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.

Purchased a year ago, swapped out the stem for a more fitting one for me, shortened the bars two inches for comfort, changed the rubber to a faster tread, and can honestly say it’s a very capable rig that can take almost anything you give. It’s not a lightweight but if your not climbing too much, you’ll enjoy this bike, which can’t be beat for the price anywhere with this component or package!

Bike was packaged extremely well with no blemishes upon delivery. Supplied with all the tools to assemble and was on the trail in 20 minutes. While not as quick ascending a blast descending and absorbed all the obstacles I threw at it. Great value for the price

Well I just ordered my bike, Marin Rift Zone 2. Will say that the customer service was willing to help and answer questions. Purchasing and buying the bike online was easy as it gets. Only complaint is no one answers the phone. Only way to talk to someone it seems is to leave a message. Which isn’t a big deal just more of a inconvenience when a guy like me is impatient and wanted to order the bike right away. Hopefully the bike comes quick and be riding it soon!GGovVelo.com1 year agoHey Justin, thanks for the review! Also, thanks for calling our attention to the phones not getting answered as well as they should. We're aware of it and are adding staff to help resolve the issue. :-)
- JJordanVerified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 stars1 year agoGreat bike!
I've been on just 1 proper ride so far, but this is a great bike for the price point and GovVelo shipped the bike efficiently (~1.5 weeks order to delivery) and in an easy to assemble state.

Quick turnaround time and great customer service from GovVelo me being impatient I did email them a couple times for updates and they were always quick to reply. I would recommend to them and the Marin rift zone to anyone looking for a full suspension bike for a great value. Took the bike on a 25 mile ride with no complaints at all absolutely love the bike!
