Strengths:    Solid as a brick. really easy to change the settings on it. very good when hitting big stuff. good quick reasle system, take seconds and mine has never failed. look awsome? has a hug compresson difference from nealy rock solid to nealy 50% in , just when you leane over the front. never need servising even know it is advised , mine hafent been servised sence 2009 and there still plush and amazing to ride.

Weaknesses:    There heavy weighing in at 3.2Kg. and unlike it being amazing over big jumps and rocks, but over small routs it feel`s like there no travel at all and kills your wrist after a long track.

Bottom Line:   
basicly there really good, and if you have a heavy frame ect old demo or somthing then these forks are amazing ! , but these on something with a light frame, and i can promise you, you will go over the handle bars haha

Strengths:    I have the 1.5 version, takes more to steer than if using the regular ones. Very beefy and can take a few drops without vomiting out the air like older air forks. The stanchions are 35mm so its pretty stiff on the cornering-- a plus.

Weaknesses:    this is the cheap 66 so I cant complain about more adjustments

Bottom Line:   
This is a good fork, kinda of a dummy fork with a few adjustments, but its a pitbull fork. Not real smart but gets the job done. Its legs are fatter than most on the market and its weight saving---if you want to go there, is that its air sprung. Buy one, set the rebound and air and forget it.

Strengths:    Insanely stiff, very plush over small bumps and rocks but can soak up bigger hits and drops perfectly even though I weigh 220 pounds

Weaknesses:    They are pretty heavy

Bottom Line:   
Love them, they work great (far exceed the rear suspension) and didn't cost an arm and a leg

2011 Fox 180 36 Van R or 2011 Marzocchi 66 RCV?

I am looking for a new fork for my 2008 Norco Six. I don't want a fork with a bunch of fancy buttons, just something that gets the job done without having issues. Any opinions about either of the forks, or reasons why one is better than the other? Thanks!Read More »

2010 66 RCV- No compression dampening?

Got my hands on a 2010 66 RCV in great shape for a nice price locally. Start messing around with it and realize that there's no difference in compression weather it's turned to full hard or full soft. I call 'Zocchi CS and was told something to the effect of "yeah, it's a base model, the compressi ... Read More »
