WHO IS IT FOR?
So, what is the Giant Fathom 29?
It’s part of Giant’s top-end recreational range of mountain bikes. It’s for those riders who either want an affordable performance mountain bike or those who are eager to start mountain biking (at an amateur level).
Component selection on both Fathom 29’s has been chosen to suit the rigours of mountain biking. Stuff like smooth air-sprung suspension, powerful hydraulic disc brakes and durable mountain bike specific drivetrain.
WHAT IS THE FATHOM 29 FOR?
The Fathom 29 has been crafted to for a variety of applications.
Riding with the kids, general fitness or a foray into the world of mountain biking. If it’s the latter then the components, geometry and handling of the Fathom 29 will see you enjoying yourself and safe.
If you’re going to be mountain biking, some of the places where the Fathom 29 will be at home are Lysterfield Park, the You Yangs (Kurrajong side) and anywhere else where the trails are smooth, flowy and with gentle undulations.
THE FATHOM FRAME
Both Fathom 29’s are made from aluminium (referred to as ALUXX SL). And it’s not just any aluminium frame; it’s the best aluminium frame that Giant uses on their mountain bikes.
Why’s the ALUXX SL frame so good?
It’s a double-butted aluminium frame (the frame has 2 wall thicknesses). This means Giant engineers can make the frame lighter and stiffer and they can do this by removing material where it’s not needed and add material in highly stressed areas
