It's right for you if...

You're testing the waters of off-road riding, and want a real mountain bike at great value, with a wide range of gears to cover more ground on the road and trail.

The tech you get

The Marlin 6 has 24 speeds, a wide-range cassette so you can always find the right gear for your terrain, 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.

The final word

The Marlin 6 is built to stand up to the trail, but also equipped with rack and mudguard mounts and a wider range of gears that make it a great choice if your mountain bike doubles as your commuter.

The Walkthrough

favorite_borderWhy we love it

  1. Lots of gears, so you can cover a lot of ground fast, without ever pedalling too gently or too hard
  2. The flat mountain-style handlebar and disc brakes keep you in control, on or off the trail
  3. 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
  4. Rack and mudguard mounts make it easy to accessorise, so your mountain bike can double as a rugged commuter
