The DSX is the mountain biker’s gravel bike with familiar hand positioning, reliable 1x drivetrains, large tire clearance, and dropper post routing for better off road control, and on road descending stability.
The Marin DSX is everything you want from a modern, flat-bar gravel bike.
Zippy aluminum frames, compliant forks, heaps of tire clearance, low standover, dropper post compatibility and a whole load of options for bags and fenders. Taking inspiration from the Gestalt X drop bar line, we made the DSX to feel like an MTB but still cut it on all of those adventures that would normally demand curly bars.
Perfect for racking up road miles, daily grinds to work, multi-day epics and flowy singletrack, the DSX is the perfect modern gravel bike for riders that prefer their bars flat.
The DSX FS, 2, and 1 feature a butted and formed Series 3 6061 aluminum frame with internal routing, 142x12mm thru-axles, flat mount disc brakes, and rack and fender eyelets.
The DSX (base) model utilizes a Series 2 6061 aluminum frame with internal cable routing, and rack and fender eyelets.
The DSX comes stock with 700x45mm tires, with room for 700x50mm rubber.
The DSX features the latest flat mount disc brake standard for smooth, controlled stopping in all conditions with minimal maintenance.
DROPPER POST ROUTING
Dropper posts are quickly becoming standard fare for gravel racers and riders that spend significant time on rough surfaces, and the DSX features internal dropper post routing for easy upgrades.
