The Marlin 8 is a confidence-boosting trail bike with updated geometry that gives you more control on singletrack without skipping on features for everyday use, like mounts for racks and a kickstand. It's built for years of progress thanks to 12-speed SRAM shifting and an upgraded RockShox air-spring suspension fork.
You want a bike that's ready to progress with you on the trail, and is versatile enough for daily riding to school, work, and grocery shopping.
A lightweight aluminum frame with modern trail riding geometry and internal routing that keeps cables protected and keeps the bike looking sleek. An air-spring RockShox fork that's lighter and more adjustable than a coil spring, wide-range SRAM shifting, and the serious stopping power of hydraulic disc brakes.
The Marlin 8 is a progressive trail bike ready for building skills on the singletrack and taking on daily life too. It packs in premium features where you want them so you can build skills for years to come.
With 8 different sizes, the Marlin has a bike made to fit every rider. Each frame is equipped with smart wheel sizing, with XXS frames rolling on 26" wheels, and wheel sizes increasing proportionally along with frame sizes, so every rider gets the fit they need.
The secret to Marlin's popularity is a real trail-savvy mountain bike frame that's upgrade-compatible, so it can grow with you as you take on bigger trails and tougher features.
Goodbye open dropouts. The Thru Skewer is a better, stronger, more precisely aligned rear wheel retention system that keeps your wheel more secure than quick-release skewers while still using the standard 135 mm rear hub spacing.
