Marin 2015 range launched

by 7

In 2014 Marin saw a bit of a renaissance, dropping the Ron Hill trackster and mapboard image in favour of something with a little bit more Gnar.

For 2015 we see a tweaked range building on the strengths of last years models.

The 150mm 650b carbon Attack Trail XM9 seems a pretty sorted package, with Pike, Monarch Debonair, Xo1 and a DT Swiss wheelset, as it should for it’s £4500 asking price.

The 140mm Mount Vision sees changes for 2015 which revolve around a revised damping platform, to refine the IsoTrac suspension system; which uses flex in the rear carbon triangle to allow movement. The rear chainstay protectors have also seen some refinement to allow better chain clearance. The XM9 again has a XO1 1×11 drivetrain matched to Fox 32 and Float Factory CTD Kashima fork and shock.

The Lombard is an “adventure bike”, ideal for commuting and coming in at £800 well within the Cycle to Work scheme.

Particularly neat are the reflective decals which work well with the matt finish.
