A new range of hardtails were released by Marin, specially targeted for the UK. The hardtails were made to give powerful performance at a reasonable price.

The new range was the Black and White Line which sports a hydroformed aluminium frame. The frame is almost identical with the Hydro-Lite series. The only difference would be that the Black and White Line gives you great value for your money.

Marin’s eye for detail resulted in a triple butted frame which all models share. The Black and White Line are polished with Shimano Deore groupsets. The forks are Rock Shox Tora SL. If you want to try the Pro version, you will shell out a bit more than the entry level model which costs £899. The Pro version offers a Rock Shox SID/Hope/Mavic/XT or Fox 32 F100 RL/Mavic Cross Ride/XT/XTR specifications.

Marin has six models that you can choose from in the line….
