Product Description

Details

Giant Fathom 2 2018

The Giant Fathom trail-ready hardtail mountain features Shimano M-315 hydraulic disc brakes, Shimano Deore 2x10 gearing and, most remarkably, it rolls on tubeless tyres.

  • Maxxis Ardent 27.5x2.25" Tubeless Tyres
  • Fitted with tubeless tyres, previously reserved for Giant's Pro-quality £2,000-plus bicycles
  • Giant so believe in the benefits of tubeless tyres (improved cushioning, traction and puncture resistance) they are now fitting them as standard on more and more of their 2018 bikes from around £1,000 - More on tubeless tyres
  • The frame is built with the lightest and most compliant ALUXX SLR-Grade MTB alloy tubing that Giant manufacture
  • That's some claim when you consider Giant are the world's largest manufacturer of aluminium bicycle tubing
  • Proper trail geometry
  • The slack 67˚ head tube angle improves stability for confident downhilling
  • The steep-ish 73.5˚ seat tube angle makes it easier to ride out the saddle and boost yourself up climbs
  • The Shimano Deore 2x10 drivetrain with Shadow Plus rear mech offers an exceptional range of gearing for all terrain via its 26/36 chainset and 11-42 cassette
  • Shimano M-315 hydraulic disc brakes bring Shimano reliability to the benefits of good quality hydraulic disc brakes

Here's how Giant describe their Fathom 2

GET YOUR DOSE OF SINGLETRACK ON A FUN HARDTAIL THAT PUTS YOU IN CONTROL. CLIMB, CORNER AND DESCEND WITH CONFIDENCE.

With its lightweight ALUXX SL aluminum frame and trail-friendly geometry, Fathom is a great choice for XC terrain and singletrack shredding. It blends the efficient ride quality of a classic hardtail with the can-do capabilities of an all-round off-roader. Engineered to optimize its 27.5 wheel platform, it has trail-friendly geometry including a more relaxed head angle made for a 120mm suspension fork. Tubeless ready.

  • ALUXX SL-grade aluminum frame
  • SR Suntour Raidon XC LO-R DS 120mm-travel fork with 15mm thru-axle
  • Shimano Deore 2x10 speed drivetrain
  • Shimano M315 hydraulic disc brakes
  • Giant XC-2 Disc wheelset with Maxxis Ardent tubeless tyres
  • Colour: Matte/Gray/Neon Orange
