Description

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 aluminum frame with internal shift cable and brake hose routing to protect your cables and add to the bike’s sleek look, an efficient 2×8 drivetrain, 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 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.

Why you’ll love it
– The 2x drivetrain gives you all the gears you need and none you don’t
– Smaller frame sizes (XS and S) have short-reach brake levers that make it easier and more comfortable for riders with smaller hands to brake confidently
– Marlin models in XS and S frame sizes have a curved top tube and a lower standover height that makes it easier for smaller riders to mount and dismount
– Rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorize, so your mountain bike can double as a rugged commuter
– Like every model in the Marlin family, it’s backed by Trek’s lifetime warranty
