Marin Rift Zone 3

Marin Rift Zone 3
This item is currently not available.

Details

The Rift Zone is our most playful trail bike, made for the rider that catches a bit of air off of every root in the trail, is always looking for an alternate line, and ends every ride with a smile. This is an all-around suspension bike with trail performance far outstretching the asking price.

Series 3 Aluminum Frame + 27.5" Wheels
The Rift Zone has a Series 3 6061 butted and hydroformed aluminum frame with 120mm 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 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.

Internal Routing
Rift Zone 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 3 and Rift Zone 2 for frame and wheel strength, and future wheel upgrade compatibility.

Dropper posts

A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.

Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.

Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
