The Marin Headlands is a high-tech, high-spec carbon fiber gravel and adventure bike that’s made to be lightning-fast, confidence-inspiring and super comfortable on all surfaces.

We’ve taken our own unidirectional carbon fiber frame, added mountain bike-inspired geometry, loads of tire clearance and a whole heap of mounting points for gear and fenders to create a super versatile, super capable all-terrain dart of a bike. Go 700c with room for up to 45mm tires or 650b up to 47mm.

The Main Headlands 2 is our no-compromise, top-spec, top-performance gravel and adventure bike.

Gravel-specific Shimano GRX 800 groupset, GRX hydraulic brakes, Vee Tire Co tires and Marin wheels and finishing kit all add up to a whole mountain of fun and adventure. Last but not least, we’ve added a TranzX dropper seat post to really push you and your Headlands’ limits on the trails

Marin Headlands 2 carbon fiber fork and frame detail.


The Headlands was designed with clearance for up to 700Cx45 or 650Bx50 tires to handle even the roughest “roads.”

Marin Headlands 2 dropper post.


The Headlands features a seattube port for internal dropper routing, with the Headlands 2 coming stock with a 105mm/85mm dropper post.

Marin Headlands seatstay brace/fender mount.


The removable seat stay brace makes it super easy to add fenders for foul weather riding and commuting, while maintaining a clean smooth look when you don’t need the coverage.


Best of 2023. (machine translated) Adventure on and off the road - that's what the Marin Headlands 2 promises. In addition to a sporty geometry, the gravel bike is particularly characterized by its large tire clearance for up to 700C×45 or 650B×50 tires. This makes it feel good even off the road. The standard dropper post is also perfect for more rugged/rough use. Practical: A removable brace between the seatstays makes it very easy to attach fenders for riding in bad weather and the like.
