In 1997, the Marzocchi Bomber Z1 burst onto the scene and bucked all contemporary trends.
The Z1 is freedom from the status quo. Step outside enduro’s obsession with counting seconds and go have some fun in the woods. The Z1 is an aggressive all-mountain and enduro fork with a different viewpoint for riders’ priorities. Everyone wants suspension performance that’s smooth as butter with great traction and control, and that’s where the Z1 shines.
The Z1 keeps it simple with intuitive compression sweep adjustment, from locked out to full open. Simple rebound adjustment covers the range from fast to slow rebound for a full range of rider weights and preferences without overcomplicating things. Plus, it’s biased towards stiffness, ride performance and durability, so while it’s carrying a few extra grams, you probably won’t notice because you’re having too much fun.
FIT GRIP Sweep is a robust closed cartridge style damper with the ability to recirculate and purge a proprietary bath fluid to maintain consistent cartridge fill and damping performance over time. The Sweep lever adjustment is a combined LSC/HSC compression adjustment that ranges from open to lockout.
EVOL increases negative air spring volume, specifically to provide optimum small bump sensitivity.
