Cross country mountain bike riding and racing requires perhaps the fiercest blend of skill, strength, endurance and adaptability of any bicycle category. Marin’s Indian Fire Trail 7.8 is designed to fully express each and every one of those qualities. The 6061 aluminum frame features 142 x 12mm thru-axle dropouts and a tapered head tube to create an efficient, true-tracking platform while a Fox 32 Float Factory fork puts 100mm of highly-tunable suspension up front. The Shimano XT 1 x 11 drivetrain helps you make short work of climbs and the SLX brakes are an ace up your sleeve that lets you push your luck on the way down. The 27.5-inch Stan’s Rapid rims and Maxxis Ardent 2.25 tires are fast, tubeless-ready and dialed to excel.
