Marlin 5 is a trail-worthy daily rider that's perfectly suited for everyday adventures, on and off the trail. A suspension fork, 21 speeds 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 shift cable and brake hose routing to protect your cables and add to the bike's sleek look, 21 speeds, a wide range of gearing so you always have the right gear for your terrain, powerful hydraulic disc brakes and a suspension fork that takes the edge off bumps and rough terrain.

The final word

It’s built in Trek's MTB heritage, so you get 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.


The Walkthrough

favorite_borderWhy you'll love it

  1. 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
  2. Smaller frame sizes (XS and S) have short-reach brake levers that make it easier and more comfortable for riders with smaller hands to brake confidently
  3. Marlin models in XS and S frame sizes have a curved top tube and a lower standover height that makes it easier for smaller riders to mount and dismount
  4. Rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorise, so your mountain bike can double as a rugged commuter
  5. Like every Trek, it's backed by a lifetime warranty
