Trek Marlin

The Marlin  is a trail-worthy daily rider that's perfectly suited for everyday adventures, on and off the trail. A front suspension fork with 100 mm of travel, 21 speeds and mounts for a rack and kickstand make it an ideal choice for new 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 Alpha Silver Aluminium frame with internal routing to protect your cables and add to the bike's sleek look, 21 speeds, a wide range of gearing so you always have the right gear for your terrain, hydraulic disc brakes that feel smoother than mechanical disc brakes and a suspension fork with 100 mm of travel – that's the same amount favoured by most cross-country racers.

Bicycle rental company Paarl

The final word

It’s built in Trek's MTB heritage, making it more than capable of taking on trail adventures. But it's also versatile, and Marlin  is a popular ride on college campuses because the rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorise and haul a load.

Why you'll love it

  1. It's a real mountain bike that's also perfectly suited to daily commutes, rides around campus or just getting from A to B on any surface
  2. 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
  3. It has separate brake and gear levers (a feature that's common on more expensive mountain bikes) so you can fine-tune the positioning for comfort
  4. Rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorise, so your mountain bike can double as a rugged commuter
  5. Like every Trek, it's backed by a lifetime warranty
