Sea Otter Classic: Marin presented two new bike models for enduro / trail use with 650B wheels.
The new Marin Attack Trail aims to delight the enduro-racing community with a carbon frame and a perfectly redesigned quad-link. It offers 150mm travel at the rear while a 160mm RockShox Pike is working on the front.
The steering angle is said to be 66.5°, the chainstays at acceptable 435mm.
According to the manufacturer, the weight is said to be 12.4kg. Available from autumn 2013.
More moderate and lighter than the Attack Trail is the Mountain Vision 2014. Only 140mm at front and rear, a weight of 11,3 kg and a sttering angle of 67,5° are the key features of the carbon bike.
The rear triangle appears at first glance similar, but in fact it is fundamentally different: The IsoTrack-rear is a linkage driven single pivot!
Both bikes will be available in four different sizes.
