Up Close: Borealis Echo XX1

If you’ve got £5000 spare (how much? etc, etc) and want a bike that’ll tackle anything/everything here’s the Borealis Echo XX1 that Sideways Tim has just popped round to show us.

Weighing in at “sub 30 pounds”, the carbon framed fat bike has fully guided internal routing for cables and stealth dropper, 100mm BB shell, 197x12mm rear end and space for a 4.8″ tyre on a 100mm rim.

Obviously the Echo XX1 comes with SRAM’s top of the range 1×11 gearing, XX brakes and a Rockshox Bluto 100mm fork. Race Face Next SL cranks, Next seatpost and Next bars complete the build. A Stealth Reverb upgrade option is available.
