ICE Fat Tire 01The ICE Full Fat FS evolved from an ICE custom-made trike, which was ridden across Antarctica to the South Pole in December 2013. Elements of the original, like the heat-treated 4130 chromoly frame and oversized rims and tyres have been combined with components suited to tackle a range of off-road conditions. On this version they include a Rohloff XL 14-speed gear hub, Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, and suspension front and rear. The C.F.T. hinge allows the trike to be folded for easier transportation to the trail.
