For 2020 the Rift Zone has been refined so that it represents the most modern 29” short travel trail bike possible. We took all the best attributes of the Rift Zone— MultiTrac suspension and the speed and confidence of 29” wheels — and gave it a full platform update to create the best Rift Zone yet, now offered with a carbon or aluminum front triangle. Rear wheel travel has been increased to 125mm, and updated geometry takes full advantage of the short fork offset for best-in-class handling, both in and out of the saddle. The Rift Zone is ready to make you smile from ear to ear, and best all your friends on every ride.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.Key Features:Series 3 Aluminum FrameThe Rift Zone has a Series 3 6061 butted and hydroformed aluminum frame with 120mm travel MultiTrac suspension technology and fast rolling 29” wheels.29” Wheels29” wheels are the choice for fast trail riding and endurance-level efforts for their excellent rollover abilities and large contact patch.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.
