When you’re ready for longer days on the bike, bigger challenges on the trail and all the fun of the full mountain biking experience, you’re ready for Marlin!

Product Description

Marlin 5 is a trail-worthy daily rider that’s perfectly suited for everyday adventures, on and off the trail. A front suspension fork with 100 mm of travel, 21 speeds and mounts for a rack and kickstand make it an ideal choice for new trail riders or anyone looking for a comfortable, stable commuter with the ruggedness of a real mountain bike.

It’s right for you if…

  • You’re new to the trail
  • You want a serious mountain bike that doubles as a commuter
  • and you want it all at exceptional value.

The tech you get

  • A lightweight Alpha Silver Aluminium frame.
  • 21 speeds, so you never need to pedal too hard or gently on terrain that varies in elevation.
  • Hydraulic disc brakes that feel smoother than mechanical disc brakes.
  • A suspension fork with 100 mm of travel – that’s the same amount favoured by most cross-country racers.

The final word

Built in Trek’s MTB heritage, and more than capable of taking on trail adventures. But it’s also versatile. It’s a popular ride on college campuses because the rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorise and carry a load.

Why you’ll love it

  1. It’s a real mountain bike that’s also perfectly suited to daily commutes, rides around campus or just getting from A to B on any surface
  2. Smaller frame sizes (13.5˝ and 15.5˝) 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.
