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 29 brings together trail-taming 29" wheels, 130mm of rear travel, a lightweight aluminum frame and our super-plush MultiTrac suspension platform for endless good times on the trails.
The Marin Rift Zone 29 1 is your gateway to the Rifty family, made to push the limits of your riding but not your bank balance. It's built with super reliable X-Fusion suspension, grippy Vee Crown Gem tires, plenty of Shimano and a hand-picked selection of our favorite Marin components.
RIFT ZONE 29 TECHNOLOGY
UNIDIRECTIONAL CARBON FIBER FRAME
The Rift Zone Carbon models feature high modulus carbon fiber and monocoque construction to deliver the lightest, most capable, Rift Zone that Marin has ever made.
SERIES 3 ALUMINUM FRAME
Rift Zone alloy models feature Series 3 aluminum frames, with detailed forgings, highly manipulated tubes, and full internal cable routing with new braze-in ports, 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 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. Carbon models feature 125mm rear travel, while alloy models now boast 130mm.
MODERN GEO FOR THE MODERN TRAIL SLAYER
Using the most from 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.
Both carbon and alloy frames sport full internal cable/hose routing in the front triangle, and alloy models feature all-new brazed-in cable ports, providing a clean and rattle free cable set up.
NEW CHAINSTAY/SEATSTAY PROTECTORS & UDH ON ALLOY MODELS
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.

- RHRex H.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 stars3 months agoMarin Rift Zone 29 1
The bike works great and shifts well. The suspension felt good and the bike rolled really well. I really like it. The only downside is it doesn’t have a dropper post. Other than that its great.
- GGregVerified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 stars7 months agoRift Zone
The bike came quickly and was ready to rip. I am just getting into riding after years of injuries. This seems like the perfect bike to huck down some trails without breaking the bank.
- TTylerVerified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 stars8 months agoFirst bike
Bought this as my first ever MTB. Enjoying it so far with very few complaints. After several rides the only thing I can say is that the seat that comes with it is extremely uncomfortable. Wish it had a lockout for the rear suspension like most of the other bikes I was looking at. Highly recommend for a first bike!
