FAST GROUP RIDES


The Rift Zone is our most speed oriented MultiTrac bike, created
for the rider looking for the speed and roll over capabilities of
29” wheels in a trail capable package. Long, low, and slack trail
geometry is more aggressive than an XC race bike for more
control at top speed, and more fun while chasing seconds.

Technology

Rift Zone 1

Series 3 Aluminum Frame

The Rift Zone has a Series 3 6061 butted and hydroformed aluminum frame with 120mm travel MultiTrac suspension technology and fast rolling 29” wheels.

Trail 29 Tech Icon

29” WHEELS

29” wheels are the choice for fast trail riding and endurance-level efforts for their excellent rollover abilities and large contact patch.

Rift Zone 2

Multitrac Suspension Technology

MultiTrac is an acclaimed suspension system, fine-tuned to have a balanced ride capable of absorbing big hits with an efficient pedaling platform. The rocker link provides a progressive leverage ratio for the rear shock for small bump sensitivity and the feeling of a long travel system on large drops and rocks.

Rift Zone 3

INTERNAL ROUTING

Rift Zone models are compatible with internally routed dropper posts, with internal rear derailleur routing for a clean look and snag free ride. 

Rift Zone 4

148x12mm Thru-Axle

Boost front spacing is paired with a 148x12mm Boost rear thru-axle for frame and wheel strength, and future wheel upgrade compatibility.

Bike Set Up

MultiTrac is an acclaimed rear suspension
system, fine-tuned through years of riding
and testing to have a balanced ride capable
of absorbing big hits while having an efficient
pedaling platform. The rocker link provides a
progressive leverage ratio for the rear shock for
small bump sensitivity and the feeling of a long
travel system on large drops and rocks. Available
on our Rift Zone, B-17, and Hawk Hill families
of bikes.

Reviews

  • "Fast and agile, this is a long legged bike taking its cue from XC bikes but making use of some modern geometry to get maximum performance."

  • "Marin’s new range of aluminium full suspension bikes is strong and is hitting some tight price points to bring performance bikes to more riders. With the Rift Zone, Marin has made a fast, fun and efficient trail bike that will deliver on a huge range of trails. With prices that won’t break the bank, the range allows for off-the-peg bikes that can hit the trail hard, or provide a solid base for some strategic upgrades. The more generous sizing and low standover make a bike that can be sized on length and gives huge confidence to squeeze every last ounce of performance possible from that 120mm of travel."

  • "Our top choice among the short-travel bikes is the Marin Rift Zone 2, with its go-anywhere, ride anything pairing of 120 millimeters of front and rear suspension and 29-inch tires. It even gets a SRAM NX drivetrain with some SunRace and FSA bits thrown in to keep the price down. That includes the TranzX dropper post that maxes out at 120-millimeters on medium thru XL sizes, but it’s one of few functional compromises you’ll make on a bike that’s got some solid fundamentals like Boost spacing, a threaded bottom bracket, and 29-millimeter internal width rims."
