ALL TRAILS, ALL CONDITIONS
Named in honor of our favourite post-ride taqueria, the Marin El Roy is our take on the perfect winch-up, shred-down hardcore hardtail. We’ve combined the soul of steel with super-modern, gravity-focused geometry and paired it up with big-trucking 29” wheels and a build-kit that’ll take on the roughest and toughest of trails.
The Marin El Roy Frame Kit allows riders to upgrade to ‘Roy, using their existing bike’s components. The El Roy is a Series 3 double-butted and formed CrMo frame with super-modern geometry that adds up to bags of fun on the mountain. It’s supplied with a seat clamp, FSA Orbit headset and bolt-on thru-axle to keep the setup simple and save you some dollars for burritos and brews.
El Roy is available in two sizes - ‘Regular’ and ‘Grande’.
Series 3 Double Butted and Formed CrMo tubing, Integrated Drop-In Headset, External Rear Derailleur and Brake Housing, Internal Dropper Post Routing, 148x12mm Boost Rear Spacing, PM Brake Mounts
FSA Orbit 40 No.42 ACB
Seat Clamp 33.3mm OD

All lengths in millimeters
Gravity-oriented geometry, with a 63° headtube and 78° seattube angles, 44mm fork offset, and long reach measurements (Regular = 480mm, Grande = 510mm).
Regular and Grande frame sizes fit a wide range of riders, with included 150mm (Regular) or 170mm (Grande) dropper posts.
INVESTMENT CAST DROPOUTS
Custom investment cast CrMo 148x12mm Boost thru-axle drop outs provide strength and stiffness where you need it most.
TOPTUBE STORAGE MOUNTS
Bosses on the underside of the top tube give the rider the option to mount tools and other accessories in a tidy and secure fashion.
The Marin El Roy is just about as dialed as a hardtail can be for descending fast, or descending steep, or both. The flip side is the El Roy doesn’t climb as well as less aggressive hardtails. Aside from the wheels the build kit is spot on for its intended use, and offers a ton of value at this price point. I give the El Roy style points as well for its steel frame construction and glossy blue and red paint job.
