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.
