Description

The Marlin 8 is right for you if…

You’re new to the trail, but you’re pretty darn sure you’ll fall in love with mountain biking, and want a race-worthy mountain bike with upgrades on the parts that make a big difference in performance, like a higher-quality suspension fork, wide-range 1x drive train and tubeless-ready wheels.

The tech you get

A light frame with internal cable routing, a smoother-feeling RockShox Judy Silver fork with a TurnKey hydraulic lockout, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, tubeless-ready Bontrager Kovee wheels and a simple 1x drive train 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 final word

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 off-road marathon rides and XC races.

 

Why you’ll love it

  1. 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
  2. Setting your wheels up tubeless reduces the overall weight of your bike and the chances that you’ll get a flat
  3. It’s really fun to ride, and feels like a much more expensive mountain bike
  4. The 1x drive train gives you all the gears you need and none you don’t
  5. 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
