 It leeks air from some where out of the ata.
Changed all the seals and even the air valve but still leeked.
The good side is its a very slow leek and only loses about 20psi after about 3 hours of riding.
Other than that is very smooth and strong.
The tst is weird because its just makes it hard but for jumping a little feels very firm
the rebound is very smooth and overall the fork rides very light and livly.
I was using a 66 ata but this feel just as good other than the loss in travel but for my bottle rocket it fits great.

for someone wanting a strong very adjustable fork for less cash its great.
But make sure you have the knowhow to fix it when it feels bad.
for example the tst stop working so opened it up cleaned it and relized there was not enough oil in the chamber.
added new oil with a good level and it fills great.
All-in-all great inexpensive fork.

 They are quite heavy forks, but the performance is great, I would even go as far as to compare them to a totem or a 36. The downside of them is that they are less reliable, mine have been back to the shop countless times, but this is ok as you get a long 3 year warranty in the UK.

 This fork is great you can change the travel so its better for DJ'ing or you can rase it to its full travel for light freeride style

 I like how these forks feel DAMN solid. Good for clubbing infants and unbeleivers across the head with. Also excellent for trail rides, and excels at downhill.

Marzocchi MTB 55 Ata (MSRP $599) — "Marzocchi’s built the ultimate all-around performer. It’s more than just an all-mountain fork. This is the fork for uphills, downhills and even light freeride. Just point it and it will go. The 55 series has as much technology as a NASA rocket and it’s probably just as fast."

Travel - refers to the distance the wheel can move in respect to the frame. Typically measured in millimeters, most forks range from 80 to 203 mm of travel
Spring Coil
Crown Single
Rebound Yes
Rebound - is how quick your fork returns to a fully extended position after being compressed. Almost all after-market forks feature external rebound adjustment for easy fine tuning.
Stanchion material 35mm Alloy Stanchions
Steer Tube 1.125
Damping Tst2
Damping - The process of absorbing the energy of impacts transmitted through the forks or rear shock during the compression stroke, and absorbing the energy of the spring during the rebound stroke.
DropOut Options 20mm
Compression Lock Out, Compression
Compression - This is the damping circuit that absorbs the compression energy force on the damper. Compression damping is used to adjust how quickly a fork or rear shock compresses when hitting a bump, and is adjustable on some products. When compression damping is too soft, this condition allows most of the available travel to be used without attaining control of the wheel. When it's adjusted too firmly, the wheel will jump or "dance" about when hitting small bumps, again failing to gain control of the wheel.
