New 2020 Mountain Bikes from Marin

Vital MTB looks at the new full-suspension and hardtail mountain bike options from Marin.

Petaluma, Calif, - August 27, 2019 - Marin Mountain Bikes Inc., building on the momentum of the March Mount Vision release, further refines the line of forward-thinking mountain bike lineup for 2020.

 

Highlights include the best-selling Hawk Hill lineup receiving key spec updates, the popular Rift Zone lineup receiving geometry as well as spec updates, while new frames grace the trail/sport Bobcat/Wildcat, and Bolinas families. Finally, the classic steel Pine Mountain trail/bikepacking models have been reimagined, with Pine Mountain electric bikes joining the fray.

 

2020 Marin Hawk Hill 3 27.5

The Hawk Hill 2 is now equipped with SRAM’s SX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, and the Hawk Hill 3 is spec’d with Shimano’s new SLX 12-speed drivetrain, a Marzocchi Bomber Z2 fork, and Shimano four piston brakes. The Hawk Hill 1, which Bicycling Magazine dubbed “the best mountain bike,” remains unchanged, and all Hawk Hill models retain the best-in-class geometry, as updated for 2019. US MSRPs span from $1599 - $2649 across the three models.

 

2020 Marin Rift Zone 3 29

Entering its third year using the MultiTrac suspension platform, Rift Zone models receive a significant frame upgrade, with rear wheel travel bumped up to 125mm, and fork travel now at 130mm. Head tube angles have slackened to 65.5° while seat tube angles steepened to 76°. These updates better match the short fork offset trends that have become increasingly popular on trail bikes.
