Strengths:    light (compared to my last fork), super smooth, super adjustable, stiff, purple, easy to tune

Weaknesses:    so far i haven't noticed any

Bottom Line:   
got this fork about 4 months ago and have ridden quite a bit. it took 2 pounds off my front end, stiffened it up, added some travel, and badass-ified my bike to the max. i've always ridden marzocchi stuff, and this fork does not disappoint. i ride every kind of trail, from relatively smooth stuff, to really technical droppy, jumpy big stuff, and this fork makes it that much better. love it.

Strengths:    strong, plush, adjustable

Weaknesses:    none really

Bottom Line:   
I scratched the stanchions on my 09 55 rc3 pretty bad. Sent it in for repair and marzocchi offered a good deal on the 2010 model. I jumped on the deal. I am glad I did because the 2010 model is way better. The biggest improvement from the 09 to 10 models was replacing the air preload with a coil preload. While the 09 model was a pain to get set up propertly, the '10 model was good to go straight out of the box. Very little adjustment needed. Tunning is very intuitive with a wide range of adjustment.

I ride everything from trail to resort and this fork handles it all.

5 chillis on value cause I paid much less than retail.
5 chillis overall just for being an outstanding fork.

Good job Marzocchi.

Strengths:    Smooth like butter out of the box. great rebound adjustment compression adjustment. spring preload adjustment and air assist. Extremely tunable to any type of riding situation. Laterally stiff... in a good way.

Weaknesses:    only miss is that it is a little heavier than other brands. but the succulently smooth and useable travel makes it completely worth it.

Bottom Line:   
This is an absolutely breath taking fork. super adjustable, super smooth and has great lateral stiffness. This is by far the best fork I have ever ridden. Techs at marzzocchi offer great service and are very willing to help with any questions.

2013 Marzocchi 55 RC3 Ti Oil Change question

Just changed the oil in my 55 EVO Ti V2 last night. Dampener side oil looked great (I haven't had the fork very long). On the spring side the oil looked like jelly. I was thick and came out in globs. The sleeve that isolates the spring from the inside of the stanchion tube was extremely brittle ... Read More »

55 rc3 ti. Add oil?

A buddy has a 2013 55 rc3 ti but says that it goes through it's travel to easily. He called Marz and they told him to 'add oil'. Chris doesn't know the fork that well so he didn't ask what side or anything, but mentioned '260'. I take it that Mars is recommending to add 30cc to the spring side? How ... Read More »
