Marlin 5 Women's is a trail-worthy daily rider that's perfectly suited for everyday adventures, on and off the trail. A front suspension fork, a frame and parts designed specifically for women, 21 speeds and mounts for a rack and kickstand make it an ideal choice for new trail riders or anyone looking for a comfortable, stable commuter with the ruggedness of a real mountain bike.
It's right for you if...
You're new to the trail, and you're looking for great value on a real mountain bike that can double as a commuter. You also side with women who prefer the fit and feel of a bike made specifically for them.
The tech you get
A lightweight Alpha Silver Aluminium frame with a sloping top tube on smaller sizes for better standover height and more confidence on the trail, touchpoints – like the saddle, bars and grips – that provide a better fit for women from the start, 21 speeds, a wide range of gearing for big hills, hydraulic disc brakes that feel smoother than mechanical disc brakes and a suspension fork with 100 mm of travel.
The final word
A trail-tough mountain bike built specifically for women. It's built according to Trek's MTB heritage and is more than capable of taking on trail adventures. But it's also versatile. It's a popular ride on college campuses because the rack and kickstand mounts make it easy to accessorise and carry a load.

Our expert mechanic pulls your bike out of the box and builds it to 100%, excluding accessories (i.e racks and baskets). We tune the brakes and gears then test ride to ensure everything runs smoothly.
We then take off a few simple parts to fit the bike into the box. We double check to ensure all the parts are enclosed, before sealing the box and sending to you.
