During a Canadian downhill race, it was publicly broadcast that the Marin DH took two wins along the way and just faded in hibernation. The Marin DH has been undergoing a lot of changes and development as far as engineering designs are concerned. Coming out of the blue, Marin has recently introduced the Quad DH 2011 at the Crankworx mountain bike festival in Whistler, Canada.

Appearing like a supercharged Quake, the bike is designed to survive and win world cup downhill races. Three years in development, born out of the efficient Quad linkage set up found on all other Marin bikes, the Quad DH bears a whopping 250mm of travel.

Instead of the straight 1.5in tube, its frame is hydroformed with a tapered headtube. It also features a modular replacement dropout system allowing you to fit any type of axle system of your choice and varied sizes are available.

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….
