I don't like xc trail very much. Again, by combining two categories like that, you potentially cause confusion. Marathon isn't really an event anymore but I thought that was a category name that worked to describe XC bikes intended for long days or riders seeking slightly less racey spec or intentions (slightly heavier tires, slightly more upright geo). Though bikes like the Blur kind of made it obsolete - even in WC trim I found that bike to be perfect for pp gee rides that bled into trailbike territory.
