The San Quentin 2 is for the aggressive hardtail mountain bike rider, looking for a blend between singletrack and extended air time.
Developed in conjunction with freeride legend Matt Jones and taking its name from the roughest and tumble piece of Marin County. The San Quentin collection lives up to 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 best all-mountain hardtails, the San Quentin family of aggressive trail hardtails is the perfect mash-up for the modern trail rider.
Taking cues from the Alcatraz, the San Quentin 2 lineup provides all the benefits of the DJ style with massive stand-over, slick frame tubes, and a sexy paint job.
The slack head tube angle paired with a steep seat tube angle creates a hardtail ride that will fly uphill with perfect front wheel precision but then descends like it’s on rails. The balanced rider position, thanks to the steep seat tube puts your weight between the wheels for impressive climbing and handling on flats.
While the slack front end and short hardtail rear center help to pull you through the rough descents and corners with an intuitive feel.
The San Quentin 1 features a Series 2 aluminium frame, with tapered head tubes, 3D forged dropouts, IS brake mounts, and semi-internal cable routing. The San Quentin 2 and 3 feature Series 3 aluminium frames, with more advanced tube forming, more complex dropouts, post mount disc tabs, full internal cable routing, and a boost 148mm thru-axle.
