The Rift Zone has a Series 3 6061 butted and hydroformed aluminum frame with 120mm travel MultiTrac suspension technology and fast rolling 29” wheels.
29” wheels are the choice for fast trail riding and endurance-level efforts for their excellent rollover abilities and large contact patch.
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 models are compatible with internally routed dropper posts, with internal rear derailleur routing for a clean look and snag free ride.
