Marlin 4 is the perfect gateway to trail riding. It’s ideal for new riders who want a mountain bike with knobby tyres, that can double as a rugged commuter. Disc brakes, front suspension, 21 speeds and mounts for a rack and fenders make this a great bike for new trail riders and campus commuters alike.
It’s right for you if…
You want an introductory mountain bike at an incredible price, but also want a commuter that’s rugged enough to hop kerbs on the way to class.
The tech you get
A lightweight aluminium frame with internal shift cable and brake hose routing to protect your cables and add to the bike’s sleek look, 21 speeds, a wide range of gearing so you always have the right gear for your terrain, powerful hydraulic disc brakes and a suspension fork that takes the edge off bumps and rough terrain.
The final word
It’s built in Trek’s mountain bike heritage and great for any adventure. The rack and mudguard mounts make it a great choice for commuters who want to get a little rad on the way to class or the shops.
Why you’ll love it
- 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
- Rack and mudguard mounts make it easy to accessorise, so your mountain bike can double as a rugged commuter
- 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

- Like every Trek, it’s backed by a lifetime warranty
Marlin – Oversized performance for an undersized price
Marlin is a trail-tough mountain bike that’s ready for any all-terrain adventure, whether you’re exploring the forest on singletrack or navigating the urban jungle. It’s durable, versatile, easy to accessorize, and just as much at home on potholed city streets as on the dirt.
From dirt to daily commutes
Real mountain bike parts for ultimate versatility. Marlin’s stylish frame has internal cable routing, which can help your cables last longer by protecting them from the elements. Plus, it’s easy to outfit Marlin for any adventure with the integrated rack and kickstand mounts.
Fit for every rider
Marlin is available in a wide range of sizes (XS – XXL) with unique fit features on the smallest sizes. Marlin comes in seven frame sizes to suit riders of any height, and Smart Wheel Size ensures you’re on the fastest wheel that fits. The smallest sizes even come with short-reach brake levers and narrower handlebars that give smaller riders better comfort and control.
Curved top tubes on smaller sizes
Lower standover for confidence and easier dismounting.
Smart Wheel Size
Ride the fastest wheel that fits! S and XS frames come with 27.5˝. M and bigger get 29er.
Heart of a race bike
Marlin is built on a race-inspired frame with high-value components and loads of features you’d typically find only on pricier mountain bikes. Plus, it’s backed by a limited lifetime warranty and the world’s best retailer support network.
Add it all up, and you get a fun, common-sense entry into the wild world of singletrack on a bike you won’t out-pace as your skills advance and your rides get faster and longer.
