Fruita Fat Tire Festival
This weekend in Fruita, CO is the 19th Annual Fruita Fat Tire Festival! This weekend Osprey will be joining the celebration as the Fruita Fat Tire Festival has made a tradition of riding miles of pristine mountain bike trails, meeting with MTB friends from around the world and support those who support the passion, the lifestyle and the sport we all enjoy.
With agreeable weather and some incredible events happening April 24th through Sunday the 27th, this event is a must-attend for lovers of trail, singletrack and good times! We’re excited to see friends new and old, including friends/festival sponosor (and brewers of some of our favorite flavors), New Belgium Brewing!
From the VIP party Thursday night, to the live bands Friday and Saturday evenings under the summer stars in downtown Fruita, to one of the top cycling expos in the state: there’s plenty of fun to be had! Join the party and celebrate hundreds of miles of World Class MTB Trails!
In addition to high-fives for all, here’s what we’ll have going on at the Osprey Booth: (more…)

Osprey Packs flew the flag over the weekend at the Fruita Fat Tire Festival in Fruita, Colorado. After a difficult start on Thursday evening when a brief storm blew through with winds approaching 80 mph, the remainder of the weekend brought perfect mountain biking weather and a fantastic festival. Thanks to all who participated in the Osprey festivities which included, Rippin Chix MTB skills clinics, Osprey hydration pack demos, a heated Fix-A-Flat competition, plentiful schwag giveaways and special deals through local Osprey retailers.
Fruita pulled out all of the stops with live music in the park, a New Belgium beer tent, a great selection of bicycles to test out, pancake breakfast and other exciting activities. Between Fruita and Grand Junction there are so many amazing single track trails that a weekend was not near enough time to explore all the opportunities. We look forward to coming back next year.
Fruita, Colorado provided a venue for the second stop on the 2011 Osprey Bike Pack Demo Tour. In its 16th year of existence, the Fruita Fat Tire Festival has proven to have a successful formula of business mixed with fun, with a much higher emphasis on the FUN!
Osprey Packs partook in the buzz by having our fabulous new line of hydration packs available for riders to demo and put to their own test on the world famous single track trails of Fruita. “Try It Before You Buy It” gets us instant feedback that keeps us constantly in touch with what users like and don’t like.
5 Point Film Festival kicked off last night here in Carbondale and it’s hard not to feel the buzz of inspiration, adventure and pure life. Maybe it’s because our own Timmy O’Neill led us in a chant of healing for our friend Bean Bowers who is battling cancer right now, a yell of love for a recovering Renan Ozturk or maybe it was the moment of joyous shouting to celebrate those we have lost and we, who are LIVING, but we’re more excited and honored than ever to be in such a powerful and inspiring community.
It sure is bike season. Just a couple of weeks after Sea Otter and we’re off to another two-wheeled extravaganza.
We will be strutting our stuff this weekend at the Fruita Fat Tire Festival. What’s in store? Plenty of good stuff:
- Viper, Verve and Raptor demo packs available for testing on Fruita’s famous singletrack trails
- Event special pricing offering 15% off all in stock Osprey Hydraulics packs at The Bike Shop in Grand Junction – if you don’t already have one, it’s time to get one!
- Daily raffles for schwag and Osprey packs (have to be present to win)
- Full display of Osprey Hydraulics and Commuter packs
- Tons of giveaway stuff at the Osprey booth — which means you have to stop by!
We’re also pretty excited about the Rippin Chix MTB skills camp with Osprey athlete Alison Gannett on Saturday April 30th.
We look forward to seeing you at the booth and on the trails!
