The Marin Bobcat Trail is a capable mountain bike with modern trail geometry, built for exploring singletrack and your local trail centre. When developing the new Bobcat Trail, Marin sought out to build a bike that is durable, serviceable and that allows the rider to progress as they gain more confidence. This was achieved through lengthening the reach of the bike and slackening the head angle to improve stability, while a steeper seat angle makes the climbing position more comfortable and efficient.
The heart and soul of the Bobcat Trail stems from the lightweight Series 2 aluminium alloy frame, which is built around 27.5″ or 29″ wheels (depending on the size). The spec is all trail-ready too, which is why all models come with 120mm of rock garden-ready travel, internal housing routing, and hydraulic disc brakes.
The Marin Bobcat Trail a solid choice for the recreational rider looking to step up to modern geo and step deeper into mountain biking, and for the experienced rider in search of an update that doesn’t break the bank.
Note: Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.
SERIES 2 ALUMINUM FRAME
The Bobcat Trail has a Series 2 6061 butted and hydroformed aluminum frame with a 120mm travel suspension fork and 27.5″ or 29″ wheels depending on size and preference.
The Bobcat Trail has a growing wheel size strategy for the best fit and performance with the choice of 27.5″ or 29″ platforms on the size M, 27.5″ wheels on sizes XS and S, and 29″ wheels on sizes L, XL.
