If you're in search of the ultimate full suspension mountain bike to do it all - be it all-mountain, cross country, or enduro - then the Marin Wolf Ridge 8 is the bike for you. The Wolf Ridge 8 sports at its core a full carbon fibre unidirectional frame that features the revolutionary 160mm travel Naild R3ACT-2 Play suspension system which means it has the widest range of climbing to descending capacity on the market. No longer do you have to compromise on suspension travel while in search of pedalling efficiency. Up front is the superb RockShox Lyrik RCT3 suspension fork with 160mm of travel as well as the Boost spacing (110x15mm) thru-axle for optimal ride quality.
The Wolf Ridge 8's drivetrain features SRAM GX Eagle 1x12-speed components that take everything you love about SRAM's pioneering 1x drivetrains and increases its wear life, toughness, precision, and smooth, silent operation. The 12-speed cassette utilizes a 50T large cog that increases the range of gears so you can tackle anything and everything in your path. Shimano components are also utilized for brakes with their XT hydraulic disc brakes ensuring exceptional stopping power in all weather/trail conditions.
The 29er wheels feature Stan's NoTubes Flow MK3 rims and Stan's NoTubes Neo hubs with Boost spacing (110x15mm thru-axle front/148x12mm thru-axle rear) for superb performance and reliability. Topping the wheels are a set of WTB tyres - the Vigilante 29x2.3" up front and the Breakout 29x2.3" in the back.

"There is no question that the R3act-equipped Wolf Ridge has something special going on in the pedaling department. Hey, it's a massively huge 29er, which automatically qualifies it for lackluster acceleration and those three leg-sapping pedal strokes that follow each time you bog down in a G-out or are forced to push over a steep roller in a taller-than-anticipated gear selection. In spite of its big-wheel genetics, however, it is an efficient pedaling machine. My times were four to six seconds faster on my two-mile test climb, and I bettered most of my popular test loops. It defies reason that those events occurred on a thirty pound, softly sprung, 160-millimeter-travel bike with the fork and shock set wide open."
"When Marin launched the Wolf Ridge, they laid the hype on thick, dubbing it, ?One ride to rule them all? while making hyperbolic performance claims we?ve heard a dozen times over.The thing is, Marin wasn?t lying. Their new bike isn?t just radically shaped, it delivers a ride experience unlike anything we?ve previously ridden. It may have 160mm of travel front and rear, but you wouldn?t know it when you get on the gas. It?s sprightly in ways you?d never expect from a 32-pound enduro rig, and easily matches the sprinting ability of some of our favorite short travel rigs. Indeed, the Wolf Ridge may well be the most efficient long travel 29er we?ve ever tested."
"Overall this is one impressive machine. You quite literally can?t buy another 160mm bike that pedals better than the Wolf Ridge while maintaining its supple and ground tracing performance. Cornering, climbing and descending are all incredibly close to being best in class. With a few small tweaks this could honestly be the do-it-all machine we all dream of. We?re excited to see the next evolution!"
