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.
