It's right for you if...
You're likely to ride year-round, even when it's snowing, and want a fat tyre bike that gives you extraordinary capability and traction at great value.
The tech you get
A lightweight Alpha Platinum Aluminium frame with Stranglehold dropouts, internal derailleur and dropper post routing, a Bontrager Haru carbon fork, a wide-range Shimano Deore 1x10 drive train, SRAM Level hydraulic disc brakes and Tubeless Ready SUNringlé Mulefüt wheels paired with extra-grippy 27.5x4.5˝ Bontrager Gnarwhal TLR tyres.
The final word
Fat bikes are ridiculously fun. They're grippy and stable, but the best thing about them is that they get you outside in more seasons. If you're looking for a fun alternative to riding the roads or training through the winter, you won't find better value than Farley 5.
favorite_borderWhy you'll love it
- The Farley 5 is the perfect bike for breaking into the winter sports scene without breaking the bank
- It's an introductory model, but fully capable of taking on daily winter rides, fat bike races and even summer trails
- It's a four-season freedom machine that lets you ride outside all-year long
- The 27.5 x 4.5˝ tyres deliver more speed and traction than their 26˝ counterparts
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.
