Get your dose of singletrack on a fun hardtail that puts you in control. The combination of a lightweight hardtail frame, 130mm suspension fork and 27.5 wheels with wide rims and high-volume tires delivers loads of traction, speed and fun on the trail.
With its all-new ALUXX SL aluminum hardtail frame, quick-handling 27.5 wheels and high-volume tires, Fathom is a great choice for technical terrain and singletrack shredding. It blends the pure efficiency of a classic hardtail with the confident ride quality of larger tires that absorb bumps and give you more traction. The frame is engineered with a more relaxed head angle (66 degrees) that’s designed for a Giant Crest 34 suspension fork with 130mm of travel. Other trail-specific features include a Giant dropper seatpost with a handlebar-mounted remote, the new Giant Romero trail-riding saddle, wider Boost hub spacing for optimal wheel stiffness, and tubeless tires for improved traction and control with a reduced risk of flats.
