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 accessorise, 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.
The Marlin 6 is a cross-country mountain bike built to give you an efficient off-road ride with a suspension fork that locks out, and a simple 1x drivetrain. It’s made for mountain biking, but it’s also equipped with features like rack and kickstand mounts that make it a great choice for adventurous daily commutes.
It’s right for you if…
You’re testing the waters of off-road riding, and want a real mountain bike at a great value, with a wide range of gears to cover more ground on the road and trail.
The tech you get
A lightweight aluminium frame with internal routing to protect your cables and add to the bike’s sleek look, powerful hydraulic disc brakes and a simple 1×10 Shimano drivetrain that ditches the front derailleur for less clutter and easier operation. The wide-range cassette still gives you all the gears you need for big climbs and steep descents. Plus a suspension fork with a lever that lets you easily lock the suspension so you don’t waste energy on smooth terrain.
The final word
The Marlin 6 gives you upgrades that you’ll notice on every ride, like the smooth, simple shifting Shimano drivetrain. Extra-strong double-walled rims and powerful hydraulic disc brakes give you durability and stopping power for your most rugged adventures on the trail, in town, and everywhere in between.
