Marin Wolf Ridge Launches
Marin® Launches Wolf Ridge™
One Bike To Rule The Ride
Marin today launches the Wolf Ridge – one bike that redefines how we think…a bike that climbs like a whippet and descends like a hooligan pointer – here at Swinley we cannot wait to get our hands on the bikes as soon as they hit the UK shores – we have pre-ordered a size run and we will host a full demo day as soon as they are in the UK together with Marin Bikes – keep your eyes peeled for further details!
The Wolf Ridge was in development for nearly five years, the Wolf Ridge was designed using biometric data for the perfect rider fit, applied physics for ideal kinematics based on a rider’s centre of gravity, and the desire to create a bike that addresses the holy grail of mountain biking: a full suspension rig that doesn’t make you miss your hardtail on the climbs, and one that you can confidently point towards technical singletrack for the descent.
The Wolf Ridge defines a paradigm shift in thinking that will force the rest of the market to take notice:
– Where travel does not define category
– Where a bike can climb and descend equally well
– Where a bike can be at home in any terrain, with any rider – through the fast and flowy, or the rough and tumble
– Where the mountain bike experience is mind-blowing
The heart of the Wolf Ridge – suspension to redefine our thinking – the R3ACT – 2 Play® system
Marin has teamed up with Naild® to design, craft and build the Wolf Ridge around their revolutionary R3ACT – 2 Play® system, bringing a mountain bike to market that out-performs all expectations of performance, providing the rider with the best mountain biking experience that is available today.
