Quick Overview

Snow or dry land, the Farley EX 9.8 might be the ultimate off-roader


Color: Gloss Silver

Sizes: 17.5 and 19.5"

The Farley EX 9.8 is a bike built for 4-season adventures! Challenging cross-country trails are no longer faced with clenched teeth, but knowing grins. Trek's renowned OCLV Mountain carbon fiber is the perfect material for a mountain machine that needs to be incredibly strong and durable, as well as feather-light. When a bike needs to be responsive to every pedal stroke, climb with the eagerness of a crazed goat, and put up with every sudden dropoff, only the best will do. Adding Trek's exclusive Active Braking Pivot -or ABP- rear suspension was an easy choice, and the result is a fatbike that is never ruffled by choppy terrain and technical descents. Thanks to ABP, hard braking doesn't cause the rear shock to contract, ensuring control and comfort over every obsticle. The rear shock is installed in a Full Floater mount, guaranteeing faster suspension response over all manner of surfaces. The one-piece EVO upper suspension link resists torsional stress better than multi-piece units, preventing lateral stress on the shock for improved operation and service life. The Rear shock itself is a Fox Performance Float EVOL unit that has been tuned by Trek's Suspension Labs and their friends at Penske Racing Shocks. A 3-position RE:aktiv damper allows the rider to select how the shock will react during climbs, rolling trails and descents. 120mm of travel helps keep the Farley EX 9.8 upright during hard landings and root "fun houses". Up front, an air-adjustable Manitou Mastodon 34 Comp suspension fork handles the terrain with equal effectiveness. 120mm of travel helps soak up ugly rock gardens like a fresh sponge, while an E2 tapered steerer tube adds an extra helping of precision to the bike's handling. There's even an ABP damper lockout knob for roaring down hardpan or gravel roads.

Did we mention the wheels?

Oh, yeah. This 27.5" wheelset is made for rolling over technical terrain that also happens to be buried under snow. The Wampa Carbon 80 SL wheelset boasts a beefy width that commands a huge tire footprint in snow, dirt and mud. Did we mention Trek's OCLV carbon fiber is used for the rims? They're also tubeless-ready, giving the Farley EX 9.8 unheard-of levels of grip. Stout thru-axles improve hub bearing life as well as overall wheel stiffness. Bontrager's tubeless-ready 27.5x3.8" Hodag tires are possibly the best tires for all seasons, featuring an aggressive tread pattern and Inner Strength sidewalls for cut resistance. Reigning in speed is the job of a set of SRAM Guide RS hydraulic disc brakes with cross-drilled rotors to sweep debris and slush away.

SRAM also provides their latest 12-speed GX Eagle shifter, GX Eagle rear derailleur, 10-50T rear cassette and GX Eagle chain for durability, quick functionality and long service life. The SRAM Stylo Carbon crankset has a direct-mount 30T chainring with Narrow-Wide teeth for excellent chain retention over clattery rock gardens.

The Farley EX 9.8 covers the details well, like Control Freak internal cable routing for the Drop Line 125 dropper post. The dropper post's remote lever is mounted where the front shifter used to be for familiarity. The Drop Line handlebar/stem interface is the new 35mm diameter, reducing flex at a critical juncture. Did we mention the handlebar is also made from Trek's OCLV carbon fiber? Even the Bontrager Evoke 3 saddle has titanium rails.

Snow, slush, sand, singletrack, rock gardens, gravel roads, mud and even W.O.R.S. races are where the Farley EX 9.8 can thrive. All it needs is you.
