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.
Marlin 5 is a trail-worthy daily rider that’s perfectly suited for everyday adventures, on and off the trail. A suspension fork, 2×8 drivetrain, 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 and you’re looking for a real mountain bike that doubles as a commuter – and you want it all at an exceptional value.
The tech you get
A lightweight aluminium frame with internal routing to protect your cables and add to the bike’s sleek look, 2×8 drivetrain, a wide range of gearing so you always have the right gear for your terrain, powerful hydraulic disc brakes and a terrain-smoothing suspension fork with a lockout.
The final word
The Marlin 5 is a great ride for all your adventures. But it’s also versatile, and Marlin 5 is a popular ride on college campuses because the rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorise and haul a load.
