It's right for you if...

You're new to the trail but have serious single-track aspirations, and want a race-worthy mountain bike with upgrades on the parts that make a big difference in performance, like a higher-quality suspension fork.

The tech you get

The flagship model of the Marlin line-up has a high-quality RockShox fork with a lockout feature and 100 mm of travel, a 27-speed drivetrain and a low-profile Shimano Shadow rear derailleur that's made to avoid snagging on trail debris. The quality fork and parts make Marlin 7 fully capable of taking on off-road marathon rides and XC races.

The final word

The RockShox suspension and wider range of gearing make it the best choice in the Marlin line-up for new mountain bikers who know that they want a serious bike for their money.
