The Marlin 5 is a trail-worthy daily rider that's perfectly suited for everyday adventures, on and off the trail. A front suspension fork with 100 mm of travel, 21 speeds and mounts for a rack and mudguards make it an ideal choice for new trail riders or anyone looking for a comfortable, stable commuter with the ruggedness of a real mountain bike.

It's right for you if...

You're new to the trail and want a serious mountain bike that doubles as a commuter – and you want it all at exceptional value.

The tech you get

The Marlin 5 has 21 speeds and a wide range of gearing, which means that you never need to pedal too hard or easy on terrain that varies in elevation. It's equipped with hydraulic disc brakes that feel smoother than mechanical disc brakes and a 100 mm suspension fork with a lockout feature – that's the same amount of travel favoured by most cross-country racers.

Why we love it

  • It's 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
  • The flat mountain-style handlebar and disc brakes keep you in control, on or off the trail
  • 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 mudguard mounts make it easy to accessorise, so your mountain bike can double as a rugged commuter

The final word

The Marlin 5 is built according to Trek's MTB heritage, and is more than capable of taking on trail adventures. But it's also versatile. It's a popular ride on university campuses because the rack and mudguard mounts make it easy to accessorise and haul a load. The lockout feature on the fork lets you lock the suspension for the most efficient ride on smooth surfaces.

****NOTE: This bike is available for purchase online, but must be picked up from an approved store.
