Born in Marin County, California in 1986, Marin Bikes has a long and rich history in the mountain bike world. Over the years they've produced many rides as iconic as the trails in their backyard. In recent years, however, they've fallen off the radar of many riders. That's all set to change, though, with the introduction of several new bikes and a rebranding. In this slideshow, we chat with Product Manager Jason Faircloth while we take a closer look at the new Mount Vision and Attack Trail models, both of which grabbed our attention and are helping to put them back on track.
With 140mm of travel, the Mount Vision line features 27.5-inch wheels and a do-it-all attitude. Notable features include a full carbon frame, lightweight build, simplified IsoTrac suspension system, flex stays, internal routing, and Enduro linkage bearings with a lifetime warranty.
For those looking for a little more cushion, the new Attack Trail is ready to get aggressive with its 150-160mm travel, relatively slack geometry, short chainstays, smart component selections, and 27.5-inch wheels.
