This Marlin 5 is 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. 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. 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. Rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorise.
What do you get?
The Marlin 5 has 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.
