Campground trails? City streets? Gravel roads? The San Rafael is made for everything!
Getting out and exploring the countryside or a state park requires a machine for all kinds of conditions. The San Rafael's 700x40c knobby tires are perfect for exploring surfaces paved and unpaved. A custom butted and hydroformed aluminum frame keeps the San Rafael's weight low while keeping strength high. There are plenty of bottle and rack mounts, adding versatility to the bike for commuting and day-tripping. The overall fit of the San Rafael is more upright, giving the rider a better view of the road ahead. An adjustable SR Suntour NEX suspension fork with 63mm of travel soaks up impacts on rough surfaces. Shimano shifting is the industry standard, and you'll enjoy hassle-free gear changes with Shimano RapidFire Plus shifters and Shimano derailleurs. An alloy 46/30T crankset and 8-speed 11-34T cassette bring a huge gearing range to the party. Durable 32-spoke alloy wheels are wrapped with the aforementioned knobby tires, bringing a smooth feel and easy acceleration to the San Rafael. Tektro hydraulic disc brakes help keep speed reigned in, rain or shine.
Marin made sure you'd like the San Rafael from the start, so they added a comfy Fitness Plush saddle. An alloy handlebar, stem and seatpost finish off this versatile all-day runabout.
