  • "We should all be rejoicing as the industry is in desperate need of affordable, yet relevant, bikes like the Marin Hawk Hill. I've no doubt we'll see a slew of new Marin dealers pop-up across the globe dispensing the Hawk Hill line of bikes and many riders on the trails enjoying them." 

  • “This is by far, without exception, the best riding, fully capable $1,500 full-suspension bike that you can buy right now.” “This is the ideal bike for someone who wants a capable entry-level bike and doesn’t want a hardtail or plus bike.”

  • "The Hawk Hill's suspension pedals well in the saddle or standing, has good mid-stroke support from the leverage curve and ramps towards the end which, combined with the air shock's natural progression, makes for one of the nicest riding 120mm suspension platforms I've been on. It's playful yet poised."

  • "We have tested many full suspension bikes in this price category that were disappointing, but the Hawk Hill stands out from the crowd with a dialed frame and a suspension platform built with a parts kit that doesn't need any immediate upgrades to be totally trail-ready, even for the serious rider. The bones of the Hawk Hill are strong and offer a solid base for riders to make strategic upgrades down the road - or enjoy the bike as it is. Either way, the Hawk Hill is a trailbike that will more than satisfy the needs of a huge cross section of riders, whether it's bone stock or upgraded to fit the specific needs of the pickier rider."

  • "A prime example of Marin's commitment to that mountain-bike core who love the sport, but don't want a 10-year mortgage on a bike to get into it."

  • "For many riders, the big selling point for the Hawk Hill will be price. At $1500, it’s not cheap, but it’s a veritable bargain in a sport where high-end rigs can top 10 large. But don’t let the price fool you. This trail bike isn’t just for beginners. With contemporary geometry, well thought out spec, and appealing aesthetics, even advanced riders can enjoy it."

  • “One of the best bang-for-the-buck bikes we've ever seen"

  • "The bike was a bit of a surprise to the Mountain Bike Action team. Sporting a very modest $1500 price tag, the Hawk Hill delivered a seriously quality ride with plenty of versitality for future upgrades. It was refreshing to see a company come out with a good machine at a realistic price."

  • "With trail bikes this thoroughly developed at just above the grand mark price-wise it goes to show that you don’t have to lay down silly money to have fun on the trails. If you’re new to the sport, or just want an affordable trail bike to sit alongside your DH machine, the Hawk Hill could well be the future-proof and easily upgradeable trail bike to put at the top of your list."

  • "What a great bike! The Hawk Hill has endeared itself to me as a bike with a strong, no-frills personality, not overly produced with carbon and media hype. Just a bike to get people out riding, and riding hard too, not just a dumbed down trail bike for beginners who know nothing better. The trickle down is in full flow, and one by drivetrains, air suspension, decent geometry and proper cockpits should not just be the preserve of the mountain bike elite."

  • "If you want a full-suspension bike and aren’t ready to jump for something in the $2,500 range, Marin’s 120-millimeter-travel, 27.5-wheeled Hawk Hill is probably the way to go."

  • "The full-suspension Hawk Hill does a great job of keeping the price down while not sacrificing all the positive things needed for a real mountain bike."
