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.

Absolutely amazing service by the GovVelo Team. From the purchase itself, to the delivery, unpacking, assembly, and testing, the whole experience was top notch and every last detail was accounted for. Probably the best bike shop I have ever purchased from.
I used synchrony financing for the purchase, there was one issue with getting approved for the card, but the GovVelo team worked with me to resolve and ensured I got the financing deal I wanted. Less than a week from purchase the bike arrived at my door via FedEx signature required delivery.
One really cool thing was that the bike was pre-assembled, pre-tuned, and pre-tested by GovVelo. This was next level customer service, literally 5 minutes to connect the handlebars and front wheel and the bike was ready to ride!!!
I have bought Marin bikes in the past from other bike stores, and it had always taken me hours to assemble everything, usually with multiple trips to the local bike tech to make sure everything was installed properly - Not so with GovVelo!!! All axles came prelubed, headset came lubed and assembled, dropper post and remote came assembled, brake calipers, levers, shifters and drivetrain all came pre-assembled and preconfigured - AMAZING. All I had to do was adjust the settings on the front fork and rear suspension for my weight, and it was PERFECT. I also reconfigured the tires as tubeless but that was completely optional, the tires came ready to go with 20+ psi each, so you could literally take…GGovVelo.com11 seconds ago
Thank you so much for the kind words! We're glad you love the bike!
