Marzocchi

Marzocchi's 053 S3C2R doesn't look like anything else out there.


053 S3C2R Shock

Marzocchi gave us a sneak peek of rapid prototypes of two different shocks while at Sea Otter back in April, and both have now reached production. The first is the somewhat awkwardly named 053 S3C2R that's been designed to be a lightweight yet mega-adjustable air sprung shock for trail, all-mountain, enduro or whatever it is that people might be doing on their mid-travel bikes these days. The first part of its name designates that it's intended to be paired with Marzocchi's 350 series of 160mm travel forks, while the S3C2R stands for its on the fly three-position compression switch, separate low and high-speed compression dials, and single external rebound knob. Further tuning can be done by those with some mechanical skills by re-valving the shock if required, with Marzocchi planning on making such parts available to consumers in the future.

The black lever on the side of the piggyback bridge controls a three position compression system that can be adjusted on the fly, with a small hex adjuster on the opposite side (pictured below, left) that is used to adjust the amount of force required to overcome the compression damping when it's in its firmest setting. It's also remote compatible should you want the ability to adjust its compression on the fly, which is ideal for enduro racing.

Marzocchi

Its two piggybacks give the 053 S3C2R a unique look, with the smaller one housing the compression assembly, and the larger being home to a bladder compensator rather than an IFP.



The shock's unique looking double piggyback layout isn't just to set it apart from the crowd, with Marzocchi actually taking a different route than most of their competition when it comes to the 053 S3C2R's inner workings. The cylinder on the left houses the shock's compression assembly, something that you'd usually see on a shock's bridge, while the larger cylinder is home to a bladder compensator rather than the far more commonly used internal floating piston (IFP) layout. Why not go with an IFP? Marzocchi said that a standard IFP's o-ring seal adds a fair bit of friction into the system, whereas a bladder obviously does not. Using a bladder is nothing new, of course, as it's been employed in the moto world for many, many years, and we've been getting along just fine with the IFPs so far, so it'll be interesting to see how the 300 gram 053 S3C2R performs on the trail when it becomes available this coming January for $600 EUR. Will its bladder design make for ultra sensitive performance?



Marzocchi

The 023 S3CR is one of the most adjustable cross-country shocks out there.


023 S3CR Shock

And now for something for the cross-country folk. The diminutive shock's name implies that it's to be matched to the 100 - 120mm 320 series of forks, as well as it sporting a three position compression switch and compression and rebound dials. The shock's compression dial allows for separate low-speed adjustment, not something that you see on most cross-country shocks, and blow-off threshold can be tuned via a small hex key at the back of the shock. The 198 gram 023 S3CR will be in January.



320 LCR Carbon

The 3.3lb LCR Carbon is an entirely new fork for 2015 that's aimed at, you guessed it, full out cross-country racing. Stock travel sits at 100mm, with it being able to be tuned down to 80mm or up to 120mm internally as needed, and Marzocchi offers it for both 29" and 27.5'' wheel sizes.

The chassis features 32mm stanchions (with Marzocchi's Espresso treatment) that have been pressed into a one-piece carbon fiber crown and steerer unit, and new lowers and a revised 15mm axle are said to shave further grams. Internally, it utilizes Marzocchi's DBC cartridge that allows for both low-speed compression and lock out adjustment, as well as rebound tuning at the opposite end of the fork. Being a cross-country race fork, it's also remote compatible.

Marzocchi told us that they've also worked hard to limit friction, with the their Espresso coating on the legs and new single-lip fork seals that are said to keep things running ultra smooth.

 "all-mountain, enduro or whatever it is that people might be doing on their mid-travel bikes these days." Mountain biking, PB, we're mountain biking.

 I went for an Enduro ride once, but it was not across country, or All Mountain, just Enduro terrain, for my enduro specific bike, which is not an Enduro.

 Maybe I should go out more often and being at two major European MTB locations, and looking at my local riding scene, is not enough but my observation regarding Enduro as a "shameful" trend that people laugh at, does not look as well as some of us here on PB would like to see it. At bikepark in Hafjell during last years world cup, I saw huge increase in the number of "Enduro" riders. Actualy there were few DHillers as you might have categorized them few years back, judging by bikes and clothing. I'd say it was a few die hard DHers, lots of I-only-ride-park boys and also lots of Enduros. You nay say that Enduro caught on with geavity boys. Now at Lycra capital of Europe, that is lake Garda, Enduro blike in flashy, bee attracting helmet, baggy pants and soft knee pads is still a rare sight, XC/Marathon is going strong, what's funnier there are more electric bikes than 27.5. 29ers rule the place. So... I hate to ruin it for some people but it seems tgat at leadt from what I saw, it is the gravity boys that buy into this trend rather than spandex fireroad warriors.

