The Rift Zone 29 is Marin's most speed oriented MultiTrac bike, created for the rider looking for the speed and roll over 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.

- RIFT ZONE 29 TECHNOLOGY -
UNIDIRECTIONAL CARBON FIBER FRAME
The Rift Zone Carbon 29 1 and 2 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 29 1, 2, and 3 models feature Series 3 aluminum frames, with 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 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.
Both carbon and alloy frames sport 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.

- NJNicholas J.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars5 days agoAmazing value in a perfectly balanced package
I purchased this bike for my partner who is a novice MTB’er. I initially bought her a hardtail, and quickly realized the Rift Zone 1 I had purchased for myself was a better overall package for a new rider in her mid-40s, who didn’t need or want the immediacy and response of a hardtail. My bad! Luckily we found this Rift Zone 2 from GovVelo for a great price! It was a pleasure dealing with GovVelo and the bike showed up package really well in perfect condition. If you’re on the fence about your first full suspension bike, don’t hesitate to pick up whatever Rift Zone fits your budget. They are phenomenal bikes that leave nothing to be desired for almost any type of riding.
