    Summary

    Expirience with the Giant Fathom 29 1 | V1

    Giant Fathom 29 1 | V1 Review The Fathom 29 1 | V1 may not be an iconic trail hardtail, but the team at Giant from Taiwan is aiming to captivate a slice of the fiercely competitive market with it nonetheless. Anyone who has no concrete preferences when it comes to handling, can´t go wrong with the Trailbike von Giant. Because his handling is pleasantly balanced. When sitting in the saddle, the posture is neither overly sporty, nor uber-comfortable. This should make the Giant suite the taste of most bikers. Heavy riders over 85 kilos aren´t likely to encounter too many problems with the high weight of 13,9 kg. For lighter riders, this could be a disturbance. For trail lovers, one point dominates: the Giant Fathom 29 1 | V1 scores in the decent with an extremely good geometry, a high-quality suspension and grippy tires. The guarantee of 25 years proves that Giant puts a lot of trust in its products.
