Marin is pleased to announce a collaboration with the NorCal High School Cycling League with the new Team Marin model, oriented towards up-and-coming racers. To launch the partnership, Marin will donate ten bikes to the League. Additionally, Marin will donate one bike to the League for every four that are sold at retail, with a goal of providing 50 bikes this season. All donated bikes will be used by the League to help give underprivileged student-athletes a start with the program.
The Team Marin 29er hardtail is built to offer the most performance-to-value for up-and-coming cross-country racers. Built around a Series 3 aluminum frame, RockShox suspension and wide-range 11-speed SRAM drivetrain, the Team Marin is built with Marin’s long racing heritage to make sure aspiring athletes have what they need to experience the joys of cross country racing.
“We are thrilled to partner with Marin Bikes for the 2019 NorCal High School Cycling League season,” said Vanessa Hauswald, Executive Director of the NorCal League. “In addition to financial support that will benefit the continued growth and development of the League, the bikes that Marin is donating to us will go directly to our deserving, underprivileged student-athletes. We have already selected three students, who recently lost everything in the Camp Fire, to receive the first three bikes. We look forward to this partnership with Marin, and to the ways it will support our mission of growing the sport of high school cycling.”
“This program helps get more kids on bikes, especially deserving ones,” says Chris Holmes, Brand Director at Marin. “We love what Vanessa and the NorCal League have built in our backyard, and are very happy to help give back to the local mountain biking scene, especially high school racing.”
The Team Marin will be available at Marin retailers starting in December 2018, with an MSRP of $1299.
