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, SRAM 1x12 drivetrain, dropper post, 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, an 80mm Manitou Mastodon suspension fork with an air spring and lockout feature, a wide-range SRAM NX/SX 1x12 drivetrain, SRAM Level T brakes, a dropper post, and SUNringlé Mulefüt wheels paired with a 108T Rapid Drive hub for instant engagement, and extra-grippy 27.5x4.5˝ Bontrager Gnarwhal TLR tires.
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.
