The tech you get

A lightweight aluminium frame with internal routing to protect your cables and add to the bike’s sleek look, an upgraded 9-speed Shimano CUES drivetrain, a wide range of gearing so you always have the right gear for your terrain, powerful hydraulic disc brakes and a terrain-smoothing suspension fork with a lockout.

The final word

The Marlin 5 is a great ride for all your adventures. It’s also versatile and a popular ride on college campuses because the rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorise and haul a load.
