It's right for you if...

You already love the fat bike scene, and may even already own a hardtail fat bike, but now you're pushing all your chips in to get the most capable fat bike we offer.

The tech you get

A lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon main frame, a Manitou Mastodon fork, a FOX Performance Float EVOL rear shock with Trek's ultra-responsive RE:aktiv damper, a premium Bontrager Drop Line dropper post, a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain with an extra-wide gear range, and Tubeless Ready carbon Bontrager Wampa wheels paired with Bontrager Hodag 27.5x3.8˝ TLR tires.

The final word

Our best full suspension fat bike frame with the best mountain bike trims available. Farley EX 9.8 has a do-anything attitude and the performance to back it up. Warning: don't stand too close to this bike, because it can (and will) plow over whatever gets between it and a good time.

Sizing & fit

The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local Trek retailer.
