Details:

  • Marlin 8 is a race-worthy mountain bike that won't break the bank. The smooth, lightweight RockShox fork, tubeless ready wheels, and wide-range 1x drivetrain make this model the best choice for new riders who want a fast cross country hardtail that will hold its own against our higher-end race bikes.

It's right for you if...

  • You want a race-ready mountain bike with upgrades on the parts that make a big difference in performance, like a lighter, higher quality suspension fork, wide-range 1x drivetrain, and tubeless ready wheels.

The tech you get

  • A light frame with internal cable routing, a smoother-feeling RockShox Judy Silver fork with a Solo Air spring and TurnKey hydraulic lockout, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, tubeless ready Bontrager Kovee wheels, and a simple 1x12 drivetrain that ditches the front derailleur for less clutter and easier operation. The wide-range 11-50 cassette gives you all the gears you need for clawing up climbs and blazing down descents.

The final word

  • The tubeless ready wheels, RockShox suspension, wide range of gearing, and quality parts make it an awesome choice for new mountain bikers who know they want a serious bike for their money. It's fully capable of taking on big trail adventures and XC races.

Why you'll love it

  • This is one of our most popular bikes for good reason. You get all the value, plus all the versatility—it's a totally race-worthy mountain bike with rear rack mounts if you use it for commuting too
  • The RockShox fork's Solo Air spring can easily be adjusted for a specific rider weight, and it's lighter than a coil spring
  • Setting your wheels up tubeless reduces the overall weight of your bike and the chances you'll get a flat
  • The 1x drivetrain gives you all the gears you need and none you don't
  • Marlin models in XXS through S frame sizes have a curved top tube and a lower standover height that makes it easier for smaller riders to mount and dismount

Wheel size:

  • Size XX-Small: 26-inch
  • Sizes X-Small – Small: 27.5-inch
  • Sizes Medium – X-Large: 29-inch
