Marin Cortina AX2

Pedal Magazine - - Buyers Guide 2018 -

The Marin Cortina AX is built with the as­pir­ing cy­clocross or gravel racer in mind with a light­weight Se­ries 4 CX 6061-alu­minum-al­loy frame. Its Naild NavIt car­bon fork with ta­pered al­loy steerer fea­tures a fully-butted tube­set with a ta­pered head­tube, chain­stay disc-brake mount, rac­eready ge­om­e­try and Naild 12.3.9 lock­ing quick-re­lease thru-axles front and rear. The Cortina’s ge­om­e­try was de­signed for a dirt-first at­ti­tude, with a bot­tom-bracket height, wheel­base and steer­ing ge­om­e­try meant for larger-vol­ume 700c tires and off-road speed and sta­bil­ity. The AX2 is equipped with a SRAM Apex 11-speed driv­e­train, FSA Gos­samer Pro crankset and SRAM Apex hy­draulic disc brakes. The SRP is $2,799.
