Product Details

2017 Trek Marlin 7

Marlin takes its cue from light, fast XC bikes. The right wheel size for each frame size, performance pedigree, and unbeatable ride feel make Marlin the perfect trail rider.

When you're ready for longer days on the bike, bigger challenges on the trail, and all the fun of the full mountain biking experience, you're ready for Marlin.

XC light, mountain tough
Hydroformed Alpha Aluminum frame is race light, mountain strong, and ride tuned for peak performance.

Perfect fit
Our extended size range guarantees a better fit, so you get a better ride.

Limited lifetime warranty
These bikes are built to last, and backed by Trek's limited lifetime warranty.

Smart Wheel Size
One wheel size does not fit all. We put the right size wheel on every frame: 27.5” on 13.5” and 15.5” frames, 29er on 17.5” and up. Everyone wins.

Key features

- Ride the fastest wheel that fits with Smart Wheel Size
- Ride-tuned aluminum frame is XC light, mountain tough
- Extended size range gives you a better fit for a better ride

        On or off trail a comfortable durable bike. I love the adjustable front suspension. I did change the stock seat which was verrrry uncomfortable for me. The disc brakes stop on a dime. I has a Marlin 6 and like this one much better. Can't beat it for the price...

        Great bike, if you are contemplating getting this bike then GO FOR IT! Highly recommend. If you are deciding between the Marlin 6 and 7, get the 7; the suspension control makes it worth your money. All around great bike!

        This bike is perfect if you ride in the mountain and if you love off road. you can also easily jump with it and take risks tp have fun. this bike is very confortable and a long trip on it would not annoy you. You can go really fast on a downhill without panic, the brakes are excellent.

        Comments:

        This bike really impressed me. Was looking for a good hardtail to ride for under $1,100. I couldn't be happier with the Marlin 7. I rode much more expensive bikes and preferred this over them. Of course I changed the cranks, bottom bracket, pedals, grips, converted to a XT 1x10 setup, and got a better set of tires for my type of trails. All in all I am super pleased with this bike. I would buy it again and again. Compared it to many competitors and glad I made the right choice. I also came in way under budget. The sr fork is adequate for most trails in my area but that would of loved a slightly better suspension. For the price I Cant complain though.

        WOW... for this price point this is a great bike. Now mind you I am new to Mountain biking, but this bike is amazing. Trek hit it out of the park! Brakes are amazing, wheels, frame, shifters, gears, pretty much everything but seat is on point!
