Product Description

The Marlin 6 is right for you if…

You’re testing the waters of off-road riding, and want a real mountain bike at great value, with a wide range of gears to cover more ground on the road and trail.

The tech you get

  • A lightweight Alpha Silver Aluminium frame with internal routing. This protects your cables and adds to the bike’s sleek look.
  • It has an efficient 2×8 drivetrain,
  • Hydraulic disc brakes that feel smoother than mechanical disc brakes and
  • A suspension fork with 100 mm of travel and a lockout feature that lets you temporarily lock the suspension for better efficiency while climbing.

Why you’ll love it

  1. The 2x drivetrain gives you all the gears you need and none you don’t
  2. Smaller frame sizes (XS and S) have short-reach brake levers that make it easier and more comfortable for riders with smaller hands to brake confidently
  3. It has separate brake and gear levers (a feature that’s common on more expensive mountain bikes) so you can fine-tune the positioning for comfort
  4. Rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorise, so your mountain bike can double as a rugged commuter
  5. Like every Trek, it’s backed by a lifetime warranty

The final word on the Marlin 6:

Performance features like suspension lockout, stronger double-walled rims and hydraulic disc brakes. It’s also equipped with rack and kickstand mounts and a wide range of gears. These design details make it a great choice if your mountain bike doubles as your commuter.
