Strength:

Doesn't bottom out. Air Ajustable.

Weakness:

Heavy.

This is a sick fork, its heavy at first but you get used to it fast. Feels great on dirt, park, street, shore and xc. I hope I never have to switch it up.

Weakness:

Really heavy. Absolutly no preload. to stiff even with no air in the fork.

Okay fork but definatly not the best.

Strength:

Steel stanchions
Marzocchi
open oil bath smooth,stiff damping
air adjustability really soft to stiff lockout style
doesnt chip paint

Weakness:

dirt stick good to paint
remove a spring to enable a full adjustable fork run air in the no spring side up to 25psi and 15 in the other NO HIGHER
isnt a PIKE

this reveiw is very long!

Wont die its a hucked jumped and pile driven beast!
yes ill Admit it isnt bumb sensitive and makes noise but ppl will winge about anything its not really freeride more dirt jump and skate park, and smooth trails fork. too heavy for street but is do able

Can be free riden but watch for bumps if your running 2 yellow or stiffer springs.
remove one spring and add air to that side youl get more sensitivity with 1 spring and this makes the fork 100% more adjustable

INDESTRUCTABLE I SAY!

Strength:

Well everything is strong. I even had to remove the left spring it was so strong. The fork is good nice and stiff, except when u pull the front break too hard for long times, it tends to bend and twist a bit, but not a big deal.the stancions look great and the fork has a great colour.Good adjustability on both sides if u have a shock pump.

Weakness:

Well there aren't any, except that its kinda hard to take off the front wheel, i guess it wont be stolen so its good. The oil that the fork comes wit is way to heavy, i recomend going to a lite oil as soon as you get it. Also i think the break mount is in a bad place cause the front break doesnt have much power transfered to the wheels.

This is a great fork, a bit heavy but it works great. Love the 6 inch travel,but doent quiet get 6 inches out of it.Looks great, feels great, and I recomend it to anyone.

Silver Surfer   Downhiller [Jan 28, 2004]
Strength:

First of all, it's solid. It's strong and stiff and eats up big bumps. It's pluch and feels pretty good too for what it is. I dig the silver stanchions and the flat black sliders and the gold caps. It looks damn cool. The thru-axle is also a plus. Makes it a ton stronger and stiffer over a QR

Weakness:

Heavy. I heard somewhere that it weighs 9 lbs. But I can get over that. Other than that, nothing.

This is a great fork for the price. Like a Z150 for $300 less. It's plush, damn stiff, strong, solid, and looks the part. It's heavy, but this thing wasn't built for weight weenies and if you can't handle the weight, get stronger.

I ride everything, downhill, freeriding, dirtjumping, even some XC and trails. This fork excels on all of it, especially the dirt jumping. It's so stiff that it handles perfectly. I can say no bad things about this fork.

dan   Racer [Dec 13, 2006]
Strength:

F##ken strong fork i feel the steel stanchions are choice
20mm axel gives enhanced ridgidity
NO FLEX good adjusmets but not for fine tuning
good solid weight very stiff
great FOR DIRT JUMPING AND HUCKING OUT OF SK8 BOWLS AND VERT JUMPS

Weakness:

weight means strength and besides u get used to it and its really light i think

Get this fork heavy but indestructable, its a zocchi so strong and advanced really reliable and low maintenance just keep clean and it will last longer than you will think MARZOCCHI RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Erik   Weekend Warrior [Apr 23, 2004]
Strength:

Stock on a norco rampage comes with 150mm travel, I think normal ones are 130 mm. Doesn't bottom out and looks sharp. 20mm QR

Weakness:

Very heavy for a single crown fork. Sounds "swooshy" on small bumps -- if thats really a weakness

Great fork for urban assault/ dirt jump. Handles drops extremely well and has gotten me out of some trouble already. Can't bottom it out -- I'm 215 6'5", lighter guys might want to soften it up. I'd definately go with the lighter oil. Not the best fork for rocky terrain-- not too sensitive for small bumps (probably why its called a dirt jump). Air assist a little tricky to get right. If I were buying this fork straight up I probbably wouldn't go with a single crownd due to the weight. Norco gets these with 150 mm-- perfect for me.

Strength:

Very strong,
Takes hardly no pressure

Weakness:

Got a clickin noise after 2 days, but have read manual and it says that it the dampening! But i havn't changed it since i got them thnx marazochhi!
Bit Heavy
Not that smooth coz of the steel stantion

rule they take everting and when they weren't ever bedded in i did a 6 foot drop and they took it all!
These forks are gud for all hardcore types of ridin exspesh street and dirt jumpin! i wouldn't want they if you were building a light bike, me hardtail wieghts close to 40 pounds now!
Un breck able super forks!
It isn't worth goin to the Dj1s unless you have a 20mm only wheels as they are only made for DJing, and arn't for street!
