2021 Trek Marlin 7 Womens hardtail mountain bike in Nautical Navy

The 2021 Trek Marlin 7 Women’s hardtail mountain bike in Nautical Navy/Miami Green 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. Marlin Women’s 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. The larger frames (M and ML) have a straight top tube because taller riders with longer legs typically don’t have the same issues with standover height. 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 2×9 drivetrain, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and a low-profile Shimano Shadow rear derailleur that’s designed to avoid snagging on trail debris. What makes this a women’s specific model? It has the same spec as the men’s except the max size is either a Large (L) or a Medium/Large (M/L) also included is a women’s specific saddle. 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 2x drivetrain gives you all the gears you need and none you don’t Like every Trek, it’s backed by a lifetime warranty
