Strength:

SO buttery when set up right
great rebound adjust and preload adjust - no leaks
bombs through anything you throw at it

Weakness:

a tad heavy
lockout stopped working after a year or two

This came stock on my Giant xtc 29er and I immediately fell in love. One of the best air forks I've ridden. In the past I've been on Rockshox reba, which compares well to this fork although I think the Marzocchi is a bit smoother and more fun to ride. Never serviced yet and still working, besides the lockout, but I've been told that servicing will fix that problem. I can hit anything with this fork and it soaks every bit. Even taken on downhill runs on my hardtail and it still has no problem. Absolutely love this fork and would recommend to anyone looking for a super smooth fork for a great price!

Strength:

15mm QR make it stiff. Doesn't cost much

Weakness:

Oh my. Such a bad fork. Had it opened up to sort out the stiction issue. No luck. Takes a whallop to get the damn thing moving. Terrible fork.


buy it if you have never riden a Reba or similar. You won't know the differnce. Do not expect smooth and buttery. Expect to be bounced all over the trail.

Strength:

Plush, responsive, great heavy duty fork. This is a great component for aggressive downhill & technical trail riding. Better if not as good as fox or rockshox!!! Makes you wonder why the others cost is so high???

Weakness:

If your a weight wiennie or you race your 29r. May not be the best choice. You cant beat price though!!

Simple well built fork that is durable and can handle anything you through at it. The best thing I ever did was trade my fox shock out for this marzocchi! !!!!!!! Also a great option of this fork, it comes as 120mm. You have an option to go 100mm or 140mm if you send it to marzocchi. They have service center in California. Affordable and quick.

Strength:

Stiff, easy to adjust, affordable, handles small and large stuff equally well

Weakness:

none

This fork is by far the best value out there. Sure, it is a bit heavy, but you do not notice that when you are riding. What you do notice is the excellent ride, the stiffness, and the fact that once you have it dialed in for your weight and riding style, it handles everything that the trail throws at you. All this for half the cost of simelar Fox and RS products!

Strength:

Buttery smooth action, easy set up, great looks, qr15

Weakness:

Not as rigid as you'd expect but still not nervous in the rocky, rooty terrain

Really great and plush fork, awesome value for money, typical Bomber: not the lightest but fit-and-forget type! Perfect for aggressive or hefty riders...

Strength:

Smooth, buttery, very little if any stiction, once rebuilt with the wiper inside removed and filled with Golden Spectro 7.5w fork oil.

Weakness:

Will probably need annual oil change services. Weight is around 5 pounds, but it is oil dampened and oh so buttery.

Running 68 psi, fork is quite simple to adjust dampening and compression. Way more smooth than a Manitou Minute, much, much less stiction, less shock gets to your wrists and forearms, less soon to cramp on rocks, roots, drops, etc. Superior to most air forks out there. The only thing I've ever ridden better on my WFO would be a very, very expensive Manitou Dorado, and that's at 8x the price, and it's a professional downhill model fork, true coil and oil.

If you don't feel comfortable working on it yourself, send it in to Marzocchi in Valencia, CA, and have Ronnie service it and do it up right for a nominal fee. Well worth it, you know it will be done right this way.

Strength:

Plush travel and easy adjustment from 120mm to 140mm.

Weakness:

None so far.

I was a bit skeptical about this Marzocchi fork as it was such a good price for what they were advertising. I can tell you I am a believer now. I ride rocky terrain and tight switchback trails with lots of roots and I can say it rides as close to my Fox that I paid over double the price. This is well worth the money to get a great all around fork for the tough terrain. Easy to adjust and the 15QR adds to the stiffness in the front. I plan on buying a 26" version for my wife's K-2 Summitt full suspension.
