Strengths:    Stiff with zero flex. Really well engineered progression through the travel.

Weaknesses:    None - really.

Bottom Line:   
Awesome fork for those that need and can use the strength, stiffness and big hit control.

The progression throughout the travel is superb with a high ramp up near the end of the stroke to soak up big hits with ease. Small bump compliance when running very low (or zero) PSI air assist is equally good as the big hit control. Really well engineered.

Stiff and strong, with zero flex and will handle full on downhill runs, drops, rocks, whatever you throw at it. The stanchions and whole fork is incredibly strong. It's heavier than other forks, but nothing compares to the stiffness, plushness and strength. Get the oil levels right, set air pressure for your weight and needs. Marzocchi's perhaps need a bit more 'tuning' than other offerings but once you get them dialled in and understand them, they are superb.

Have been riding Marzocchi's since the late 90's and the latest 66's (any of them) are the best forks I've ever ridden. No problems with it at all. Never have to think about this fork, it will handle all you can throw at it, eat it up and ask for more.

I just like to know which one I should use, and why, and what the other one is for, or how i should combine them. I mailed mar ... Read More »

Can't get enough sag for my fork (2009 Marzocchi 66 RCV)

Hey guys, I was starting to dial in my 2009 Marzocchi 66 RCV last night. I got on with my full face helmet and clothes and made sure that the fork doesn't have air in both legs. I sat on and got 1.5" of sag. 1.5" = 38.1mm. The fork is 180mm of travel. So 38.1/180x100 = 21%of sag. When ... Read More »