 @WAKIdesigns The only people who think that Enduro is a shameful discipline are the kids who think biking is only done with a lift. If they can't buy a chilli cheese burger with fries in the immediate area they would stave to death. Apparently they hate change and are scared their downhill sleds will become obsolete.

The fact is that we can thank Enduro for the great development in trail bikes. Ride it like a downhill bike and climb back up. Also races like Megavalanche and Mountain of Hell are in my opinion some of the best events in mountain biking. The Enduro hate is just xenophobia, ignorance and fear of change. The fact is that Enduro bikes sell really well.

 Fredrik N, I agree but at the same time you are overexcageratinv things.
1.Enduro IS a term overused in bike marketing. I did use it long time ago, recently I describe my hobby as riding a bike in the woods, eventually MTB if pressed.
2.All sorts of people laugh at enduro incl. pros
3.Technologies crucial to make "Enduro" bike to be the way it is, were already well developed before the EWS came along that is: 6" aggro frames (Nomad, Intense 6.6 from 2006) , 6" light forks (36-2006, Lyrik 2007) Dropper post (reverb 2010) Tubelessable lightweight, aggro tyres (Schwalbe, Maxxis 2005 or even earlier)

 Yeah the fact that it is known the crowns creek and the bushings are wrong annoyed me as they only changed the crown. My bushings are so bad now that at plenney they stopped moving all together. I asked them to sort it all as they have a 3 year warranty but no they said my bushings are fine. Off to fox i go. Maybe Mojo customer service will be better. Shame.

 I had the '08 66 RC3, they were terribad, horrible; stiff as a board, the lowers slopped around on the stanchions (out of the box!), sold them to a 'mate', lol. Also had '08 55 ETA's on a Foes FXR 2:1, which were OK, the best of a bad year; buttery smooth, very controlled, but never got full travel. After hammering the crap outa them for a couple of years (without any issues) I thought they might want their first service, at least an oil change. Try that with Fox, if the forks aren't already dead. Sent the 55's off to the local Marzocchi rep, who replaced the damping system, and they were even better.

The '11 66 Evo Ti's on my VP-Free are in another league to any fork I've had before (riding mtb 20 years), absolutely amazing; set & forget, old school buttery small bump compliance, tracks like a laser, eats up big hits, excellent platform for trail riding, trouble free, they're the perfect match for the Free. I like them even more than the legendary '02 Monster T's I had on an an old Bullit; incredible performance, but not for a trail bike, an ungodly beast to push uphill. The 66 Evo Ti's shit on the '07 36 Talas I had on a Heckler, which were a total pain in da ass to set up, never got full travel, randomly leaked air, and required continuous tuning, attention, and maintenance.

 Because two piggy back reservoirs is better than one.
  • 5 0
 One is solely to take the compression then its passed into the second piggy pack where the internal bladder resist bottom out. Longer oil flow means smoother reaction of the shock. Plus it looks funky and cool, ahhahahhaha

 Cannondale DYAD is way more advanced. I can tell cuz it has more/bigger reservoirs and is way more complicated. I will not be satisfied until I can have at least 6 barrels.

 I wish I could afford new Marzo stuffFrown Going to college sucks sometimes:,( Such a radical company and I loved my 2009 66, it is still being ridden on a 2009 Knolly that I sold to a kid for $500 in the high scool mountain biking club I started cause he couldn't afford anything more and he really deserved it, and he shreds that bike like no one else.

 My Roco air shock works flawlessly. In theory this shock works even better. Hope some one at PB gets to test this shock long term. Fox lost a lot of customers with that CTD crap. Good thing there are so many options. i hope bike companies start putting OEM shocks and forks with greater variety.

