Marzocchi Shiver SC 2004 Front Shocks

4.25/5 (4 Reviews)

Product Description

The Shiver line of forks gives you unsurpassed lateral stiffness all the while offering up the unmatched smoothness of an inverted design. It's no wonder works motocross and road race suspension forks are inverted in design. Marzocchi brings this technology to the mountain bike. By inverting the stanchions and moving the majority of the fork's weight to the legs, the Shiver series reduces unsprung weight resulting in bump and steering sensitivity that is second to none.

Strengths:    Extremly smooth and plush.

Great agressive look

Weaknesses:    A bit heavy, but some pedalstrokes instead of coasting will do the trick

Bottom Line:   
Verry good freeriding fork. 100mm of travel i not enough for downhillriding tough. Works great on dirtjumps too.

Strengths:    stiff, smooth as, steel steer tube, 2yr waranty

Weaknesses:    heavy, long bed-in time, standard springs are far to soft

Bottom Line:   
after the long bed-in time these fork are by far the smoothest i have ever ridden, but with the standard springs they bottom out very easily (harder ons cost £40 and there worth ever penny), the steel steer tube and the 20mm axel make for a very stif front end, and 4 inches is all you'l ever need from this type of fork, but the weight is a bit of a let down. this is not for the weight watchers

Strengths:    Smooth travel, stiff, look wicked!

Weaknesses:    Bit heavy

Bottom Line:   
Tough forks with smooth travel. Took a few rides to bed them in but they are real smooth now. Makes your front end super stiff and flex free wit the 20mm front axle. Got them for 280 quid on e-bay brand new. These forks are for freeriders, dirt jumpers. Not for lightweight XC weenies! Would have given them 5 chilli's if they were a bit lighter.

Strengths:    Very plush,smooth and stiff!

Weaknesses:    maybe a bit heavy but if u into dirt/street it doesent matter,it comes with pretty soft springs but only bottoms out at the worst landings,and they should do!

Bottom Line:

Shiver SC - safe?

So I have a beater with a '02-model Shiver SC on it. The fork's barely seen any dirt - I didn't really have the confidence in an unbraced USD fork to throw it around offroad. Anyway, I ask 'safe?' because you never notice when you're actually riding the thing, but I happened to lend it to a mate ... Read More »

Shiver SC Parts?

I am looking for a 5" dampening cartridge for a shiver sc. I would prefer one with the lock out but I would also take a rebound only one as well. I have a low milage fork that I just did an oil change on and the lock out cartridge will only go through about half of it's travel before it stops. Marzo ... Read More »

Shiver SC fork... opinions?

Hey all, Found a deal on a 'zoke shiver SC. Its 120mm travel, inverted design with 20mm thru axle. I've heard good things about them. I dont really care about the whole "its flexy" bit either.
