Is it a dirt jump bike? Is it a slacked out trail hardtail? It blurs the lines of both, according to Marin. With a 65-degree head angle, 130mm of front travel, and burly tires we'd expect this one is best on the trail. Regardless, the San Quentin is a durable hardtail that's spec'd to take a beating and leave the doors open for riders. Marin's MTB Product Manager, Matt Cipes, gives us the rundown:
"Developed in conjunction with freeride legend Matt Jones and taking its name from the most rough and tumble piece of Marin County, the all-new San Quentin collection lives up to the notoriety of the namesake maximum security California State Prison. Blending the strength and style of our Alcatraz dirt jump frame with the natural trail savvy of the Nail Trail hardtail, the San Quentin family of aggressive trail hardtails is the perfect mash-up for the modern trail rider. Three models will be available, summer 2018, with MSRPs ranging from $849 - $1849."
