Reviews

  • "The AX2 packs a lot into a package that’s only $2099."

  • "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."

  • “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.” 

  • "If you haven't ridden a new bike in this price segment in a while, it'll likely surprise you if not for the value, but how well it handles."
