It's right for you if...
You don't just want to ride through the winter – you want to ride fast. You love every aspect of fat biking, and are looking for a faster ride with better performance to take on bigger adventures, epic races and more fun.
The tech you get
A lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with horizontal sliding dropouts, a Bontrager Haru rigid carbon fork, a wide-range SRAM GX Eagle drive train with an extra low climbing gear, a dropper post for getting down, and SUNringlé Mulefüt wheels paired with a 108T Rapid Drive hub for instant engagement, and wide, ultra-grippy Bontrager Barbegazi TLR tyres.
The final word
Speed in every season. Farley 9.6 is light, fast and built to rip. It's the ideal winter shred sled for fat bike adventurers, racers looking to train outside year-round and anyone who values the performance advantage of carbon.
favorite_borderWhy you'll love it
- A lightweight carbon frame and fork mean this bike won't be bogged down by foul weather, deep snow or gnarly terrain
- The stability and traction of super wide tyres make you a more confident rider on any trail
- Horizontal sliding dropouts lets you fine-tune your geometry – run it long for stability or shorter for nimbler handling
- The dropper post lets you lower your saddle on the fly so it's out of the way on descents
- It's a four-season freedom machine that lets you ride outside all-year long
Rapid Drive 108 rear hub
With 108 points of engagement, Rapid Drive gives you nearly instant acceleration instead of a clunky lag when you step on the pedals. You get smooth, immediate power to blast out of corners and hammer through the rough stuff. And that extra pedal ratchet adds control that can make all the difference when tackling a tricky climb.
27.5˝ fat tyres
More efficient 27.5" fat tyres keep you rolling faster, especially on groomed or packed snow.
Use the remote lever to lower your saddle so it's out of your way when you're descending and cornering.
