Giant Fathom 3 Hardtail Mountain Bike

Even Giant's least expensive Fathom trail mountain bike comes impressively spec'd with Aluxx SL frame, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and Maxxis tubeless tyres.

  • Fitted with Maxxis Ardent 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 Grade alloy 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/Alivio 2x19 drivetrain with Shadow Plus rear mech offers a very decent range of gears 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

Here's how Giant describe their Fathom 3

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 120mm-travel fork
  • Shimano Deore/Alivio 2x9 speed drivetrain
  • Shimano M315 hydraulic disc brakes
  • Giant XC-2 Disc wheelset with Maxxis Ardent tubeless tyres
  • Colour: Yellow/Black/Blue
