We searched high and low for a bike that can compare to the Airborne Marauder and looking at bikes that cost twice as much nothing compared. Search the market yourself, you won't find a better value.
Whether it’s rocking out at your favorite bike park, nailing that drop-in at your local freeride spot, going big deep in the woods, or even a little street or park action, the Marauder is a versatile bike that will fit your needs!
The Airborne Marauder was featured in the November 2010 issue of Bike Magazine. You can see the feature here:
This is a progressively designed bike that will fit your aggressive riding style. The 6” travel Marauder freeride frame takes its features and details from its big brother, the TAKA, and shares characteristics found on higher end DH bikes to give you confidence at speed and over the nastiest of terrain.
The frame on the Airborne Marauder uses the proven durability of the Zeppelin and Zeppelin Elite frames with a few minor modifications to allow for a bike better suited for the Freeride discipline. The head tube angle is a little more relaxed than its All Mountain counterpart. The Marauder wheelbase also smaller than that of the Taka positioning it nicely right between a Taka and a Zeppelins. Using a modified Zeppelin geometry allowed Airborne to save substantially on the weight of the bike and give you more options of where and how to ride compared to other "Freeride" bikes. This bike truly satisfies the term "Freeride."
Helping maintain control on those steep chutes and rough descents are some Tektro mechanical disc brakes featuring 203mm rotors, a feature tough to find on a freeride bike at this price-point. Big brakes don’t matter if the tires don't have the tread to hold the ground. Kenda provides a 2.6 front and 2.35 rear to bring the bike to a halt.
Drivetrains on freeride bikes are often overlooked. Not here! Not by Airborne! Featuring a 2x8 drivetrain to give you a low gear to climb to the top, with plenty of gear for hauling the descents and don't forget the clearance of having the bash guard. You'll be set for days at your local trails all the way to enjoying lift access days in the summer at the closed ski resorts.
Of course, the Marauder also boats a 1.125” headtube for strength and compatibility as well as replaceable hangers just in case you come up short on that next landing.
