The Marlin 8 is a race-worthy mountain bike that won?t break the bank. The smooth, lightweight RockShox fork, tubeless-ready wheels and wide-range 1x drive train make this model the best choice for new riders who want a fast cross-country hardtail that will hold its own against our higher-end race bikes.
You want a race-ready mountain bike with upgrades on the parts that make a big difference in performance, like a lighter, higher-quality suspension fork, wide-range 1x drivetrain and tubeless-ready wheels.
A light frame with internal cable routing, a smoother-feeling RockShox Judy Silver fork with a Solo Air spring and TurnKey hydraulic lockout, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, tubeless-ready Bontrager Kovee wheels and a simple 1x12 drivetrain that ditches the front derailleur for less clutter and easier operation. The wide-range 11-50 cassette gives you all the gears you need for clawing up climbs and blazing down descents.
The tubeless-ready wheels, RockShox suspension, wide range of gearing and quality parts make it an outstanding choice for new mountain bikers who know they want a serious bike for their money. It?s fully capable of taking on big trail adventures and XC races.
- This is one of our most popular bikes for good reason. You get all the value, plus all the versatility ? it's a totally race-worthy mountain bike, with rear rack mounts if you use it for commuting too
- The RockShox fork's Solo Air spring can easily be adjusted for a specific rider weight, and it's lighter than a coil spring
- Setting your wheels up tubeless reduces the overall weight of your bike and the chances that you?ll get a flat
- The 1x drivetrain gives you all the gears you need and none you don?t
- The Marlin models in XXS to S frame sizes have a curved top tube and a lower standover height that makes it easier for smaller riders to mount and dismount
Will my bike have a curved top tube?
Smaller frames have a top tube that dips down as it approaches the seat tube. This design makes for a lower standover height, which is good for shorter riders because it allows them to straddle their bike more easily. Larger frame sizes have a straight top tube because taller riders with longer legs typically don?t have the same issues with standover height.
Fit for every rider
Marlin comes in seven frame sizes to suit riders of any height, and Smart Wheel Size ensures you?re on the fastest wheel that fits. The smallest sizes even come with short-reach brake levers and narrower handlebars that give smaller riders better comfort and control.
High tech, high value
Marlin looks and feels great. It?s packed with features usually found only on more expensive bikes, like a stylish frame with internal shift cable and brake hose routing, which can help your cables last longer by protecting them from the elements.
