Strengths:    Very smooth & plush riding. Much better small bump compliance than my RockShox Revelation. Really great fork for riding up and flying down. I'm much faster on rocky technical DH trails due to this forks smooth absorbtion. Very stiff laterally offering excellent control. 3 year warranty!

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
Marzocchi Is Back! These forks are smooth, light and so far durable!

Strengths:    incredibly plush, light for what you get, tunable, durable

Weaknesses:    bit of a break in period where it topped out, maybe 2 rides.

Bottom Line:   
Great fork, bottomless feel, smooths out that first 1.5 inches like nothing I've ever used. Much plusher than a 36 and so far more durable. This fork even climbs technical better than anything I've used as it tracks the ground so well. Side to side stiffness isn't an issue and the nickel plated stanchions seem like they will hold up better than the fox (in for replacement after 10 months)

Strengths:    Light, plush, looks great, and locks out completely.

Weaknesses:    the lock out knob feels flimsy. I hope it doesn't break.

Bottom Line:   
Awesome fork. Out of the box it doesn't feel right, but once you take the time to make the proper adjustments and fine tune it to your weight and preference it feels incredible. 5 flamin' chilis for now!!!

Strengths:    Excellent small bump,incredibly stiff,super plush on bigger hits.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
Very happy with this fork so far it is a incredibly stiff fork way more so than the Lyric and probably stiffer than the Totem,it tracks the line you point it at and stays there no flex on g-outs or flatter landings.
Small bump is very good better than the Rock Shox solo air system,old school Marzocchi plush on bigger hits.You can tune it so it does not dive in corners.
Weighed the fork with steer tube cut to 8 inches,axle in and it was exactly what Marzocchi said it was 5.17 pounds.
Overall I am very happy with the fork and would recommend it.

Submitted by gtovey a Weekend Warrior from Boise, ID

Date Reviewed: September 2, 2010

Strengths:    All the parts are made out of metal.

Weaknesses:    I should first by mentioning that this was a Marzocchi warranty replacement for my 09 55 ATA Micro. Marz had it 2 times in 3 months and after it failed for the 3rd time I fought for about a month to get Marz to send me something different. This is what they sent. Straight out of the box there was a weird clunking feeling. The fork would "catch" about half way through the travel on the way down and again on the way up. I figured it was all a matter of break-in and let it slide. Sadly, it was not a matter of break-in at all as it's still having this problem and more. Forks are supposed to become smoother with use, not more harsh. This one decided to do just that. Small bump sensitivity isn't there at all and play has developed in the stanchions. I'm going to pull it apart later this week to see if there's something wrong with it from the inside that can be fixed. I've had it with Marzocchi's customer service and have no intentions of sending it back in to them again.

Bottom Line:   
Don't buy this fork. Trade your buddy a hotdog and soda (not even a beer) for his when he gets fed up and puts something real on his bike.

Strengths:    So far it does exactly what it says on the 2010 tin !

Weaknesses:    None thus far

Bottom Line:   
I've almost forgotten i was expecting these to break. They felt bedded in after about 2 hours and feel as solid as the 36's, plus they're spanking n look gooooood ! My faith in zocchi is growing again but it's early days yet.

Submitted by biking435 a Downhiller from Farmington,Ut,USA

Date Reviewed: October 31, 2009

Strengths:    Very plush, feels like the marzocchis of old. I had an 08 55 ata micro that was fixed 3 times by marzocchi they finally just gave me a new fork and to be honest I was very skeptical. put the fork on and my bike became much more sporty instantly. The old 55 was very flat and adjustments did not seem to help. This fork is very responsive--feels like the 66's of 05-07. very light rebound and lockout features actually work this time. Very good all around fork I was finished with marzocchi after my problems with this fork and my current problems with my 08 ata wc but i have an open mind now. The 2010 is that much better than the 08

Weaknesses:    the air preload knob on the right side does not seem to make much difference overall on the fork

Bottom Line:   
I really am impressed so far with this fork. I hope that reliability will not be an issue--won't know for at least a year but so far seems like the forks of old but lighter.
