Marin DSX 2
Zippy aluminum frames, carbon forks, heaps of tire clearance, low standover, dropper post compatibility and a whole load of options for bags and fenders. Based around the Gestalt X drop-bar, we made the DSX to feel like an MTB but still cut it on all of those adventures that would normally demand curly bars.
The Marin DSX 2 is built around a Series 3 aluminum frame and a lightweight, carbon fork that’s packed with mounting points for bikepacking gear. There’s also a 12-speed 1X Shimano Deore drivetrain, WTB Riddler tires, Tektro hydraulic brakes and plenty of reliable Marin components.
Key upgrades over the DSX 1:
- Shimano Deore 6100 1x12 drivetrain
- Tektro R285 hydraulic disc brakes
