I have just seen this video on the Xterrain500 and I think immense tire size is meant to give a lot of surface area and therefore a load of float to the bike.

I know fatbikes are capable of going in all sorts of terrains like sand and deep snow, but the Xterrain 500 is the first one to offer such a large front wheel. What do you think?

That it would take a lot of power to push that big heavy rim, tire and fork assembly.
Looks goofy too. ;) (not that there's anything wrong with that.....)
