Spring, summer, winter or fall, the physics remain the same: A lighter bike does everything wth less effort.

The Farley 9.6 is built around a superlight OCLV Mountain carbon fiber frame and OCLV carbon fiber Haru fork, making every alloy frame feel heavy and clumsy underneath you. The frameset is not only light, but also tremendously strong for razor-sharp handling and power delivery. Adjustable Stranglehold thru-axle rear dropouts let you alter the wheelbase up to 15mm to dial in handling in a wide range of trail conditions. A tapered head tube/steerer tube all but eliminates front-end flex, improving handling prowess further. Thru-axle fork dropouts add an extra dash of handling precision. The Farley 9.6 features a polymer Carbon Armor downtube shield to ward off rock strikes. Internal routing for a remote dropper post and external routing for hydraulic brake lines make servicing the Farley 9.6 simple. Bottle mounts aren't forgotten. We recommend hot cider in your water bottle.

A fatbike relies on enormous tires to gain control on snow, ice, slush, dirt and mud. The wider the tires, the better the grip. The previous generation of fatbikes used 26" wheels, proving a very large ground contact patch when combined with 3.8" tires. The Farley 9.6, however, uses 27.5" wheels, and 4.5" wide Barbegazi Team Issue tubeless-ready tires. This gives the Farley 9.6 even more grip for riding in slippery, snowy and messy conditions. Converting to tubeless eliminates over 2 pounds (!!) of rotating mass out of the wheels, making the Farley 9.6 even quicker off the start line and out of tight corners. Alloy SUNringlé Mulefüt 80 SL wheels are laced to Bontrager alloy hubs with stout 15mm thru-axle skewers. The rear hub's 108T RapidDrive freehub almost completely removes "free play"; the delay between pushing down on the pedals and actually getting power into the rear wheel. A pretty useful feature when traversing technical terrain or icy rock gardens.

SRAM produces the Farley 9.6's single-ring drivetrain, reducing mechanical complexity and weight. SRAM's 12-speed GX Eagle rear shifter, GX Eagle rear derailleur, 30T GX Eagle crankset, 11-50T Eagle cassette and GX Eagle chain all function seamlessly for lightning-quick operation and long service life. SRAM also supplies the Level TL hydraulic disc brakes that use DOT fluid for especially cold conditions. A Bontrage Arvada saddle sits atop an alloy seatpost, while an accessory-ready alloy Bontrager Elite Blendr stem, alloy Rhythm Comp handlebar and ESI Chunky grips complete the cockpit.
