Spring might be around the corner but the wet and wintry weather is still lingering on. So with sloppy trails and no end in sight, why not embrace the mud (and maybe even snow) and treat yourself to a fat bike?
Two Wheels Better took a first look at our Dune and a range of customer reviews from the Go Outdoors website to get an idea of whether the Dune is a budget blaster to be reckoned with.
Their verdict? We’re thrilled to see the team at Two Wheels Better were impressed with the look and that it “didn’t feel like a cheap bike” following a quick spin at Mountain Mayhem.

Mountain Biking UK magazine awarded the Calibre Bossnut five stars in a recent review of the Go Outdoors full-suspension trail bike, labelling it an “impressively efficient, controlled and flat out fun all-rounder.”
The spec and performance of the Bossnut impressed the team, and for less than £1,000 Calibre’s full-sus ride can be enjoyed by the masses.
