Marin Rift Zone Bikes

Marin Rift Zone

Filter

    Our Rift Zone range covers more options than any other, with aluminium and carbon 27.5 and 29" bikes. There's a good spread of prices, from the £1655 Rift Zone 1 up to the Fox Performance Elite suspended Rift Zone CXR at £4265. The whole range have amazing specification for their price points, and are compatible with current standards should you decide to upgrade anything.

    Shorter travel than the more Enduro focused Alpine Trail range, a Rifty is a good choice if you want a bike with more "pop" that will help you pick up speed without pedalling by pumping the trail. The 29" options carry more speed over rougher ground, whereas the 27.5 bikes are more playful. Depending on model, the bikes have 125-140 mm or rear travel matched to forks with 130-140 mm of travel.

    For 2023, the Aluminium range has received an update, with the bikes becoming longer, lower and slacker. Our pick of the range is the 29" Rift Zone 2, which has a spec list and geometry that would be up to riding anywhere for just £2155.
