Marin Headlands

Carbon all-road bike, built for exploring the rougher stuff

The Headlands takes everything that Marin have learnt about drop bar adventure and gravel bikes and distils it into a new, full carbon fibre frameset.  Offering a modern geometry that is aimed at the more challenging of terrains, generous tire clearance, and a sublime ride quality, the Headlands is an incredibly capable, fast and lightweight bike that’ll exceed your expectations of what an adventurous bike can deliver.

Named after one of the most iconic sections of coastline and Instagram-inspiring gravel riding areas of the American West, the Marin Headlands embodies everything about this beautiful and rugged terrain. A full unidirectional carbon chassis is purpose- built for multi-surface adventures, be they short days or long weeks in the saddle.

The Headlands frameset is 1x specific, which overcomes some of the frame geometry limitations imposed by front mechs, and means that short chainstays can be used for a responsive and fast ride thanks to a stiffer, more direct rear end, but which still fit up to 700x45mm/650Bx47mm tyres – paired with a lengthy top tube, shorter stem and more upright (cross country style) front end the bike takes cues from modern mountain bikes on technical off-road trail, while still maintaining a comfortable, fast, and efficient ride on flatter or tamer terrain.

Internal housing routing and tons of mounts on the frame (there are 15 in the main triangle alone) allow you to fit the bike with anything from water and tubes, to a full custom frame bag from your favourite maker, while conventional rack and mudguard mounts can transition the bike into a capable winter commuter or longer distance all-road fast touring bike.

The Headlands has a unidirectional carbon fibre frame designed to meet the demands of modern gravel and endurance riders and racers, combining speed with comfort and stability over rougher ground.  The Headlands features a seat-tube port for internal dropper routing, with the Headlands 2 coming pre-fitted with a 105mm/85mm dropper post.  The neat removable seat stay bridge makes it super easy to add proper mudguards for foul weather riding and commuting, while maintaining a clean smooth look when you don’t need that coverage.

As engaging on road as on dirt, the Headlands is a masterstroke — Offroad.CC   See the full review

We love the Marin Headlands because it takes a slightly different direction from many carbon all-roa/gravel bikes, in taking aim squarely at the gnarlier end of gravel riding – it’s the kind of drop bar bike that appeals to those looking to ride briskly over decent distances, but where the terrain is truly mixed, taking them anywhere from paved surfaces right through to the kind of territory often seen as the domain of cross country bikes (it’s little wonder that mountain bikers love it!).

…it’s a bike I truly enjoyed for exploring and seeing the sights without Strava running in the background — Cycling Tips   See the full review

Built for bombing over rough trails and racing the gravel sections, the Headlands 2 is a carbon fibre gravel bike with a fast-feeling, vibration-damping frame and a built-in dropper post — Bicycling.com   See the full review
