Marin Hawk Hill – Affordable Dual Suspension Fun

The Marin Hawk Hill comes with 120mm of travel in both the front RockShox Recon Silver RL fork and the X-Fusion O2 Pro R air shock in the rear. This fork and rear shock pairing brings unprecedented value to this price point. The bike comes with wide 27mm internal width rims – built asymmetrical for added strength – but Marin made sure that when they were designing the frame it would be adaptable for upgrades down the line. Things like built in fittings for internal dropper post routing and 9-12mm rear thru-axle dropouts allow for wheel and component upgrades over the lifetime of the bike. Marin wanted the Hawk Hill to not only provide great value fresh off the sales floor, but also have the flexibility for riders to bring it to the next level as they progress on the trails.
