The Alpine Trail E will take you further, faster, allowing you to tackle the most aggressive trails either up or down.
Series 4 Aluminum Frame Alpine Trail E models are built upon our Series 4 aluminum frames, with detailed forgings, highly manipulated tubes, and full internal cable routing, giving the rider the highest-end alloy frame that Marin offers, compatible with modern coil or air shocks.
MultiTrac Suspension The Alpine Trail E features the same great, proven MultiTrac suspension technology, but optimized for the Shimano STEPS system. With this combination, there is no need for platform or lockout levers, just get on and blast up the hills.
Mixed Wheel Sizes 29" front and 27.5"+ rear wheel sizes are the ideal combination for the Alpine Trail E—the larger front wheel easily rolls over most any trail obstacle and offers the best cornering traction, while the burly 27.5 x 2.8" rear setup adds playfulness and enhances acceleration and braking traction.
Dropper Post Optimized The modern-day trail rider needs their saddle out of the way at times, while low-slung frames require longer length posts. On the Alpine Trail E, seat tube lengths have been minimized, so riders of all sizes can get the proper extension needed.
