Marin San Quentin

Aggressive Big-Hitting All-Mountain Hardtail

Developed in conjunction with freeride legend Matt Jones and taking its name from the most rough and tumble piece of Marin County, the San Quentin collection lives up to the notoriety of its namesake maximum security California State Prison. Blending the strength and style of Marin’s renowned Alcatraz dirt jump frame with the natural trail performance of the best hardtails, the San Quentin family of aggressive trail hardtails is the perfect mash-up for the modern trail rider – and tailor made for having blasting round the very biggest of UK trail centres (just take a look at the YouTube videos below!).

The San Quentin features a modern trail geometry – the slack head tube angle paired with a steep seat tube angle create a ride that will fly uphill with perfect front wheel precision but then descend 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 latest versions of the San Quentin 2 and 3 feature Marin’s top level ‘Series 3’ aluminum frames, with more advanced tube forming, more complex dropouts, post mount disc tabs, full internal cable routing, and a boost 148mm thru-axle.  Both the San Quentin 2 and 3 models feature ISCG 05 tabs for easy chain retention device installation for rowdier riders.

All-in-all, the San Quentin is for the aggressive trail rider looking for a blend between singletrack capabilities and extended air time, with the simplicity, rideability and reliability of a super tough hardtail rig.
