The Marlin range is engineered by Trek to provide easy access to the trails. If you're looking to begin adventures away from the main roads, with friends, family or solo then look no further. The lightweight Alpha Silver Aluminium frame is backed by Trek's lifetime warranty and features a dropped top-tube which makes getting on and off the Marlin easy. 100mm of suspension provided by the SR Suntour coil-sprung fork takes the imperfections out of the trail, not only making riding more comfortable but more enjoyable. A Shimano Altus 8-speed groupset is reliable and provides smooth shifting between gears which are internally routed for protection against bad weather. Finally, integrated rack mounts make carrying cargo easy whether it's a packed lunch for a family day out or camping equipment for a real adventure.
Get into MTB
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.
A lightweight Alpha Silver Aluminium frame with a sloping top tube on smaller frame sizes (XS and S) for better standover height and more confidence on the trail, plus internal routing to protect your cables and add to the bike's sleek look. It also has Women-Specific Design touchpoints like the saddle, bars and grips, an efficient 2x8 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.