 No pics of the other forks? ;-(
Marzocchi, can you please explain the differences on the 350CR and NCR? Is the espresso coating the same on both, and the damper the same, just the level of adjustment, remote lockout and seals that are different? I'm loving the new products, hope they ride as good as they look.
  • 2 0
 Pics of the other forks are coming out. I'll put them on our Facebook page and on here later today or tomorrow as soon as I get time.
there are quite a few differences with the CR and NCR plus we have the NCR Ti. it all goes like this:
350 CR: externally adjustable low speed compression and rebound, natural anodized stanchions, no lockout, air spring. Travel 160 (150 -140) mm Weight 2030 g / 4.48 lbs Wheel 27,5 Axle 15 mm QR
Damping (L) AER Damping (R) cr Spring AIR Stanchions Ø35 mm Natural Anodizing
Steerer Tapered Aluminum Brake system 6“post mount max disc 203 mm
Color Flat Black
  • 2 0
 This is officially from our catalog:
"More then what the majority of the riders need, the
CR cartridge offers the control of the rebound and
compression low speed keeping the suspension
smooth and the tiers glued to ground, no matter
the riding style or the terrain you are riding on.
Not enough? The high speed compression can be
tuned by upgrading to a custom shim stack: pure
motorcycle technology!"
the NCR:
eNduro pedal assistance
Compression
Rebound
NCR Air: Travel 160 (150 -140) mm Weight 1920 g / 4.23 lbs Wheel 27,5
Axle 15 mm QR Damping (L) NCR w/remote Damping (R) AER Spring AIR
Stanchions Ø35 mm Espresso Treatment Steerer Tapered Aluminum
Brake system 6“post mount max disc 203 mm seal SKF race seal
Color Flat Black
NCR Ti: Travel 160 mm Weight 2150 g / 4.74 lbs Wheel 27,5 Axle 15 mm QR Damping (L) NCR
Damping (R) Titanum Spring K 7.3 N/mm Spring coil Stanchions Ø35 mm Espresso Treatment
Steerer Tapered Aluminum Brake system 6“post mount max disc 203 mm seal SKF race seal Color Flat Black
Based on the LCR technology, it’s the ideal combination
between motorcycle technology and enduro competition
needs. Smooth damping, reliable and low maintenance as
an open bath system but light weight as a sealed cartridge
at the same time. Low speed compression and rebound
can be adjusted by turning the knobs, both with a plus:
the high speed rebound can be tuned by upgrading to a
custom shim stack and the compression can be slowed
down to challenge each climb!
The NCR uses a remote lockout and the NCR Ti uses a lockout that is fork mounted. The Espresso coating is on the NCR models (and select OEM CR models). SKF seals on the NCR models only and yeah, they ride pretty amazing and I'm not just saying that, they are like the Zoke of old.. smooth, sweet, buttery, endless travel that leaves you wanting more and not full of arm pump!

 I think the most impressive thing about these shocks is the amount of adjustment and the claimed weight. I can't wait to see how close they come to those claims in the real world. 300g for a long stroke, piggyback shock? Awesome.
  • 2 0
 @Marzocchi-USA

Will this shock be able to keep up with the bos kirk, which in some experiences seems to be much better in damping and performance than the monarch plus debonair and float x?
Because the 053 air canister looks very small.cannot imagine how the 053 can be very plush this way or at least it wont fit some frames leverage ratio because it s gonna be to progressive, no?
  • 2 0
 @bansaiman, I haven't had a chance to try the BOS yet so I can't say with certainty. I can say our 053 is every bit the Moto C2R rear shock without the coil and is the lightest piggyback shock on the market. I have rode the RS and Fox units and can say that the adjustability in the 053 is better (wider range) than both and can be made more supple and has a much better damping quality The nitrogen charge of our shock makes up for the smaller chamber (nitro won't heat and expand the way standard air will).

as far as leverage rates.. the shock is incredibly tuneable and can be as progressive or linear as the rider wants but yes, it (like other shocks) won't mate with all frame manufacturers. We are offering it with all of the standard leverage rates out there but not for the funky ones like Trek and Banshee, at least not for 2015.
  • 1 0
 @bansaiman the Propain site doesn't say what size the shock is so I can't say for certain. We probably do offer the 053 in the right size for it though. Same story with the Norco.
We make the 053 in these sizes:
190.5x51
200x51
200x57
216x63.5
222x70
  • 1 0
 Sorry, I didn´t express it precisely.... I wondered, if the leverage ratio will work with the shock..... teh required eyetoeye length of the Propain Tyee is 200*57 and of the Range is 216. Both have 160mm.

