Bike maker rolls out plus-sized hardtail, 150mm trail bike, and budget-friendly option
Between the Pine Mountain 1 steel hardtail plus bike, the Attack Trail 7 trail bike, and the budget-friendly full suspension Hawk Hill, Marin Bikes is bringing a range of exciting new products to the table for a wide range of riders.
Marin mountain bike product manager Matt Cipes introduces three exciting new offerings from the California company’s 2017 product line.
The 2017 Pine Mountain 1 is a simple 27.5 plus steel hardtail for those who just want to get out in the woods and play. The bike features a Shimano SLX 1×11 drivetrain and Marin forged 2-piece crank with 76mm BCD, giving riders the option to easily swap out the chainring depending on intended usage. It also has small diameter seat stays for enhanced ride compliance and ample tire clearance on the 40mm wide rims. Integrated rack mounts make this bike a great option for touring as well. Priced at $1299, this bike is a great deal for anyone looking for a steed that combines durability, utility, and modern features.
Meanwhile, the Attack Trail 7 boasts new geometry across its alloy platforms similar to the bikes Marin riders are using on the Enduro World Series circuit. Featuring increased reach (412m-440mm, size medium), half a degree slacker head tube angle, and shorter chainstays (435mm), this 150mm travel trail bike is ready to shred straight out of the box at just $2649.
Finally, the Hawk Hill takes some of the same great features of the Attack Trail 7 into a more affordable package ($1299) that will appeal to entry level and more budget-conscious riders.
