Introduced as an alloy fatbike way back in 2015, the Rocky Mountain Blizzard has been the company’s flagship “alt” bike for a while now. It’s received a few updates here and there, such as the 2017 remodel that we reviewed in 2017. For 2022, Rocky Mountain released a significant update in the form of a lightweight, carbon version. Read on for details on the 2022 Rocky Mountain Blizzard Carbon…

The funky red and green 2022 Rocky Mountain Blizzard Carbon features a “Smoothwall Carbon” frame with a 100mm BSA bottom bracket, zero stack tapered headtube, fully guided internal cable routing, dropper post routing for a 30.9mm post, 197mm rear dropouts, and a Rocky Mountain Carbon Fat fork. It also has plenty of mounts, with two three-pack cage mounts on the fork and two within the main triangle, plus a three pack under the top tube for a bolt-on bag or accessory. It also comes equipped with rear rack mounts for winter bikepacking pursuits.
