Firefly Goes Fat for Vittoria’s Bomboloni Tires Apr 8, 2015





Apologies for double dipping Firefly this week, but their latest bike is too good to not share. Immediately.

Firefly has appeared to have hooked up with Vittoria to make a custom titanium fatbike, modeled after their new 26″ fat tires, the Bomboloni (named after an Italian donut). All this is merely speculation, but I’m guessing the frosty branding and “bomboloni” on the top tube is enough evidence to deduce that.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a slicker, meaner bike from Firefly. Check out the segmented stays, slightly bent top tube, gussets and thru-axles! Nice work fellas. See the rest at the Firefly Flickr.

  • The paint job on top of the anodizing is insane. I really love what they’ve done here.

    • professorvelo

      yeah, the snow is a seriously nice touch

    • Hubert d’Autremont

      Josie Moreway for the win!

  • Tony Clifton

    Mmmmm, donuts…. [And that’s the nicest looking fatbike I’ve seen yet]

  • Kyle Kelley

    I’ve been riding the 29+ version and love it! But now that I know what Bomboloni means, I really love them!

  • The details and finish are up to Firefly’s usual standard of ‘insane perfectionism’, but I really can’t get with those top-tube and down-tube profiles.
    Reminds me of the time I accidentally rode my first MTB into a parked car, aged 11.
