Product Description

The Marin Rift Zone 1 is a 29er trail bike that makes the perfect entry into full suspension mountain biking. Featuring a fantastic value for money package including a lightweight alloy frame with 120mm travel and a RockShox fork for trail control, the Rift Zone will build your confidence on rough trails. A Shimano Deore drivetrain has a single chainring setup, giving a wide range of gears and a simple shifting solution.

Key Features:

  • Series 3 6061 Aluminium Frame with MultiTrac Suspension Platform and Boost spacing
  • X-Fusion O2 R rear shock controls the 120mm rear travel
  • RockShox Recon RL forks has 120mm travel to take on rough trails
  • Shimano Deore 1x10 speed drivetrain gives reliable and consistent performance
  • Shimano hydraulic disc brakes are powerful performers
  • 29” wheels for rapid rolling over all terrain
  • Sizes: Small (15”), Medium (17”), Large (19”), X Large (20”)
  • Colours: Satin Blue/Black
  • The Marin Rift Zone 1 is available with 0% APR finance

The Rift Zone is our 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.

MultiTrac is an acclaimed suspension system, fine-tuned to have a balanced ride capable of absorbing big hits with an efficient pedalling 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.

Highlights:

SERIES 3 ALUMINUM FRAME

The Rift Zone has a Series 3 6061 butted and hydroformed aluminium frame with 120mm travel MultiTrac suspension technology and fast rolling 29” wheels.

29” WHEELS

29” wheels are the choice for fast trail riding and endurance-level efforts for their excellent rollover abilities and large contact patch.

MULTITRAC SUSPENSION TECHNOLOGY

MultiTrac is an acclaimed suspension system, fine-tuned to have a balanced ride capable of absorbing big hits with an efficient pedalling platform.

    excellent entry level full suspension trail bike

    excellent entry into 29inch trail bikes, rides nice and seems to be put together very well. Have done 250 miles so far and its been faultless and smooth.

    Full Sus MTB Guide

     

    Is a full-suspension mountain bike right for me?

    If you’re new to the world of cycling, we highly recommend taking a look at our bike buying guide overview or our mountain bike buying guide to help you decide what type of bike is right for your needs.

    When you’re choosing a full suspension mountain bike, there are a few things to look out for which can help you to work out the quality and performance you can expect from a particular model.


    Suspension travel & usage

    Depending on the type of mountain bike riding you’ll be doing, you may want to have longer or shorter suspension travel on your bike:

    Travel

    Usage

    Pros

    Cons

    Up to 120mm

    XC

    Lightweight & efficient pedalling for long-distance rides

    Short travel is less capable on rough & demanding trails with large jumps & drops

    120 – 150mm

    Trail

    Lightweight, balance of climb-friendly efficiency & rough-descent capability

    More weight than a shorter travel bike & less efficient climbing. Less capable on descents than a longer travel bike

    150-180mm

    Enduro

    Capable of covering difficult & technical downhill sections. Wide enough gear range for climbing

    Heavier & significantly less efficient at climbing compared to shorter travel bikes

    180mm +

    Downhill

    Designed for highly technical & high-speed descents, with big drops and large jumps

    Heavy, and inefficient at climbing. Limited gear range means most climbs will require pushing the bike


    Frame material

    Full-suspension MTB frames are mostly made from either aluminium or carbon fibre, with each material having its own benefits & drawbacks.

    Aluminium

    Aluminium is lightweight, stiff, strong, and easy to manufacture. Manufacturers often develop their own aluminium alloys, such as ALUXX by Giant. Aluminium is found on a wide range of bikes, from entry-level & enthusiast bikes, right the way up to top-spec racing bikes.

    Carbon

    Carbon fibre is lighter, stiffer, stronger, and more expensive than aluminium. The most affordable carbon bikes typically use medium strength carbon fibres, while the most expensive bikes use stronger ‘high modulus’ carbon. Carbon fibre frames are found on enthusiast-level bikes, right up to high-performance bikes designed for racing.


    Groupset & drivetrain

    A bike’s groupset, or drivetrain, is where the biggest difference in component quality is seen.
    A complete groupset comprises of the following parts:

    • Chainset (aka Crankset)
    • Bottom bracket
    • Brakes
    • Brake levers
    • Shifters
    • Front & rear derailleur
    • Chain
    • Cassette
    MTB Groupsets

    Mountain bike groupset components are typically supplied by either Shimano or SRAM, with additional manufacturers like Formula, Hope, Magura, Tektro and TRP supplying brake systems. Shimano & SRAM both produce a range of groupsets to suit different budgets. The hierarchy table here compares the different Shimano & SRAM groupsets to determine which bikes offer the best performance.


    Wheel size

    You’ve probably noticed that a lot of mountain bikes come in a choice of wheel size, mainly a 27.5 inch wheel (also known as a 650B wheel) or a 29inch wheel (known as a 29er). Although there are still bikes which use 26 inch wheels, these are gradually being phased out on all but the smallest bikes. The difference between these wheel sizes can have a dramatic effect on the way a bike feels and handles out on the trail.

    27.5in/650b Wheels

    27.5inch wheels are smaller and lighter than 29er wheels, which makes them more agile and gives the bike a more responsive & playful nature. On the other hand, the smaller wheel size rolls less efficiently than the larger size, making the bike more prone to losing speed over rough ground and making it a little slower when climbing.

    29er Wheels

    29er wheels have a bigger rolling radius which makes them naturally smoother over rough ground. For this reason, a 29er mountain bike often requires less suspension travel than smaller wheeled alternatives. The downsides are an increase in weight, and the larger diameter wheels generate stronger gyroscopic forces, making the bike more stable, but less agile and responsive whilst manoeuvring.

    26in Wheels

    26 inch wheels were once the go-to wheel size on adult mountain bikes. However, they are now typically only found on the smallest frame sizes, and on junior bikes. 26 inch wheels are lightweight and give the bike very agile handling. The downsides to 26 inch wheels are their poor rolling resistance on rough ground, and the reduced contact patch due to the smaller wheel circumference.


    Suspension components

    Mountain bike suspension components (i.e. the fork or rear shock absorber) are also a way to identify the quality of a bike. While Fox and RockShox are the most common manufacturers, there are a number of brands producing suspension components for mountain bikes.

    Entry level full suspension mountain bikes (up to approximately £1300) may come supplied with a fork & rear shock supplied by SR Suntour, X-Fusion or RockShox. These components will allow a limited amount of adjustment, including:

    • Coil spring preload / air spring pressure adjustment
    • Lockout switch
    • Rebound damping adjustment on models towards the top of the price range.

    Mid-range & enthusiast bikes (up to approximately £3500) use components from brands including Fox, RockShox and Manitou. At this level, suspension components have features like:

    • Preload adjustment / air spring pressure adjustment
    • Rebound damping adjustment
    • Lockout switch
    • Multi-position ‘mode’ switch
    • Components towards the top end of the enthusiast price range may also feature compression damping adjustment as well.

    Top of the range & competition spec bikes (over £3500) also use components from Fox, RockShox & Manitou, with a few select models using parts from Ohlins. At this price, suspension components have features including:

    • Coil spring preload adjustment / air spring pressure adjustment
    • High & low speed rebound damping adjustment
    • High & low speed compression damping adjustment
    • Lockout switch
    • Multi-position 'mode' switch
    • Advanced low-friction coatings (e.g. Fox’s golden-coloured Kashima coating)
