Marin has started a collaboration with the NorCal High School Cycling League for 2019 with the new Team Marin hardtail. The Team Marin is oriented towards up-and-coming XC racers, and to launch the partnership Marin has donated ten bikes the league. For every four bikes that Marin sells at retail, they will donate an additional bike to the league with an overall goal of providing fifty bikes this season. All donated bikes will be used by the league to help give underprivileged student-athletes a start with the program.
"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."
Built around an aluminum frame, RockShox suspension and 11-speed SRAM drivetrain, the Team Marin is meant to offer the most performance-to-value for up-and-coming cross-country racers.
