Farley 9.8 is the lightest fat bike we make. It has an OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, a carbon fork, carbon wheels, and a 1x12 SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain with the widest range of gears for varying terrain. This is a mountain bike with no compromises, and it's all about going as fast as possible in every season.
It's right for you if...
You don't like fat biking - you love it! You make the biggest investment in your fat bike because you have the best time riding it, and you're willing to shell out for the lightest, fastest, fat bike we make because you know there's a return in fun, speed, and adventure.
The tech you get
A lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with Stranglehold dropouts, a Bontrager Haru rigid carbon fork, a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain with an extra-wide gear range, and Tubeless Ready carbon Bontrager Wampa wheels paired with 27.5x4.5 Bontrager Barbegazi TLR tires.
The final word
It's the lightest fat bike we make. A carbon frame, carbon wheels, carbon fork, and top-shelf SRAM drivetrain come together in Farley 9.8 to make a high-performance ride that won't be slowed by foul weather, deep snow, or gnarly terrain.
Why you'll love it
1 - This is a fat bike made without compromise: it's the lightest, fastest model we make
2 - It's a four-season freedom machine that lets you ride outside all year long
3 - The 27.5x4.5 tires deliver more speed and traction than their 26-inch counterparts
4 - It's easy to set up tubeless - and when you do, you'll save weight and your ride will get even faster
