Marzocchi's Bomber Z2 Returns as an Affordable Trail Fork

Apr 8, 2019 at 4:04
by James Smurthwaite  

The original Marzocchi Z2 was released in 1997 as one of the first hard-hitting suspension forks and, more than 20 years later, Marzocchi has today resurrected the iconic name to bolster its expanding fork line. The updated Z1 was released last year with 36mm stanchions and up to 180mm of travel, aimed at the enduro racers, while this Z2 runs more sprightly 34mm stanchions and tops out at 150mm of travel with an eye on the trail/all-mountain crowd.

Like the Z1, this is more than a simple throwback. The fork has been thoroughly modernized with the ability to fit up to 27.5 x 2.8" or 29 x 2.6" tyres, 37, 44, 51mm fork rake options and travel anywhere from 100 to 150mm. You have rebound and compression settings to tinker with, but as the fork is being released with the strapline "bring simple back", it's clear that Marzocchi are aiming for something that simply works, rather than boggling you with an array of fettling options.
Bomber Z2 Details
• Intended use: trail/ all mountain
• Air sprung, Rail damper
• 34mm stanchions
• 100, 120, 130, 140, 150mm travel options

• Colors: gloss red, matte black
• MSRP: $499 USD
www.marzocchi.com


As for damping, this fork doesn't get the trickle down Fox Grip damper that the Z1 had, but a new Rail damper. We don't yet have any details on this but we're sure we'll learn more soon when Sea Otter starts on Thursday.

The fork is set to retail for $499.99 but there's no official release date yet.

 Really if I'm buying something with a Marzocchi badge I want something coil sprung with an open bath damper, hydraulic bump stops that never let you use full travel ever and an unnerving top out clunk every time you lift up the bars... oh and customer service, after care support - get rid of it, all of it, never answer any phone calls or emails, don't make any spare parts available, this is what I want from a Marzocchi

 Had many, many marzocchi over the years. Would literally service them in the kitchen right before a ride and get them perfectly tuned to my riding style. They were reliable, performed consistently on the big stuff and would keep working forever. You didn't need customer support with marzocchi... you just needed a wrench! Who doesn't miss that squirting open bath feeling and sound... hmmmm yeah!

 @audioshnoll: One problem with Marz was they marketed the same chassis with an array of different dampers that spanned between amazing and awful. You could often get the same fork model with an plush, responsive high-end RC3 damper or a horrendously terrible RCV orifice damper. One letter difference between a world class fork and a budget shit box, and I bet to this day there are people out there who think Marz suck cuz they didn't understand their dumb marketing and bought a bike with a budget Marz.

 If you want a fork that has the smoothest action of anything out there and wallows halfway in its travel, with compression adjusters that simply make suggestions to the damping, get a DVO

 @dthomp325: I rode 09 triple8 rcv's for two years trouble free before I sold them and I can say from my experience they weren't shit box as you describe and were actually way better feeling then my 09 66 rc3 that I had to send in for two rebuilds in less then a year.

 @dthomp325: Indeed, cheaper models, especially those made by Suntour from years 08-09 and after were subpar (to say the least!). However, I've beaten the crap out of a 2005 66 RV (i think), a 2006 66 RC2X and an insane 170mm 2007 66 RC2X which I've had for many years. 10 years later, every ride I get to remind myself of what a decent fork should feel like while riding downhill aboard an airsprung suspension. Too bad weight matters... somehow.

 @audioshnoll: definitely something to be said for the simplicity of the forks. Sure they were heavy, but a damping system made of metal and an oil bath were really what made Zocchi great.
That being said rebuilding my 66SL doppio after almost every weekend at the bike park did get annoying.

 @audioshnoll: I had a few Marzocchi forks, among them, 66RC2X, which at the time, in 2006, was possibly the best performing single crown, long travel fork out there. But then Lyrik and Fox 36 came, over 1 pound lighter with much better damping. Marzocchi forks were diving under braking like a Meth addict after a penny. You could do a ft drop and it wouldn't bottom out. Instead you'd botom it out few meters below when wanting to stop on steep hill. I have very fond memories of my white 66RC2x but wouldn't ride it today. I also had same years 66SL and it was a piece of crap.

