Trek’s Farley fat bikes have impressed us with their thoughtful features and geometry that makes them fun to ride in any season. Trek is upping the ante, by introducing a full-suspension version of the Farley. The Farley EX will come in one carbon and one alloy version this August.
- 120mm of front- and rear-suspension travel
- 197mm rear end
- 121mm press-fit bottom bracket
- 27.5 and 26in wheel compatible
- One carbon and one alloy version
- Available in August
The carbon Farley EX 9.8 as well as the alloy Farley EX 8 use front ends that bear a striking resemblance to the Fuel EX. Like the Fuel EX, the Farley EX has 120mm of front- and rear-suspension travel. Both models feature Trek’s usual range of suspension technologies, including the ABP rear suspension, a Full Floater lower shock linkage and RE:aktiv tuning on the Fox float shock.
Both the bikes have 197mm rear hub spacing and use 121mm press-fit bottom brackets. The Farley EX 9.8 has internal routing through the carbon front triangle, while the alloy Farley EX 8 has external routing, save for the dropper seatpost.
A Pike or Yari for fat bikes would be a welcome addition
