The updated Marin San Rafael is for riders looking to explore mixed surfaces and terrain, travel the local rail-trail system, and explore paved paths and dirt doubletrack equally at home.
Dual Sport bikes are a bridge between pavement and dirt, for the adventurous fitness and recreational rider.
Series 2 Aluminum Frame
Both the San Rafael and its women's equivalent, the San Anselmo, have a Series 2 6061 butted and hydroformed aluminium frame with disc brakes, rear rack and fender mounts, a 63mm travel suspension fork, and 700C wheels.
Powerful hydraulic disc brakes provide smooth, controlled stopping in all conditions with minimal maintenance.
