Endurance/Gravel riding has become incredibly popular in recent years and continues to grow in popularity with mountain and road riders alike. Gravel bikes perform well on and off the road and can take riders anywhere they want to go. The adventure doesn’t have to end when the road turns to dirt. Many gravel riders want a bike that is robust and lightweight with disc brakes.
Marin created the Gestalt because they wanted you to go beyond the road. This endurance inspired bike allows you to take any path you want. Whether you love the asphalt or have an itch to sprint up a gravel road to a scenic view, the Gestalt will take you there. The lightweight 3-Series aluminum frame features clearance for 32c tires, a wide-range drivetrain, fender eyelets, and powerful disc brakes to make any terrain and weather manageable. With the Marin Gestalt, ride with the speed and confidence you need to take your adventure anywhere it wants to go.
The Gestalt 1 with a Carbon Fork is for the drop bar rider that doesn’t want to stick to pavement, and can’t help but get dirty no matter the route. Long distance commuters and all-weather riders will appreciate the fender and rack mounts and the sure stopping disc brakes, and the larger volume tires are right at home on that unexpected detour.
