skinny 29ers on my other bikes.
My second bike I run with tubes. Makes it heavier but barely notice the difference.
Best bikes ever
