It is a will of the brand since its acquisition by the new shareholder (the Norwegian fund Altor is in majority for 4 years), Rossignol must diversify. It's done, after the purchase of 2 iconic bike brands, Time at first, and Felt since February of this year (but also the trail Raidlight specialist). While continuing to develop the brands, Rossignol has also integrated the know-how to develop bicycles under a third name, Rossignol Cycles.
There are 18 bikes in the first range, including this E-Track Fat, which replaces the 7G released last year in year 0. It is accompanied in its range by the E Track Trail, 27.5+, 700 (urban), and 24 (junior) while another range, the "All Track", is dedicated to mountain bikes without electric assistance.
Equipped with 4 inch tires (oversize) with XXL frame and fork, and a central Brose engine, the E-Track FAT (23,6kg, 4000€) is a real gliding machine, normal that Rossignol puts it forward. With a very good grip and surprising sensations on soft and slippery surfaces like snow, mud or sand, this is a new way to see the mountain.
