The 2023 Trek Marlin 7 Gen 2 Hardtail Mountain bike is where race-worthy mountain bikes begin. The Marlin 7 takes the great value Marlin frame and adds a smooth, lightweight RockShox fork and upgraded parts to make an exceptional cross country hardtail that will hold its own against higher-end race bikes.

All of the Trek Marlin bikes are built around a lightweight Alpha Silver Aluminium frame with internal routing to protect your cables and add to the bike's sleek look. The frame is set up for off-road riding but also comes with all the mounts you need for pannier racks and kickstands so it can double-up as a hardened commuter.

The Marlin comes in seven frame sizes to suit riders of any height, and Smart Wheel Size ensures you're on the fastest wheel that fits. The smallest sizes come with 27.5" rather than 29" wheels and even come with short-reach brake levers and narrower handlebars that give smaller riders better comfort and control.

The Marlin 7 is the flagship model of the Marlin line-up and has a high-quality RockShox fork with a lockout and 100 mm of travel, a 1 x 10 drivetrain, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and a low-profile Shimano Shadow rear derailleur that's designed to avoid snagging on trail debris.

This bike is perfect for

Riders who are new to mountain biking and want a serious single-track ready bike with race-ready parts for superior performance so you can take on off-road marathon rides and XC races as well as bossing your commute.

Key features

  • All the value, plus all the versatility – it's a race-worthy mountain bike, with rear rack mounts if you use it for commuting too
  • It's enjoyable to ride and feels like a much more expensive mountain bike
  • Great suspension at an even better price
  • The 1x drivetrain gives you all the gears you need and none you don't
  • Like every Trek, it's backed by a lifetime warranty

Mountain Bike Buying Guide

Mountain biking is an incredibly diverse sport. Mountain bikes now come in three main flavours. They are XC, Trail and Enduro.

XC – short for cross country, are quick race bikes. They will normally have 29” wheels and come with 100mm of suspension. If you are mainly going to be riding bridleways and natural trails in the South East of England, where our shops are, an XC bike will be the quickest and most efficient option.

Trail – these bikes are designed to be pedalled up and down hill and for use on bridleways and natural trails, but also at dedicated trail centres. They normally come with 130mm or 140mm of suspension travel and can have either 27.5” or 29” wheels, but 29” is quickly becoming the norm. Trail bikes are good all-rounders. They won’t be as fast as an XC bike on the flat but they can handle a lot more challenging terrain, and a few jumps. If you plan on taking your bike to trail centres in Wales, or to the Alps, then a trail bike may be your best option.

Enduro – enduro racing is a thing in and of itself but many people buy enduro bikes for ‘aggressive’ trail riding and uplift days at places like Bike Park Wales. This generally means challenging downhill trails with some big jumps. With around 160mm of suspension travel enduro bikes can take some big hits. They are designed to be efficient enough to pedal up hills but really come into their own when pointed downhill. You get enduro bikes in either 27.5” or 29” wheel sizes as well as mullet setups of 29 at the front and 27.5 at the back.


Men’s and women’s mountain bikes

Nearly all the mountain bikes we sell are now unisex. All of the big brands have gradually stopped doing dedicated men’s and women’s bikes over the last few years. Instead they are focussed on producing bikes in a bigger range of sizes. So, for instance, the Trek Marlin 5 is a unisex bike that now comes in sizes from XXS to XXL large. This means it will fit riders from 4’ 5” to 6’ 5” and everything in between.
