Trek Marlin 5 Gen 2 Hardtail Mountain Bike 2022

Marlin 5 is a trail-worthy daily rider that's perfectly suited for everyday adventures, on and off the trail. A suspension fork, 2x8 drivetrain, and mounts for a rack and kickstand 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 you’re looking for a real mountain bike that doubles as a commuter – and you want it all at an exceptional value.

The tech you get

A lightweight aluminium frame with internal routing to protect your cables and add to the bike's sleek look, 2x8 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.

Why you'll 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
  • Smaller frame sizes (XXS, XS and S) have short-reach brake levers that make it easier and more comfortable for riders with smaller hands to brake confidently
  • The Marlin models in XXS to S frame sizes have a curved top tube and a lower standover height that makes it easier for smaller riders to mount and dismount
  • Rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorise, so your mountain bike can double as a rugged commuter
  • Like every Trek, it's backed by a lifetime warranty

The final word

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