The new Marin San Quentin is for the aggressive hardtail trail rider looking for a blend between singletrack capabilities and extended air time.
Series 2 or 3 Aluminum Frame
The San Quentin 1 features a Series 2 aluminium frame, with tapered head tubes, 3D forged dropouts, IS brake mounts, and semi-internal cable routing. Whereas this San Quentin 2 features a Series 3 aluminium frame, with more advanced tube forming, more complex dropouts, post mount disc tabs, full internal cable routing, and a boost 148mm thru-axle
Dirt Jump Inspired Frame Style
Taking cues from the Alcatraz, the San Quentin line up provides all the benefits of the DJ style with massive standover, slick frame tubes, and a sexy paint job.
Modern Trail Geometry
The slack head tube angle paired with a steep seat tube angle creates a ride that will fly uphill with perfect front wheel precision but then descends like it’s on rails. The balanced rider position thanks to the steep seat tube puts your weight between the wheels for impressive climbing and handling on flats, while the slack front end and short rear centre help to pull you through the rough descents and corners with an intuitive feel.
The San Quentin 2 features ISCG 05 tabs for easy chain retention device installation for rowdier riders.
