Marin Wolf Ridge 8 completes line with GX Eagle build

The 2018 Marin Wolf Ridge launched at the Sea Otter Classic this past April with the Wolf Ridge Pro at the top of the line and the Wolf Ridge 9 as the less expensive build. Marin just released the details on the last bike in this group, the Wolf Ridge 8, which offers a more affordable price point.

The Wolf Ridge is a 160 mm 29er that Marin claims to be “the one bike to rule them all.” The Wolf Ridge 8 is built around the same carbon fiber frame and NAILED R3ACT-2 PLAY suspension design as the others in the line, but features the all new SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain.
