Trek Marlin 5 2019 Mountain Bike
Who is this bike for?
Riders looking for a partner for offroad adventures on singletrack and trails. Cross-country hardtails are about covering big distances, whether in a race or riding with your friends. Cross-Country bikes use forks with 80 to 120mm of travel, and are sometimes equipped with a fork lockout to make them even more efficient on smooth ground.
About the Bike
Marlin 5 is a trail-worthy daily rider that's perfectly suited for everyday adventures, on and off the trail. A front suspension fork with 100mm 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. You're new to the trail and want a serious mountain bike that doubles as a commuter—and you want it all at an exceptional value.
A lightweight Alpha Silver Aluminum frame, 21 speeds, a wide range of gearing so you never need to pedal too hard or easy on terrain that varies in elevation, hydraulic disc brakes that feel smoother than mechanical disc brakes, and a suspension fork with 100mm of travel—that's the same amount favored by most cross country racers. Built in Trek's MTB heritage, and more than capable of taking on trail adventures. But it's also versatile. It's a popular ride on college campuses because the rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorize and haul a load.
