Strength:

Super plush, practically no stiction whatsoever, and feel!

Weakness:

none that I can think of..

This shock is absolutly amazing, its way more sensitive, and plush than the dhx air. The adjustments on this shock (compression and rebound) adjust the high speed instead of the low speed adjustments which are preset. The resivoir pressure can make this shock as linear or as progressive as you want, and you can acutally feel the difference. Whereas on the DHX you wouldn't feel as much difference in the shocks's progressivity. As an over all view, the shock has superb build quality, and the detents in the adjusters are loud and clear. I would recommend to most of the freeriders and downhillers out there (unless you would rather prefer coil, which i'm sure this is very similar to)

Strength:

Super plush, highly adjustable (you adjust the spring), light.

Weakness:

None yet

I absolutely love my roco coil because it was highly sensitive but the roco air is hyper sensitive and super plush on the rockiest of decents. I seem to get more travel out of the roco air wc vs. the coil. Go ahead and take this shock down the nastiest decent and kiss that coil over good by! If you want to drop some weight off your rig and increase control and speed, this is the ticket! BUY IT!

Strength:

light, adjustable, solid workmanship, ease of use

Easy to use, super fast response on race courses, tracks flawless, light and tunes with noticeable difference.
As others say theres flak against air shocks but the roco wc air isnt the one they are complaining about.
Im 230 bare 245 geared up and have hucked it to flat (7-8'), multiple DJ and doubles as well as cased them HARD, tons of drops, rock gardens etc... and Still no leaking and I havent even adjusted the air since I bought it. It doesnt leak and Marz tech support helped me get it dialed. Been perfect since day one.

Anyone that has ridden my bike swears its a coil shock when riding. I forget its air till someone asks then Im amazed all over again.

Id recomend to anyone, it can be tricky to dial from what others have said but im pretty adaptive to stuff and my settings or perfect.

Strength:

Suuuper adjustable, light, has taken some angry cases and held up

Weakness:

Setting up directions out of box blow ! Marz needs to get with the program there. I know your an Italian based co, but c'mon guys !

Gotta loooootta funny reactions to it, and lots of questions through out the season. I'm the only one I know of in the MSC series who raced on or even rode one this season. Unfortunately it took me 3/4's of the season to get this thing somewhat figured out, but damn, now that I'm on the right track, this thing is fire ! It survived pretty much the whole race season( I missed 2 races ). I'm a solid 185,and It's taken some brutal shots, and thank god allowed me to ride away flawlessly . It takes time and patience
to adjust, and if your serious about your suspension call the tech's at marz to get you headed in the right direction. There's a lotta negative talk around air shocks these days, but its def not comin from me, and its only getting better.

Strength:

Weight!!! One pound lighter than a coil and rides just like the roco wc coil. My brother has one and this rides just like it. I used to run a fox dhx on my bike and it worked but this feels so much plusher and is much smooth and more ramped as you aproach bottom

Weakness:

None so far

If you want to shave some weight off of your bike but do not want to loose the feel of a coil then I suggest that you buy this shock. Impressive!!!
