Trek Marlin 6
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 smoother-shifting 2×8 drive train. 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 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, an efficient 2×8 drive train, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, and a suspension fork that takes the edge off bumps and rough terrain, 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
Marlin 6 gives you upgrades you’ll notice on every ride, like the suspension lockout and really smooth shifting Shimano drive train. 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.
