It's right for you if...
You don't just want to ride trails through the winter—you want to ride fast. You already know you love every aspect of fat biking, and are looking for a faster ride with better performance to take on bigger adventures.
The tech you get
A lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with Stranglehold dropouts and internal derailleur and dropper post routing, a Bontrager Haru rigid carbon fork, a wide-range SRAM NX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, SRAM Level T hydraulic disc brakes, and Tubeless Ready SUNringlé Mulefüt wheels paired with 27.5x4.5˝ Bontrager Barbegazi TLR tires.
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.

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.
Tubeless Ready wheels & tires
Tubeless Ready rims and tires make it easy to ditch the tubes so you get better traction, fewer flats, and less weight. Just add TLR rim strips, valves, and sealant.

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.
