The new Rift Zone 29 is Marin's most speed-oriented MultiTrac bike, created for the rider looking for the speed and rollover 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.
Series 3 Aluminum Frame
Marin's Series 3 Aluminum frames feature detailed forgings, highly manipulated tubes, and full internal cable routing, giving the rider a high feature and high-performing upgrade-worthy platform.
MultiTrac Suspension Technology
MultiTrac is an acclaimed suspension system, fine-tuned to have a balanced ride capable of absorbing big hits with an efficient pedalling 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.
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.
