Just announced, the new Marin Gestalt XR is described as “mountain biker’s drop-bar bike” and is equipped with a dropper post, 1×11 drivetrain, and clearance for 50mm tires. Check it out here…
The new Marin Gestalt XR is a premium, more off-road capable version of the Gestalt X10 released late last year. Both bikes feature the same mountain bike-inspired geometry, 10mm longer chainstays, and a slacker 67.5° head tube angle. They have clearance for tires up to 700 x 50mm or 27.5 x 2.1”, dropper post compatibility, and both models are designed around a short stem and wide bars.
The Gestalt XR takes off-road capability to a new level with a short travel TranzX dropper post, 1×11 Shimano GRX drivetrain with an integrated dropper lever, and a flared Marin handlebar. Both the Gestalt XR and X10 are built up around Marin’s Series 3 6061 aluminum frame, thru-axles, rack and fender mounts, internal cable routing, and three-pack mounts on the carbon fork.
