When Marin first released images and specs of the new Hawk Hill, with its hydroformed aluminum tubing, air-sprung suspension, internal cable routing, and up-to-date build kit, the market was extremely interested to see the price.

The 2017 Marin Bikes Hawk Hill is a mid-range full-suspension trail bike at an entry-level price. Kit is amazing for this price point: Shimano's Deore shifting and hydraulic disc brakes, RockShox and X-Fusion suspension, and Marin's own alloy cockpit. The aluminum frame and swingarm are very clean, laid out with inherently stable geometry, delivering a solid, smooth ride, the fast-rolling Schwalbe treads providing excellent traction and accelerating like gangbusters.
A very good full-suspension trail bike.
