Bike Scoop: Marin Hawk Hill 27.5 Mountain Bike

The Marin Hawk Hill 27.5 Mountain Bike – 2017 is ready to take your trail riding to a whole new level, and ready to redefine your expectations of what a value-oriented mountain bike can be. It starts with a Series 3 6061 aluminum full suspension frame, built around the incredibly versatile, and fun-to-ride, 27.5″ wheel platform. An X-Fusion 120mm suspension rear shock hooks in to the MultiTrac suspension platform to give the bike more squish without impacting chainline or handling. Up front a RockShox Recon Silver RL fork with 120mm of travel and 15mm thru axle give you the confidence to be less picky with choosing your line. A Shimano Deore 1×10 drivetrain gives you plenty of range with an 11-42T cassette in the back and a 32T chainring up front. Stopping is taken care of by a set of Shimano’s BR-M315 hydraulic disc brakes, which serve up all weather and all terrain braking power. Finally the bike rolls on a set of Marin Double Wall alloy 27.5″ rims wrapped up in Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35″ tires to maximum traction in any conditions.

All in all, the Marin Hawk Hill is a whole lot of mountain bike at a really amazing value. It’s a really solid bike out of the box, but it’s also a great platform to build upon as you look to upgrade. Trail geometry means this bike has a low bottom bracket, slack head angle and longer reach so you can really push what this bike can do on the trail. Convertible rear drop outs can be switched between traditional quick release and 12mm thru axle, so the bike is ready for a wheel upgrade when you are. And if you want to add a dropper post to the equation, the Marin Hawk Hill is set up for internal cable routing. It’s a real trail slayer as is, but you are not going to outgrow it if you want to upgrade later on.
