The Details

The Fathom's 27.5 wheels and light aluminium frame ensure that it excels on technical descents and steep ascents. Despite being a hardtail, the mountain bike doesn't compromise traction due to the high-quality, larger tyres fitted to the bike.

The Giant Fathom also features a more relaxed head angle meaning that comfort is maintained despite the potential for aggressive riding. The headset is also hand-built and, coupled with the high-volume tyres, provides responsive handling, ideal for taking on rugged trails.

Giant has also fitted the hardtail mountain bike with a dropper post meaning that riders can shave seconds on descents by lowering their centre of gravity.

Key features:

  • 130mm suspension
  • Lightweight aluminium frame
  • 27.5 wheels
  • High-volume tyres
  • Dropper seatpost

Our Verdict

Lightweight and agile, the combination of a 130mm suspension fork and 27.5 wheels with wide rim and high-volume tyres make the Giant Fathom 1 a formidable and fun companion when taking on trails.
