Sweet, but I gotta say it looks pretty ugly. They should either drop the red or the black. In any case, sounds great, hopefully they'll make the piggy back model in 7.5x2.5. Looking forward to blowing wads of money in a few months.

What are you putting that on or did you mean 7.5x2.0?

here is the pic if the link didn't work for anyone like it didn't work for me.


Text from article:

Tom Rogers, Marzocchi's top gun suspension guy, has been testing prototype air shocks. The version we tried was a piggyback-type for all mountain and big hit bikes. Tom was already stoked on its smooth performance. The reservoir had a three-way pedal-platform adjustment, which was very effective. The full-hard platform setting has a blow-off feature that makes it (as Tom explains) perfect for big drop landings too, because of the additional compression damping available in that mode.

The shaft/body is aluminum with a hard nickel plating that is more slippery and less inclined to stress-cracking than more common hard-anodized types. Marzocchi's shock program has relied upon heavy coil/over springs. The new air-sprung platform will complete their lineup. The piggyback version will be targeted at long-travel suspension, and a shorter-stroke, lighter weight model with an in-line reservoir is also in the works for cross-country trailbikes. Look for a full test when the first production shocks are available this coming summer.

Yeah, exactly, 7.5x2.0, thanks for catching that.
