A lot of things are happening at Marin Bikes: New website, new logo, new president – and some sweet new rides too! Let’s have a first look at the Marin Attack Trail C-TX Pro & Marin Mount Vision C-XM Pro.


Marin Attack Trail C-XT Pro 2014

The new Attack Trail signals Marin’s return to the longer-travel All-Mountain market, and 2014 marks the advancement to 27.5″ wheels, as well as a new, full-carbon frameset with a 66.5-degree headtube angle and interchangeable frame components, including a downtube bash guard and bottom-bracket/chain-guide attachment plates for single- and double-chainring cranksets. The Attack Trail utilizes Marin’s venerable Quad Link 3.0 suspension system for big mountain riding, offering 150mm of travel with 160mm forks up front. The Pro model will be offered with the new Rock Shox Pike RCT3 fork and a 2×10 SRAM XO drivetrain, with go-fast bits from e13, including TRS+ wheels, crankset, and chain guide. Riders will have the option of two all-carbon models, as well as an aluminum/carbon model.
