Mountain Bike Action First Ride: Marin Alpine Trail Carbon
Marin Alpine Trail Carbon
Marin has always strived to develop bicycles that are Made For Fun. The type of mountain machine that’ll take on rugged trails in remote locations to slapping on a number plate to take a podium at your first race. Each model designed is to be playful and to maximize the opportunities for two-wheeled fun. With that in mind, Marin launched the Alpine Trail Carbon.
This new carbon version is based on the popular alloy Alpine Trail range. Marin replicated the progressive geometry by sticking with a slack 63.5º head tube angle paired with a steep 78º seat tubes. Marin Claims that this is the strongest and stiffest Alpine Trail to date. This should improve cornering, jumping, and the all-around enduro riding experience, so take a look.
Mountain Bike Action is a monthly magazine devoted to all things mountain biking (yes, that’s 12 times a year because we never take a month off of mountain biking). It has been around since 1986 and we’re still having fun.
