Feel the Rifty Love! Marin's take on the ultimate do-it-all trail bike, the Marin Rift Zone is made to party, whatever your jam might be. Your ideal partner for everything from all-day epics, to local shred laps to big mountain adventures, the Rifty is Made For Fun.

The Rift Zone 27.5" brings together super fun and super shreddy 27.5" wheels, 130mm of rear travel, a lightweight aluminum frame and our super-plush MultiTrac suspension platform for endless good times on the trails.

XR means Extra Rad. The Marin Rift Zone XR is our hard-charging special edition, made for riders that want the raddest, baddest Rifty in the range. Marzocchi Bomber Z1 fork, Fox Float X shock, Maxxis Assegai tires, X-Fusion Manic dropper, loads of Shimano, loads of Marin fine details.

Key upgrades from Rift Zone 27.5 2:

  • Marzocchi Bomber Z1/Fox Float X suspension
  • Shimano SLX/XT drivetrain
  • Shimano M420 4-piston brakes w/203mm (F) & 180mm (R) rotors
  • Maxxis Assegai 2.5" tires


        The Rift Zone 27.5 has a Series 3 6061 butted and hydroformed aluminum frame with 130mm 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 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.

        Trail geometry with 430mm chainstays, low bottom bracket, long top tube, and a slack 65.5° head angle, combined with lightweight and responsive 27.5" wheels make for a playful and quick handling bike.

        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 XR 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.

        2023 Rift Zone Alloy models have enhanced chainstay and seat stay protectors for a quiet ride, and utilize SRAM's Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH) to help future-proof the frame.
