Strengths:    Grips like a mofo, very durable outsole, comfortable to wear, short break-in period, cheaper than 5.10 Impact Lo (same shoe)

Weaknesses:    Grips like a mofo, white and black model feels like it should be sold with a zoot suit or a ponce hat maybe (take that MTBR anti-profanity big brother)

Bottom Line:   
I use DMR V12 pedals and they are excellent platform pedals, however, they shred the outsole of shoes under normal circumstances over time.

People on MTBR and elsewhere rave about 5.10 shoes and the Bomber shoes are 5.10 Impact Lo shoes with a Marzocchi tag and different styling.

I was very skeptical of a shoe making such a difference in pedal grip and my ability to ride.

I can't believe how grippy these shoes are with my pedals.

The stiffness of the shoe combined with the grip has allowed me to ride so much better with more power and less fatigue than with the Nike trail shoes I was using before.

I was blown away after my first couple of rides with these shoes when the outsole was not marked up or nicked by my DMR pedals.

I have high arches and wide feet and I found that these shoes fit true to size and that they are no problem in terms of width.

Very comfortable shoe to wear and I pretty much forget about them being on my feet other than my feet are solid on my pedals.

Overall value, durability, and performance means that these shoes get 5 chilis.

Would go with the 5.10 Impact shoe if I couldn't find this one anymore. Marzocchi name meant $25-35 less clams to purchase than the the same thing with a 5.10 tag on it.

Bomber 55's very little travel, should I replace or fix?

I have a 2009 Norco Sasquatch with the stock Marzocchi Bomber 55's. I had an issue with the fork a couple years back and had them sent to Marzocchi to be fixed (there was apparently a stuck valve). Ever since having the fork fixed, there is only about 40mm of travel, and the rebound on it is rid ... Read More »

Is it worth it to rebuild these 9 year old forks for $120 or more? The only shop that I know of rebuilding these are " ... Read More »
