Farley 5 is our best value fat bike and the perfect gateway to all-season freedom. It rolls over snow, sand, roots, and rocks with the stability and traction of a monster truck on beefy 27.5x4.5˝ tires. A 1x Shimano drivetrain, lightweight aluminum frame, and carbon fork make it a great choice for anyone who wants to ride a mountain bike year-round, no matter the weather.
It's right for you if...
You're likely to ride year-round, even when it's snowing, and want a fat tire bike that gives you extraordinary capability and traction at a great value.
The tech you get
A lightweight Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame with Stranglehold dropouts, internal derailleur and dropper post routing, a Bontrager Haru carbon fork, a wide-range Shimano Deore 1x10 drivetrain, SRAM Level hydraulic disc brakes, and Tubeless Ready SUNringlé Mulefüt wheels paired with extra-grippy 27.5x4.5˝ Bontrager Gnarwhal TLR tires.
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 trainer through the winter, you won't find a better value than Farley 5.
