What should an enduro bike be? It should be capable. Marin's Attack Trail XT7 has a Suntour Auron up front with 160mm of trail-taming travel and a RockShox Monarch out back. It should be tough. The Attack's gracefully hydroformed 6061 aluminum frame sports a tapered headtube as well as front and rear Maxles for stiffness that you notice and appreciate right away. Above all, it should be versatile—able to climb as well as it descends. A 2 x 10-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain delivers plenty of gears and the Shimano hydraulic disc brakes are XC light, yet DH worthy. The same can be said for the light, tough 27.5-inch wheels with Schwalbe rubber. The Attack Trail XT7: what an enduro bike should be.
