Calling it a soft launch, the big news over at Marin’s booth this year was the new San Quentin line. Shown as two different models with a third on the way, the San Quentin is sort of the combination between a dirt jumper and a trail bike. Something a rider would be able to rip their local trail system on, but still push the limits when it comes to the jump park.
To get there, the Boost 148mm aluminum frame uses “modern aggro hardtail geometry” with a 65° head tube angle, 75° seat tube angle, and 424mm chainstays. Tire clearance is said to be 27.5 x 2.6″ on wide 29-36mm internal width rims. Full spec may still change a bit, but this San Quentin 3 featured a Shimano 1×11 drivetrain with a RockShox Revelation RC 130mm travel Boost fork, and Shimano hydraulic brakes for $1899.
For a little more of a value, the San Quentin 1 uses an Open Boost (141mm QR) frame, and gets built with a Shimano 1×9 drivetrain, SR Suntour XCM32 120mm travel Boost fork, and Tektro hydraulic brakes for just $849.
Both bikes should be available later this summer, so keep your eyes out for the full specs from Marin soon.
