Details

Marlin 5 is a trail-worthy daily rider that's perfectly suited for everyday adventures, on and off the trail. It features a trail-savvy frame with a suspension fork, 9-speed Shimano CUES shifting, and mounts for a rack and kickstand that make it an ideal choice for 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 aluminum frame with internal routing to protect your cables and add to the bike's sleek look, an upgraded 9-speed Shimano CUES 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
- Marlin 5 is a great ride for all your adventures. It's also versatile and a popular ride on college campuses because the rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorize and haul a load.

Why you'll love it
- Marlin Gen 3 gives you serious trail capability, with big tire clearance and slack, confidence-boosting geometry that keeps you stable from singletrack to city
- Rack and fender mounts make it easy to accessorize, so your mountain bike can double as a rugged commuter
- Its ThruSkew system is safer, simpler, and stronger, plus it makes removing the rear wheel easy for flat fixes in a pinch
- Internal routing makes it easy to add a dropper post that lets you lower your saddle on the fly for more confident descending
- Marlin models in sizes XXS and XS have a curved top tube and lower standover height that makes it easier for smaller riders to mount and dismount
