Cyclocross/Gravel riding has become incredibly popular in recent years and continues to grow in popularity with mountain and road riders alike. Cyclocross 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. Thru-axles on the front and rear provides stiff and predictable steering and handling on and off the road.
Marin built the Cortina AX for the aspiring cyclocross or gravel racer. The lightweight 4-Series aluminum frame and carbon fork with thru-axles, along with tire clearance for 45c tires and front and rear disc brakes make the Cortina ready for any adventure. Marin says the Cortina’s geometry was designed with a dirt-first attitude, with a bottom bracket height, wheelbase, and steering geometry created for off-road speed and stability.
The Cortina AX2 is an incredible drop bar bike available at a great price. A Carbon fork provides a supple and smooth ride, the Apex SRAM 1x11 drivetrain provides all the gears you need to make it up the steepest climbs, and SRAM hydraulic disc brakes front and rear provide incredible stopping power when descending those steep chutes. The bike is rounded out with Marin Tubeless Ready wheels for less flats and incredible traction.
If you are looking for a bike that can handle any adventure no matter where it leads, the Marin Cortina AX1 needs to be your next bike. From fast pavement to loose gravel turns and everything in between, the Cortina was designed to handle it all. Don’t let your bike be the limiting factor in how far you can explore. Jump on a gravel bike today and destroy boundaries.
Bikerumor.com - "The butted Series 4 aluminum frame is matched with the NAILD Navit carbon fork with clearance for 45mm tires. Speced with a full SRAM Apex hydro 1x group, the Cortina would be a good choice for someone looking to split duties between short cross races and longer gravel adventures"
Peloton - "Marin has done a masterful job of threading the geometry needle, giving the bike enough lively personality for cross, while preserving its ability to remain stable and planted in thick gravel."
