The Marley features our Ragley's new Trail Geometry and is the alloy version based on our the new Ragley Piglet. The Marley features a custom hydro-formed triple butted 7005 T6 series aluminium frame. Building on the success of their earlier Piglet Ragley have retained innovative features such as the 3 Finger Bridge and our Taperlite seat tube. The inclusion of ISCG 05 tabs hint at this bikes true intentions for getting lairy on the trails and hammering the descents!
The Marley uses the 44mm headset standard which permits the use of headsets from Cane Creek, Nukeproof and others to accommodate all steerer tube configurations. With the right headset, this frame can take a 1.125in, tapered or 1.5in fork. We recommend Nukeproof headset models - 44IESS and 44IISS (standard), 44IETS (tapered) or 44EEOS (1.5in steerer).
Ragley New Trail Geometry:
Their revised geometry retains a slack headangle of 67deg to provide impeccable trail manners when coupled with a mid to long travel fork. They have dropped the bottom bracket height to lower your centre of gravity and inspire confidence through the rough stuff with improved handling and stability.
Custom hydro-formed 7005 series aluminium
"Three Finger" chainstay bridge is exclusive to Ragley, and allows massive tyre clearance so you can fit 2.5in rubber with massive chainring and tyre clearance. Happy with 36t middle rings and gives resilience to any attempted chainsuck/derailment. Bridgeless design gives better mud clearance.
