Strengths:    The strongest fork in the world.
Super Plush.


Weaknesses:    None. This fork is not heavy. Once you get the feel for it you can do anything on this fork. I even take it for XC trips.

Bottom Line:   
This fork is super strong. Last winter when I got the fork I took it to the local ski hill. I hit a huge kicker and when I landed the front tire brike through the snow. The headtube on my bike snapped right off and I never hurt the fork. It is super plush and makes even the worst looking bike look sweet. Recommend it for DH'ers and big huckers. Dont hesitate and buy a Monster T Today.

Date Reviewed: July 4, 2001

Strengths:    anything and everything. Massively Plush travel, and excellent damping.
Really good response on small bumps, and even better on big stuff.
(ran over a rabbit, and didn't even feel it)


Weaknesses:    a bit hefty, and tend to bottom out during high speed flat-bottom landings, but this can all be sorted witha heavier oil
(and they kill rabbits)


Bottom Line:   
This fork suits Big stuff, and it needs a BIG bike (super 8 works just fine) sticking it on a small hard-tail or even a bike with 4" on the back would be severe stupidity. the front will wallow like a hippo in mud, and it'll look like you've knicked the front off someones 'crosser.

BUT put it on a bike with 5" plus of travel, and it'll transform it inot an unbelievably nice ride, it'll soak up all things that have got in the way in the past, and.....

you get the idea.

They're great.

Similar Products Used:   nothing compares. Sorry. I've ridden zyzzyx (however you spell it) and attached things on all types of marzzochi, but honestly, these rule....

Bike Setup:   small framed Santa-Cruz Super 8, with D321's, hope 4-pots etc... details aren't important, it wasn't mine, but whilst my mate had his knee in plaster, I rode it hard, and loved it.

Strengths:    Everything about this fork is strength, you could probably go down the scarriest trail you can think of, with your eyes closed.

Weaknesses:    You dont use the word weakness with this fork, I have had some problems with the seals though.

Bottom Line:   
If you dont have this fork, you cant be a serious rider

Strengths:    Huge,Never bottoms,Looks killer,super plush right out of the box

Weaknesses:    price,weight (not a big deal but makes it hard to pull the front end up off of drops but i can still catwalk with it)

Bottom Line:   
This fork is killer I just got this bike 3 days ago the bike is killer right out of the box the next day i got it i went for a dh run and the fork was already super plush. I have so far gone on 2 dh rides i beated on it but could not get the thing to bottom out i just did an 8ft drop just before writing this and i still had about another inch more travel and i hardly felt the landing. I would suggest this fork to anybody it is way more solid than a Shiver.

Strengths:    This 4k is what nightmares are made of. Nothing get's in the way of these baby's. I've had boxxers, manitous, and nothing comes close. If you love 8 inches of buttery smooth bomber travel, then these 4ks are for you. These forks soak up everything from kerbs, sick dropoffs, and small buildings, so if you are serious about riding look no further, as there is no other. Beware the rath of the monsters....

Weaknesses:    The word weakness and monsters don't belong in the same sentence. These forks are faultless.

Bottom Line:   
remember when your parents told you there were no such things as MONSTERS'S?........they lied........be afraid, very afraid.......www.marzocchi.com........

Date Reviewed: June 5, 2000

Strengths:    Excelent turning radius, very plush, and really great control over the road. (And of course, it is the best looking DH shock on the market.)

Weaknesses:    I bottomed it out a couple of times, and it is a bit heavy, but otherwise it is a great fork.

Bottom Line:   
Great Shock, I preffer the Boxxer because I haven't bottomed that one out (yet). If you are a serious DH rider though, and go off about fifteen foot jumps, I would recommend to get the boxxer or any of the Manitou DH forks. Otherwise go for the Marzocci. I myself prefer the Boxxer over the Manitou because of the wheight (cant have it too light) and the looks.

Strengths:    BEEFY!!!!! The fu*kin' plushest DH fork i've EVER tried!!!
Very strong. This sick fork can handle anything, ANYTHING!!


Weaknesses:    It's not heavy!! F@#$%, all you pussies out there who care about the weight, get stronger!!! This is a DH fork! i haven't had any probs so far, but the seals are kinda cheap though

Bottom Line:   
THE fork for DH riders, plush, strong, beefy. The perfect fork for technical stuff. It's just amazing, you can stare down a 10 foot drop and fear nothing, never bottoms out.
With this little toy you can plow through anything that is put infront of you. Try it for yourself. I wish i could give this fork 10 flamin' fu*ks!!
