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 an exceptional value.

The tech you get

Marlin 5 has 21 speeds and a wide range of gearing, which means 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 100mm suspension fork with a lockout feature—that's the same amount of travel favored by most cross country racers.

The final word

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