The Trek Marlin is the perfect entry level MTB with the capability to double up as a rugged commuter.
The Marlin is constructed of Alpha Silver Aluminium to provide you with a lightweight yet stiff frame at home on the trail, rough roads, or even the occasional paved path. The frame boasts a plethora of mounts that allow you to turn your trail machine into a rugged commuter-perfect if you have a multi-surfaced ride to work. The rack mounts allow you to easily install panniers for your luggage needs, whilst the kickstand makes for easy storage off the saddle.
The 2020 Marlin sees a slimlined drivetrain; the Shimano Altus 2×8 system provides you with all the gears you need and none of those you don’t. With 16 speeds at your disposal and reliable, smooth shifting performance, you’ve got the means to go anywhere. The Marlin also features a Suntour front suspension fork with 100mm of travel that will make for a comfortable ride whilst keeping you firmly in control over rougher terrain. Tektro hydraulic disc brakes provide great stopping power and modulation in all conditions, so you can commute or shred with confidence whatever the weather. The gear levers and brake levers are also seperate to allow for fine tuning-a feature normaly reserved for more expensive machines.
