Marzocchi Roco Lite: Highest performance in under 200g

The Roco rear shocks are coming back in 2012 with a completely redesigned model: the Roco Lite. Lighter than ever before, every gram of the Roco Lite’s 198g is tuned to deliver perfect performance and reliability giving you the best value possible for your money. For a first-hand impression of the Roco Lite and all 2012 products, come visit us at our booth at the Eurobike from August 31 – September 3!

You already know the dampers of the Roco series as high-end dampers for freeriders, downhill and all mountain riders with high demands. Roco dampers offer the perfect setting for every terrain and make your back wheel stick to the ground like glue. With the new Roco Lite we have developed a rear damper that is designed specifically for XC and the perfect addition to your Corsa or 44 forks. As a team, the forks and shock are hard to beat when it comes to low weight and high performance.

The design of the new Roco Lite is much more streamlined and compact to perfectly fit into the overall look of your XC bike. Of course, we kept the lockout and rebound adjustment features for the new model to guarantee your best riding experience. The knobs and switch are particularly easy to reach and use thanks to the new design.

This year, Marzocchi is living it up in Friedrichshafen (GER) at the Eurobike from August 31 to September 3. Richie Schley, Andreu Lacondeguy and Sam Pilgrim will be hanging out at our booth and are looking forward to signing posters and answer all sorts of your questions. But even better than that, the Bomber Girl is back! She is waiting to meet you at our booth 302 in hall B1 – so make sure to drop by to take a Polaroid with her. With all the Marzocchi action at Eurobike, don’t forget to check out our new products, especially the new Roco Lite!

 Marzocchi is like Japan. Sure, we love their products now, but what about 1941? the '08 was the pearl harbor of marzocchi.

 hamncheez... what?! If there is any relation between Marzocchi and Japan, it is the Fukushima Power Plant and Tenneco after they bought MZ - contamination.

MZ got contaminated with typical corporate style management: "business's not about good products, it's about making money! If stuffing people with crap brings money, we go for it!"

 I dont think they intentionally sold inferior product. In the Mtn. bike biz that doesn't fly. They know that. I think it was more of a cost savings attempt that went wrong. By the time they realized it there were already two model years of forks out there.

 Thats seriously, seriously good looking. Hopefully all the new MZ rear shocks use those decals, that would be a HUGE improvement over the past couple of years.
