Product Description


Giant Fathom 2 29ER 2018

With its tubeless Maxxis IKON tyres, this 29er Giant Fathom 2 trail hardtail might offer offer even more speed potential than the 27.5" wheel version.

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 Icon 29x2.2 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 Giant's lighter weight ALUXX SL alloy tubing
  • Proper 29er trail geometry
  • The slack 69˚ 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 Alivio Deore 2x29 drivetrain with Shadow Plus rear mech offers an exceptional range of gearing for all terrain via its 24/38 chainset and 12-36 cassette
  • Shimano M-315 hydraulic disc brakes bring Shimano reliability to the benefits of good quality hydraulic disc brakes
