Marin Rift Zone

For Fast Paced Epic Rides

The Marin Rift Zone is the perfect machine for mixing it up between long trail days in the saddle and fast weeknight group rides.  It’s a brilliant all-round bike that bridges the divide between classic cross country bikes and modern trail bikes – fast and efficient for long days across natural trails, single track, double track etc, but more than capable over more technical terrain, and for blasting round trail centres.  It’s built for fun; plain and simple.  Exactly what an XC trail bike should deliver, and pretty much the ideal bike for UK trail riding.

“Marin absolutely nailed it with this bike. Not just the fit and finish, but the characteristics of this bike make it a great all-rounder. Something you can take on 90% of the trails and have and absolute blast, and it’s one of the best value bikes you’re going to get.” Trail Features

The Rift Zone represents the most modern 29” short travel trail bike possible – featuring 125mm of MultiTrac suspension and progressive geometry that takes full advantage of decades of trail riding experience to create best-in-class handling, both in and out of the saddle.

The Rift Zone is Marin’s 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. The long, low, and slack trail geometry is more aggressive than an XC race bike for more control at top speed, and more fun than a long travel trail bike while chasing seconds or covering bigger distances over natural terrain.

The Rift Zone features Series 3 aluminium frames, with detailed forgings, highly manipulated double and triple butted tubes, and tapered headtubes – giving the rider a high feature and high-performing upgrade-worthy platform. The Rift Zone’s frame sports full internal cable routing in the front triangle with Marin’s all-new internal cable routing grommets, providing a clean and rattle free cable set up.

The key to just how well the Rift Zone rides is Marin’s MultiTrac suspension technology.  MultiTrac is an acclaimed suspension system, fine-tuned to have a balanced ride capable of absorbing big hits, but with a highly efficient pedalling platform – making the Rift Zone a blast to ride both over longer distances and more challenging terrain. 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.

Using 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.

“The Rift Zone has long, low, and slack geometry. This makes the bike much more aggressive than a cross-country race bike while providing more stability at high speeds and more smiles through technical terrain” Mountain Bike Action, April 2021
