Wolf Ridge Tech 2

Naild R3ACT — 2 Play Suspension

Acting on Newton’s Third Law that “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction,” this system provides unparalleled pedaling efficiency and bump compliance through a unique four-bar design and sliding suspension element. Naild’s R3ACT – 2 Play system uses an advanced kinematic that establishes a greater balance in load stabilization, minimizing unwanted energy losses.

The NAILD R3ACT 2 – PLAY suspension system has a 60% overall reduction in damping (restriction) creating a bike that has both pedaling efficiency and bump absorption, with zero sacrifice. This is made possible by a feature NAILD dubs equilibro.

1 – Pedaling starts, causing forward movement.  

2 – This movement shifts the rider's weight rearward. 

3 – This rearward shift puts a compressive force on the suspension, which in the NAILD system is counter balanced by the extension of the slider.

Conventional Suspension

All current suspension systems balance pedaling & bump forces with compression damping, or simply restriction. This results in compression damping (restriction) in the shock to control the pedaling forces while riding. So, there is always a compromise between bump absorption and pedaling efficiency. 

1 – Pedaling starts, causing forward movement. 
2 – This movement shifts the rider's weight rearward.
3 – This rearward shift puts a compressive force on the suspension, which is resisted by compression damping. 

Wolf Ridge Tech 1


Unidirectional carbon fiber frame Marin utilizes the latest in high modulus carbon fiber technology and materials for the lightest and strongest frame possible.

Wolf Ridge Tech 3 2


Marin uses biometric fit data based on statistics of people’s body proportions, to develop the proper fit and weight distribution on each size of the Wolf Ridge. Using this data, we created four bike sizes that put each rider in the optimum position so that the center of gravity is the same for all sizes of people for balanced suspension kinematics, no matter the rider.

Wolf Ridge Tech 4


Full internal cable routing through the front and rear triangle requiring no zip ties or cable clamps for the cleanest look possible. 6061 forged cable entry clamps ensure your cables are neat and quiet.

Bike Set Up

The core values of the R3ACT – 2 Play suspension kinematics work different than any other system on the market today. The sag can be set between 20-30% of shock travel, allowing the rider to fine tune the ride height based on terrain. Steep and technical climbs can be tackled with less sag (20-25%) for better weight distribution as well as total suspension travel, while increasing the sag (25-30%) lowers the bottom bracket and slackens the head tube angle, for better downhill control. The total ride height variation is 16mm from 20% to 30% sag, giving the Wolf Ridge a ride tunability advantage over the competition.

  •  "I have to admit, the suspension works as billed, making this bike an impressive quiver killer."

  • "It’s so damn efficient you could race an XC World Cup on this thing. As a trail bike, it’s extremely rapid and delivers sharp and engaging handling at any speeds."

  • "The Marin descends like a powerful Enduro bike, with a lot of initial sensitivity and a great aplomb when hitting medium drops or big jumps. The bike sticks to the ground and tracks perfectly, whatever the situation. The straight, steep sections of trail are good, but the bike stands out in the areas of linked curves, where it descends with an amazing level of confidence...In practice we believe that this Marin is one of the best bikes we have ever tried and that really works as they say. "

  • "After the test with the Wolf Ridge with a wide grin on my face at the bottom of the expo site, I am convinced: The Marin Wolf Ridge is a bike like no other. Visually anyway, but also its riding characteristics, it stands out from the crowd of competitors. The R3ACT - 2 Play rear suspension provides riding characteristics that have not yet existed - in most cases, positive and in some cases just "different." I could not find any real performance deficits during the short ride. Whether it is really a "one-bike-for-all," I can't say at this time, but what I was experiencing is very promising. We hope this question will be clarified in a future detailed test."

  • "With the Wolf Ridge, Marin gets a real bang out for 2018. As the MTB all-purpose weapon, from cross-country to enduro, the fully should have all the fun what is needed: fast uphill, flowy over the trails and bocksteif (capable? -c) downhill... Marin has found a brand new rear-end technology with the name R3ACT - 2Play. Based on a four-bar system, a slider was also hidden in the large monostay, which was positioned above the bottom bracket to prevent any influence from pedal movements. At the same time, however, the chassis should ensure optimum traction and soak up impacts."

  • "The 160/160 mm 29er is a big-hit bike that climbs like a scalded cat. Yes, the bike is polarising and buying a Wolf Ridge will make you the talk of the trail, but you will be riding too fast to hear it."

  • "...the Wolf Ridge is a capable rig that dances to its own beat and is worthy of consideration."

  •  "​Their new bike isn’t just radically shaped, it delivers a ride experience unlike anything we’ve previously ridden....Indeed, the Wolf Ridge may well be the most efficient long travel 29er we’ve ever tested."

  •  "I have to admit, the suspension works as billed, making this bike an impressive quiver killer."
