RIFT ZONE 27.5 TECHNOLOGY
SERIES 3 ALUMINUM FRAME + 27.5" WHEELS
The Rift Zone 27.5 has a Series 3 6061 butted and hydroformed aluminum frame with 130mm 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.
MODERN TRAIL GEOMETRY
Trail geometry with 430mm chainstays, low bottom bracket, long top tube, and a slack 65.5° head angle, combined with lightweight and responsive 27.5" wheels make for a playful and quick handling bike.
Rift Zone 27.5 models are compatible with internally routed dropper posts, with internal rear derailleur routing for a clean look and snag free ride.
Boost front spacing is paired with a 148x12mm Boost rear thru-axle on the Rift Zone 27.5 XR and Rift Zone 27.5 2 for frame and wheel strength, and future wheel upgrade compatibility.
CLOSED 9-12 AXLE
The Rift Zone 27.5 1 is spec'd with a 141x9mm axle that is upgradable to a Boost 148x12mm standard, allowing for more options if you decide to take your bike to the next level.
NEW CHAINSTAY/SEATSTAY PROTECTORS & UDH ON ALLOY MODELS
2023 Rift 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.