 Few years ago official distributor in our parts ceased business and we were without one for some time, exactly when I needed to claim warranty. Sent email with my problem directly to Italy, recieved fest warranty form, returned it and postman called me next morning that he is comming to pick up my fork. My experience with big M, not to say anthing about flawless performance...

 Thanks marzocchi usa, ... no , I had a good expirience in the past don' t get me wrong... But now as been more difficult , even shop owners in Portugal said that... I've contacted the team in my zone (spain) they had my fork there.... and they asked 400 euros for repairing the ata cardrige of my stilll in warranty period 2012 55 micro. Do you think this is normal? Then I tried to contact italy mtb and tenneco emails to try to get the spares with no replys. Thats why I'm a bit bitter ...

 Marzocchi usa got my fork in the mail today and they have been great to deal with. Answered all my emails both times ive needed to order parts and just recently to get this fork service taken care of. My 2013 888 CR is a really great fork and the customer service exceptional. Next fork I buy when possible will most likely be the 380 C2R2 and I will be looking real hard at this funky named shock for my Rune.

 Dear Marzocchi: You lost a customer when my 26" bike could no longer find a 180mm fork in your lineup. I have been riding 180mm for enduro racing and all-round mountain biking and having a great time at races that are essentially DH courses while watching littler forks noodle their way down the mountain. Am I way faster? Nope. Am I having an absolute blast with no worry of mechanical failure or inadequacy? Yep.

I was going to buy the 180mm version of the new 36 Float for the over 1-pound weight savings but I use the travel adjust of my 2012 Talas 180 way too much so I am waiting for the revamp to hit the Talas 36 for next year. But I sure would love to have an option out there other than Suntour and Fox.

 Yes, Marzocchi has fallen off the planet for us FRiders here in Japan.
I had to discard my roco air because I couldn't get a new seal kit for it.
It was one of my favorite shocks of all time.
Forks too, Marzocchi's ride is unique but awesome.

I have now started riding all SrSuntour forks and shocks as I can purchase any replacement part or seal easily.
Plus the Durolux rear shock is the closest to the Roco I have found, it has the same plush stroke with a bottomless feel.
The forks are awesome too and have kept me happy coming off of the 66 and 55 line!

I sure hope Marzocchi can get its foot hold back in business here in Japan!!
If you need help finding a distributor let me know!
The last distributor was Dia-tech which always did a great job with service and support but for some reason terminated its business!

 Is Marzocchi also working on a new Dirt Jump fork?
  • 2 0
 sort of. We have refined the damper in the existing DJ1 to offer better compression and rebound and we have a new Slope fork based on the 55. it is stock at 120mm but can be dropped to 110 or 100mm

 That rear shock is HOT!

 Yeah....but will it spew oil or will it remain inside after a few rides?
  • 3 0
 any shock can blow up if abused or not taken care of. we will handle any warranty or service issues that may arise. That said, I wouldn't worry about any of our new products. 2014 - forward we are back on track with solid, reliable products. the growing pains are over and we are ready to come back!

 Marzocchi-USA:
An unsolicited comment from a consumer: your product names are very awkward and incredibly confusing. 053 S3C2R? Doesn't exactly roll off your tongue. The fact that it is meant to be paired with the 350 fork is great. But what does 350 refer to? 35mm stanchions? I'd really recommend simplifying. With Fox, its pretty common knowledge that 40/36/34/32 refers to stanchions, but more importantly weight and intended use. And 150/160/170 is travel. Simple.

From a marketing standpoint, its too many letters and numbers that only make sense if you do research. I've had a few of your forks in the past, and liked them. But it was always difficult to know which model was which.

 053 is probably the base name, the "s" is probably sport or speed or something. then 3C is 3 compression settings, 2R is rebound.

Just a guess though

 @jerrytek, I can not agree nor disagree with you but I think you have a VERY valid point.

the S3C2r refer to the action of the shock:
S3 is 3-ride settings, C2 is High and Low speed compression adjustment, R is rebound. I am just happy we didn't add BV to the name for Blow-off Valve.

 I was close. I find names like these make product selection. Rockshox do the same

 You could have added A (Air) and SK (Shock).... and ES (Espresso). Curious to see how long we can make that name ;-)
