All Bobcat Trail models feature hydraulic disc brakes and are available with wide-range off-road specific drivetrains.
Key upgrades over the Bobcat Trail 4:

- SR Suntour XCR LOR-DS suspension fork w/thru axle
- Shimano disc brakes
The Bobcat Trail has a Series 2 aluminum frame that features double butted 6061 tubing, internal cable routing, and forged 135mm open dropouts that ensure a stiff and light frame package.
The Bobcat Trail has a growing wheel size strategy for the best fit and performance with the choice of 27.5” or 29” platforms on the size M, 27.5” wheels on sizes XS and S, and 29” wheels on sizes L, XL, and XXL.
All Bobcat Trail models feature Marin Trail geometry, featuring a long-ish reach, low standover, slack head tube, and steep seat tube angles, giving riders confidence and predictable handling to have a blast on the trail.
This Large frame generally fits rider 5'8"-5"11", but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit.
