Product Info

The Marin Rift Zone XR 27.5 Complete Mountain Bike is a trail ready ripper capable of hanging with the very best. This build is the hard-charging special edition, and the clue is in the name: 'ER' stands for 'Extra Rad'. That means it's kitted out with awesome components like a chunder busting Marzocchi Bomber Z1 fork up front, and a plush Fox Float X Performance shock in the rear, while the playful 27.5" setup keeps the focus firmly on fun. If your riding runs the gamut from XC slogs to downhill chunder-fests, the Rift Zone XR has everything you need and more.

Product Details


Series 3 6061 Double Butted Aluminum FrameFrom its advanced tube forms, threaded bottom bracket, and full internal cable routing, this frame leaves nothing to chance. It's made to exacting standards with today's best technology.

MultiTrac Suspension TechnologyMultiTrac 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.

Fox Float X PerformanceFrom aggressive trail to enduro, the advanced damping, fade free performance and class-leading durability of FLOAT X makes it the versatile and lightweight choice for All-Mountain riders earning their descents.

Shock AdjustmentsIndependent Two Position Open / Firm Lever, Low Speed Rebound, Low Speed Compression

Modern Trail GeometryThe slack head tube angle paired with a steep seat tube angle create a ride that will fly uphill with perfect front wheel precision but then descend like it’s on rails. The balanced rider position thanks to the steep seat tube puts your weight between the wheels for impressive climbing and handling on flats, while the slack front end and short rear center help to pull you through the rough descents and corners with an intuitive feel.

Internal RoutingCompatible with internally routed dropper posts, with internal rear derailleur routing for a clean look and snag free ride.

Universal Derailleur HangerRift 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.


Marzocchi Bomber Z1The Bomber Z1 is designed for riders ready to get rowdy. Silky smooth travel with the traction and stiffness where it matters. It’s not about counting seconds or fiddling with settings at the top of the enduro course. It’s pointing your bike down the line with the confidence that your suspension has your back. Bikes are fun. And so is the Bomber Z1.
