IB13: 9:ZERO:7 Goes Carbon Black with New Whiteout Carbon Fatbike
Might as well get this one up while we’re at it. Teased back in July, 9:zero:7 had their new Whiteout carbon fatbike on hand to join in with the carbon craze. With availability about a month away, it looks like the Whiteout may be the first dual thru axle fatbike with a 197mm rear dropout on the market.
Check out the details plus actual weight after the break!
Equipped with a tapered head tube and a carbon fork with a 135x15mm thru axle the Whiteout has plenty of room for big tires on big rims.
A 6 inch post mount brake standard is used which is situated just behind the 9:zero:7 branded thru axle.
Like most fatbikes a 100mm threaded bottom bracket is used and a band clamp front derailleur is needed if you’re not running a 1x.
6 inch post mount brakes are found at the back too, and the 197x12mm thru axle allows for 4.8″ tires on 100mm rims. Unlike the other two carbon fatbikes we’ve seen lately, the Whiteout does not have rack mounts.
With a similar build to the Borealis Yampa SL minus the carbon wheels, the Whiteout weighs a still impressive 23.15lbs. While the Yampa is almost two pounds lighter, the Whiteout does have a thru axle rear where the Yampa is QR. Regardless, both of these bikes’ weights were previously unthinkably light.
Whiteouts should be available in a month and will be sold in S, M, and L, orange and green frames with frame sets going for $2299.
