FAST PACED, EPIC RIDES
PUSHING THE ENVELOPE UP AND DOWN THE TRAIL
CHASING PERSONAL RECORDS
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.
Key upgrades from Rift Zone Carbon 29 1:
- Fox Performance 34 Float/Float Float w/Reservoir suspension
- Shimano SLX/XT drivetrain
- Shimano SLX 4-piston brakes
- FSA Gradient crankset

UNIDIRECTIONAL CARBON FIBER FRAME
The Rift Zone Carbon models feature high modulus carbon fiber and monocoque construction to deliver the lightest, most capable, Rift Zone that Marin has ever made.
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. Carbon models feature 125mm rear travel, while alloy models now boast 130mm.
MODERN GEO FOR THE MODERN TRAIL SLAYER
Using the most from modern features, Rift Zone 29 models utilize short fork offsets and slack head tube angles to ensure that the bike handles perfectly from a seated or standing position, and travels effortlessly up and down the mountain.
Both carbon and alloy frames sport full internal cable/hose routing in the front triangle, and alloy models feature all-new brazed-in cable ports, providing a clean and rattle free cable set up.
NEW CHAINSTAY/SEATSTAY PROTECTORS & UDH ON ALLOY MODELS
2023 Rift Zone Alloy models have enhanced chainstay and seat stay protectors for a quiet ride, and utilize SRAM's Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH) to help future-proof the frame.
REAR SHOCK SETUP
Recommended Sag = 30%/15mm
Step 1: Set correct pressure in rear shock.
Step 2: Sit on the bike and cycle the suspension (*with correct riding gear).
Step 3: Reset O-ring and sit on the bike, DO NOT BOUNCE, carefully step off.
Step 4: Measure sag (from o-ring to seal of shock), If it does not match the bike’s recommended sag in millimeters repeat process.
Step 5: Adjust rebound setting to ensure proper control.
Marin recommends that all bikes front and rear suspension feel balanced
Step 1: After rear sag is set follow the recommended pressure from the fork manufacturer.
Step 2: Bounce evenly up and down on the bike, cycling the suspension up and down to make sure both front and rear suspension feel balanced, if the front does not match the rear add or release pressure.
Step 3: Once the bike feels balanced adjust the rebound damping to ensure proper control.
Fox Float with Reservoir
The Rift Zone Carbon 2 is a solid daily driver, especially if you’re trying to stretch dollars. Marin chose parts that get the job done and keep the ride fun without drifting into dentist-bike territory. The build isn’t fussy or high-maintenance, but durable and ready to work. It manages to be both practical and fun at the same time. The down-country style takes the best elements from XC race bikes and big travel all-mountain bikes in a way that fits the way (and the places) many of us ride most of the time.
