Frame and Suspension

The fastback seat stay design improves vertical compliance without forgoing the power transfer. The frame is integrated with a 100 mm SR Suntour XCT fork to absorb shocks on rough terrains. This fork is equipped with hydraulic lockout. The frame also features a rear rack mount to support your trail adventures.
Shimano Altus 3x8 speed drivetrain makes changing gears easy and smooth. As for brakes, the Bobcat Trail 3 is equipped with Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, which are very responsive in all weather conditions, including in mud and wet trails.
Good news for those who just kick the first ride to the mountain, cross-country or trail experience. The Bobcat Trail 3 features Schwalbe Tough Tom designed specifically for rougher trails. It is available in 27.5" and 29" depending on your height and riding style. The square taper bottom bracket with sealed cartridge bearing will prevent mud, dirt, and water from coming in. Modern trail design combined with the right components make Marin Bobcat Trail 3 a solid choice for riders who seek for an upgrade at a reasonable price.
