Strength:

+ Very Stiff
+ Very Plush
+ Lifts the front ot the bike up
+ 20 mm axle

Weakness:

- the QR is kinda useless with the under-tabs

The fork works marvellously with my rm6 dh frame. It is a LOT stiffer than a single crown (even one with a qr20 like I had), and the travel is gooey buttery smooth, just like we like it. The QR becomes useless because of the little tabs under it (my 99 Z3 qr20 didn't have the tabs, the QR20 then was a real QR).
This fork is a little bit on the heavier side, but for the amounts of fun it adds to the ride, its worth it. Makes your legs stronger anyways.
Its a bit pricey too (900 US$ new), but excellence always comes at a price.
This fork will definitely lift your bike up a whole lot, making for a much more stable ride on those descents, and even making wheelies and manuals a little easier to pop, even with the added weight up front (since it lifts the front, much of the riders weight becomes on the rear wheel anyways)...

Overall, this is really an AWESOME fork. Get yours now and start getting jealous co-riders.

Bomber GOOD
Jealous co-riders BAD

Strength:

Plush as hell, progressive spring rate, QR20+, stiff as hell, goes great with my Bullit. Has good ajustability.

Weakness:

None, except for the need to have spacers for disc brakes because caliper needs to be move over.

This fork is awesome. They should just have the 20mm clamps grip the hub without the QR axle. Not a big fan of progressive spring rate but its still a good thing. This thing is stiff as hell. 5 chilis each!

Strength:

Great workign fork
Seems strong

Weakness:

QR 20+ s***!

Swapping from a MOnster T, I found the geometry on my hardtail to be much mroe all around, versus pure big drop geometry.

I have taken 9ft to flat concrete, and around 15 footers to tranny on this fork, and it's working great.

Overall, I am quite pleased with the performance of this fork.

Strength:

all round sick fork

Weakness:

the qr 20 +

its a good fork for freeriding, strong yet not as strong as a monster t or shiver. would not recomend if you are goin to drop anything over twenty feet. its stiff and has the famous marzocchi feel. nice and smoooooth...like yer mom...not rough like a little umpalumpa. and dont forget, vagisil, its the key to life.

Strength:

none, this thing is a piece of crap. Who would buy one of these things? I broke it in a matter of hours.

Weakness:

Everything, It is just as flexy as any single crown. Get a shiver if you want real DH performance...sure "Evan" says its a noodle and it may feel like it when putting the wheel between your legs and twisting...but its not, its sooo stiff when actually dropping and riding stuff.
-It broke, the power M arch actually cracked after a smaller 7 foot drop.

This fork sucks, get a shiver, Boxxer or even a Z1 and save the extra cash for your lady you'll get more action from it...

Toshi   [Dec 29, 2001]
Strength:

6" of plush travel
Looks sweet

Weakness:

QR20+ is a pain in the ass
Not as stiff as it could be -- I get some disc rub

When riding along, the disc sometimes rubs. I think this is because the fork is flexing, and the sliders are moving at different rates. Other than this slightly annoying problem, I love this fork. I haven't bottomed it out yet, and I've been trying hard. The M arch might prove to be a problem, but I've heard that Marzocchi can actually replace the arch (instead of replacing the whole lower slider/arch assembly).

Matt   Downhiller [Nov 07, 2001]
Strength:

7 inches, 6.0 lb freeride fork, 20mm hub, super strong, super stiff, and super adjustable.

Weakness:

QR20

This fork rules. I have ridden every fork available and the Super T beats them all. It handles well, it is strong, it is stiff, and it all around dominates. It is like a Monster T with half the weight. The Super owns the boxxer(plus it won't snap in half like a boxxer)and any other fork I have tried. It always has been, and always will be all about MARZOCCHI!

Evan   Downhiller [Oct 19, 2001]
Strength:

Stiff. Seven inches of travel. Adjustability. Need I say more?

Weakness:

Haven't came across any yet

This fork is THE BEST freeride fork in the world. Haven't taken it to the dual slalom or downhill courses yet, but I have been riding some free ride and dirt jumping. I haven't bottomed it out yet, and it's been through some fairly tall drops. I totally recommend it over the Shiver. The Super T is stiff, while the Shiver is a noodle. GREAT fork!!!
