Farley 7 is the mountain biker's fat bike. It's built to feel like a traditional mountain bike with way more capability. The lightweight aluminum frame, 1x11 Shimano drivetrain, and Manitou Mastodon fork make it the ideal ride for trail-shredders who want to get rad in every season.
It's right for you if...
You want your fat bike to feel like your traditional mountain bike. Or, you're riding a fat bike year-round and want to put your money into the parts that really matter, like a performance drivetrain and a quality suspension fork.
The tech you get
A lightweight Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame with Stranglehold dropouts, a Manitou Mastodon suspension fork with an air spring and lockout feature, a wide-range 1x11 Shimano XT/SLX drivetrain, extra-wide SUNringle Mulefut wheels paired with extra-grippy 27.5x4.5 Bontrager Gnarwhal TLR tires, and a Bontrager dropper post.
The final word
This is a fat bike that rides with the handling characteristics of a traditional trail bike—only it's a lot more versatile. You're getting a great frame and a performance parts group, but you're really paying for the incredible capability of the Manitou Mastodon fork.
Why you'll love it
1 - If you were under the impression that fat bikes were sluggish, this bike will change your mind
2 - The combination of the Manitou Mastodon fork and 4.5-inch tires make it easy to charge through snowy trails and rock gardens alike
3 - It's a four-season freedom machine that lets you ride outside all year long
4 - The 27.5x4.5 tires deliver more speed and traction than their 26-inch counterparts
