San Quentin & Four Corners Elite Debuts

by Chris Holmes

We’re debuting two new models at the 2018 Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, CA, the all-new San Quentin aggro hardtail collection and the 2019 Four Corners Elite.

SAN QUENTIN
Developed in conjunction with freeride legend Matt Jones and taking its name from the most rough and tumble piece of Marin County, the all-new San Quentin collection lives up to the notoriety of the namesake maximum security California State Prison. Blending the strength and style of our Alcatraz dirt jump frame with the natural trail savvy of the Nail Trail hardtail, the San Quentin family of aggressive trail hardtails is the perfect mash-up for the modern trail rider. Three models will be available, summer 2018, with MSRPs ranging from $849 - $1849.

FOUR CORNERS ELITE
The premium-level “Utilitour” model marks its return as an early 2019 release. As before, the Four Corners Elite builds upon the foundation of set by the base Four Corners model, designed to handle fully-loaded touring, with up to four bottle mounts, rack and fender eyelets, lowrider fork mounts, tire clearance up to 2.1” and disc brakes to bring it all to a stop. Four Corners geometry is based on biometric fit data, with five frame sizes to properly fit riders between 4’ 11” – 6’ 4”, with size proportionate 650B or 700C wheels. Bars are set high for all-day comfort and heads-up visibility in traffic, with mountain steering geometry capable of taking you down whatever path your destination requires. The Four Corners Elite is built upon a Series 3 double butted and formed CrMo frame with 142 x 12mm thru-axle dropouts with a butted CrMo, 15mm thru-axle fork, along with a wide-range SRAM/FSA/e*Thirteen drivetrain and SRAM’s Apex hydraulic disc brakes. WTB’s KOM i25 tubeless compatible rims are wrapped in WTB Resolute 42mm wide tires. Available summer 2019, $2499 MSRP.
