What's Next For Marzocchi?
Thats exactly what happened and the quality went to shit, notice how suntour havent really done much since marzo moved elsewhere. Marzos failure is all down to the reliability issues from production being done by suntour or whoever the 3rd party manufacturer is.

First Look: RockShox Lyrik and Yari
Totem failed because the original lyrik was so good and hit a great weight balance/price point. being just a tad over 2.4kg(solo air) whilst much lighter than a 66 . yes the SL version was pretty light @2.6 but i remember those being the first marzo that really started suffering from production issues. I remember the RCs weighed in at a gnats cock under 3kg although claimed weight was 2.8. The thing was most people were riding 32mm forks so jumping to 40mm totem with the weight penalty when you could have a lyrik at the same weight as a 32mm pike was a no brainer. 2 step was crap but again so was ATA and talas at the time. Now everything is a lot lighter, RS should be using the totem chassis and making it as light as possible (if they can shave the lyrik from 2.4 to 2 then surely the bigger chassis could be trimmed down too) with 180mm travel. the 180mm market is pretty damn small i will agree but if your gonna bother to put something out at least make it what the people buying that kinda thing are looking for

The only boxxer that is/was lighter than a totem is a WC which was at least £300 more. 2015 team has only just got under 2.9kg. Original totem IIRC was 2.85kg if there's no market for a fully adjutable totem/lyrik, why are fox still making the 36 180 RC2 float ?

RS still has nothing to fight with the 180mm rc2 36 with. 3 comp settings isnt gonna cut it against independent H/LSC. if theyd have made a mini version of the charger in the boxxer and dropped that in itd be better. I'm not a huge fox fan but if i wanted a 170/180 single crown DH fork regardless of 26 / 27.5 id be going for a 36 rc2 or dropping a 3rd party damper with more adjustment into this chassis.

At least we know how the design decisions have been going down at RS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wj84tfS7ag4

Epic fail by RS why the hell would you want RCT3 in a lyrik and 15 mm come on man ffs. Yari + avalanche cartridge (if they decide to do one) will be the option of choice looking at these specs. Fox must be loving this with Marzo on the ropes and RS churning out a long travel pike.

Marzocchi is Dead, Long Live Marzocchi
I really hope someone like shimano does buy marzocchi, theyve had some rough times in recent years but theyve made some awesome kit. 66 although it was a tank of a fork was whompingly good for its day
