Marin Bikes are Made For Fun. Since the first mountain bikes bearing the Marin Bikes name debuted in 1986, the brand has been dedicated to enriching the lives of our riders by making fun, high caliber bicycles, which provide years of riding enjoyment. We operate a business based on hard work, fueled by passion, and fulfilled by the satisfaction of bringing the joy of cycling to riders across the world.
Whether your idea of fun involves riding rugged trails to that remote alpine lake, pinning on a race number and entering your first race, taking the long way home on your commuter bike, bikepacking to that remote campsite, or just exploring the neighborhood bike paths, Marin brings the fun to your ride. It’s the principle that guides us when developing new bikes, from long-travel, trail-devouring machines that are at home in some of the world’s most challenging race circuits to the multi-surface capable pavement collection. Each model is designed to be playful and to maximize the opportunities for two-wheeled fun.

The Hawk Hill, Marin’s best-selling mountain bike range, received key specification and graphic updates on the Hawk Hill 2 and Hawk Hill 3 models. The Hawk Hill 2 is now equipped with SRAM’s SX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, and the Hawk Hill 3 is spec’d with Shimano’s new SLX 12-speed drivetrain, a Marzocchi Bomber Z2 fork, and Shimano four piston brakes. The Hawk Hill 1, which Bicycling Magazine dubbed “the best mountain bike,” remains unchanged, and all Hawk Hill models retain the best-in-class geometry, as updated for 2019. UK RRPs span from £1395 - £2295 across the three models.
Entering its third year using the MultiTrac suspension platform, Rift Zone models receive a significant frame upgrade, with rear wheel travel bumped up to 125mm, and fork travel now at 130mm. Head tube angles have slackened to 65.5° while seat tube angles steepened to 76°. These updates better match the short fork offset trends that have become increasingly popular on trail bikes. Specifications virtually mirror the Hawk Hill lineup, with SRAM’s new SX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain on the Rift Zone 2, and a new Shimano SLX 12-speed drivetrain and four piston brakes, and Marzocchi Bomber Z2 fork gracing the Rift Zone 3. UK RRPs span from £1395 - £2295 across the three models.
Mid-price hardtails have historically been one of Marin’s fortes, and the all-new Bobcat Trail and Wildcat Trail mountain bikes reflect the attention to detail that Marin is known for. These models are designed for the hardtail enthusiast and recreational mountain bike rider looking for proper singletrack capabilities, with the Wildcat Trail models designed specifically for women riders. Modern trail geometry is present in the all-new Series 2 frames, which are now longer/lower/slacker, and utilize 120mm travel suspension forks, giving riders confidence and predictable handling to have a blast on the trail. Seat tube diameters have been increased to 30.9mm, for enhanced dropper post compatibility, and cables and hoses now run internally. Both the Bobcat Trail as well as Wildcat Trail lineups span three models, with prices ranging from £495 to £795.
Designed for the recreational mountain biker looking to explore the local singletrack or dirt paths, the Bolinas series receive new Series 1 frames for 2020, following MTB trends of longer/lower/slacker. Headtube angles are now one degree slacker, while seattube angles are one degree steeper. Longer toptubes, coupled with shorter stems give the recreational rider a true MTB experience, and standover clearance is increased, for a modern silhouette. Finally, both Bolinas models were upgraded to disc brakes for 2019, a feature that continues. Two models available, priced at £395 and £425.
The classic steel hardtail, reimagined. The 2020 Pine Mountain remains the ideal bikepacking and adventure machine, moving to a new platform and 29 x 2.6” tires, on new Series 2 and Series 3 frames. These CroMo frames feature updated geometry, with a 66.5° head tube angle and 430mm chainstays – a great mix between agility for trail riding, as well as all-day comfort when bikepacking. A plethora of frame mounts throughout the front triangle and our new 50mm rise Bedroll Bar give the bike unprecedented versatility for carrying virtually any load. Two models available, priced at £1195 and £1895.
The all-new Pine Mountain E series is for mountain bikers and bikepackers who need a boost, either to cover more distance in a shorter amount of time, or to go farther and higher than otherwise possible. Taking cues from our new Pine Mountain models, but built on a highly capable 27.5+ wheelset and including a multitude of mounts and our all-new Bedroll Bar to shoulder the load. Both models use Series 3 CroMo framesets and Shimano STEPS drive systems. Two models available, priced at £2995 and £3695.
The Headlands takes what we have learned with the alloy Gestalt X line, and brings the spirit into an all-new, full carbon fiber frameset. Modern geometry, clearance for 50mm wide tires, and sublime ride quality, all combine to make an incredibly capable, lightweight bike that’ll exceed your expectations. Available as two complete builds, with the Headlands 2 based around Shimano’s new GRX-800 1x11 drivetrain and a dropper post, while the Headlands 1 uses a SRAM Apex 11 speed setup. Prices are £2195 and £2595, and a limited edition frameset, painted in a Pacific Ocean Blue/Golden Gate Bridge red fade, will retail for £1600.
Tough, fast rigs for urban riding, the Lombard can take you to work, day in and day out, and take abuse without blinking Built-in reflectivity keeps you visible from all directions, and thanks to durable components and higher-volume tires, you can treat the city like a playground. Both models use Beyond Road Series 3 aluminum frames, with the Lombard 2 running a Shimano Tiagra 2x10 speed drivetrain and a carbon fiber fork, while the Lombard 1 uses a Shimano Sora 2x9 speed drivetrain and an aluminum alloy fork. Priced at £1345 and £795 respectively.
Live the supple life, with the latest addition to the Nicasio lineup. Using the same Series 1 butted 4130 CrMo Beyond Road frame as the standard Nicasio, we’ve created a baby brother to the Nicasio Ridge, speccing a Road Plus wheelset with 47mm wide WTB tires and a MicroShift Advent wide-range1x9 speed drivetrain. RRP £795.
The Muirwoods RC is the ultimate mountain bike based commuter, with a series 2 CrMo frame featuring new slider dropouts for chain tensioning, an internally geared 8-speed Shimano Nexus hub, and 650B x 47mm “Road Plus” tires that accelerate quickly and roll almost as fast as skinnier road tires, while eating up potholes and curbs. RRP £845.
