The Headlands takes what Marin has learned with the alloy Gestalt X line, and brings the spirit to an all-new, full carbon fiber frameset. Modern geometry, generous tire clearance, and sublime ride quality, all combine to make an incredibly capable, lightweight bike that’ll exceed your expectations.
WHEEL SIZE - 700c
SIZE RANGE: 49cm, 52cm, 54cm, 56cm, 58cm, 60cm
COLOR: Gloss Teal/Carbon/Magenta
Named after one of the most iconic sections of coastline and Insta-inspiring gravel riding 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 1x specific construction of the frame means short chainstays that still fit up to 700x45mm/650Bx47mm tires, and paired with the longer top tube and shorter stems the bike takes cues from modern mountain bikes on technical off-road trail, while still maintaining a comfortable, fast, and efficient ride on flatter terrain.
Internal housing routing and tons of mounts on the frame allow you to fit the bike with anything from water and tubes, to a full custom frame bag from your favorite maker using the attachments found around the front triangle, while conventional rack and fender mounts can transition the bike into a capable winter commuter.
“BEING SO LIGHT AND HAVING SUCH
DIRECT HANDLING OFF-ROAD – YET WITH
PLENTY OF STABILITY – IT’S NOT JUST
FUN, IT IS AN ABSOLUTE JOY TO RIDE AS
FAST AS YOU CAN.” -OFF-ROAD.CC
UNIDIRECTIONAL CARBON FIBER FRAME
The Headlands has a unidirectional carbon fiber frame designed to meet the demands of modern gravel and endurance riders and racers with large tire clearance, a 142x12mm thru-axle, and multiple frame eyelets for customized hydration and framebag needs.
The Headlands was designed with clearance for up to 700Cx45 or 650Bx50 tires to handle even the roughest “roads.”
INTERNAL DROPPER COMPATIBILITY
The Headlands features a seat tube port for internal dropper routing, with the Headlands 2 coming stock with a 105mm/85mm dropper post.
REMOVABLE SEAT STAY BRACE
The removable seat stay brace makes it super easy to add fenders for foul weather riding and commuting, while maintaining a clean smooth look when you don’t need the coverage.
