🇺🇸 FOR THOSE WHO SERVE: GET EXTRA SAVINGS


100% Satisfaction Guaranteed


Riding a bike is fun, and having fun on the trail was at the front of Marin's  minds when creating the Rift Zone 27.5 (previously called the Hawk Hill). Built around their MultiTrac suspension system, the Rift Zone 27.5 is the most playful and fun short travel suspension trail bike to date. Entry level through to high-performance spec, everyone can fall in love with mountain biking over and over again with the Rift Zone 27.5.

The Rift Zone 27.5 is Marin's most playful trail bike, made for the rider that catches a bit of air off every root in the trail, is always looking for an alternate line, and ends every ride with a smile. This is an all-around bike with trail performance far outstretching the asking price.

Key updates see the Rift Zone 27.5 3 gaining Maxxis tires, while the Rift Zone 27.5 2 has been upgraded to Shimano’s new Deore 12-speed drivetrain, and the Rift Zone 27.5 1 stepping up to an 11 speed Deore drivetrain and adding tubeless ready tires, all while maintaining pricing remarkably similar to the 2020s.

- RIFT ZONE 27.5 TECHNOLOGY -

  • SERIES 3 ALUMINUM FRAME + 27.5” WHEELS
    The Rift Zone 27.5 has a Series 3 6061 butted and hydroformed aluminum frame with 120mm travel MultiTrac suspension technology and playful 27.5” wheels. 27.5” wheels fit most riders better and create a lightweight and responsive bike, the most playful trail bike in the line.

  • 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.

  • INTERNAL ROUTING
    Rift Zone 27.5 models are compatible with internally routed dropper posts, with internal rear derailleur routing for a clean look and snag free ride.

  • 148X12MM THRU-AXLE
    Boost front spacing is paired with a 148x12mm Boost rear thru-axle on the Rift Zone 27.5 3 and Rift Zone 27.5 2 for frame and wheel strength, and future wheel upgrade compatibility.

  • CLOSED 9-12 AXLE
    The Rift Zone 27.5 1 is spec’d with a 141x9mm axle that is upgradable to a Boost 148x12mm standard, allowing for more options if you decide to take your bike to the next level.