What I really love besides the obvious so soft off the top is the lack of harshness anywhere it does not rebound like air does it's a different feeling altogether.

However, the year after, my Giant Reign X came with a Fox 36 and it just couldn't handle big hits so I bought an '07 66 RC2X, and it was just... perfect! Kept it for almost 5 years straight, never been happier on a bike. Than I bought an all mountain rig, stopped wearing a full-face helmets and got dressed in lycra and spandex... Still trying to figure out what happened :\

 @reverend27: how exactly is grip 2 a marzocchi damper? I rode the last 380 before acquisition and it was a noisy divey thing not worth the money. Typical mistaking too soft, underdamped pish for performance. If anything, grip 2 is similar to Manitou intrinsic damper, abandoned in 2007 or something.

Here: Marzocchi damper, the resemblance to Grip2 is amazing! NOOOT Smile

 @WAKIdesigns: first thing I would have done is change the weight of the damper oil.

I can't understand how people pay 1k for a fork and then don't tune for their weight.

 @WAKIdesigns: with you on this currently rocking a 2016 350cr, first ride after taking off my old fox 32's, I couldn't believe how much they dove through their travel, dangerously so, ride anything steep or hit the brakes and you nearly went over the bars, increased air pressure to about 20% sag and fork dive decreased but they were basically rigid forks over any big bumps/rocks, really harsh damping spikes.

After a lot of tweaking, thicker oil better quality oil in the damper, adding 45ml of gear oil to the air chamber, better quality seals, and running 1-2 clicks off max compression damping, its now not a bad fork, holds up well over really rough stuff, still has the occasional surprise divey moment and fairly bad 'chatter' sensitivity which affects front end grip... Have never ridden a single fork from Fox as bad as my Zocchi's were ad stock, woeful crap that should have been left in the past - thankfully mine only cost $340 new, which is more than they were worth until I fixed them
  • + 1
 @ctd07: Likewise, my 350CR's have been the best forks I've ridden (albeit I think they were one of the last as they came with fox branding), but they were off the back of lyrics and Fox. I've virtually left them untouched apart from services, air pressure and a bit of fork spray. Super responsive, agile and compliant. I guess the night and day of 'Zocchi still proves they didn'tt lose their touch before Fox bought them.

 @elliot-20 Well, since 66RC2x, I had Lyrik Uturn, Fox36Van RC2 and Lyrik 2, none of these forks gave me any bigger trouble and 36Van Rc2 was the best fork that I have ever owned. By far. From other forks that I have ridden 2016ish Fox 36 Float RC2 was standing out as well. I am told CC Helm coil and Öhlins RXF36 coil are the same ball park as 36VanRc2. So my list of awesome forks is long and Fox is always in top 3 on it. The only reason I bought Lyrik was that 36 costed 1400€ and Lyrik costed 800€. It is however way beyond my capability to understand how someone can come up with an idea that Fox made Marzocchi worse. Stripping anodizing, underdamped LSC, average rebound.

@ctd07 - I run all of my forks under 20% SAG and most people I ride with too. Some run their DH forks at 15%. Why would you run more?
  • + 1
 @WAKIdesigns: haha try running my forks with less, have fun getting your bones jarred.
Also with negative springs, especially some shocks it seems, you have to run the sag point where the piston meets the negative chamber, as the negative spring is pulling the shock down to this point, if you want to run much less sag, your air pressure has to be so high you'll never get full travel
  • + 0
 @ctd07: not jarred by a tiniest margin. I run just under 20%. I like flying over stuff rather than falling into holes. Run it as hard as I can for stability, as long as I have the minimum desireable front wheel grip. I run a bit more SAG when it is wet. Fox 36 tends to have better plushness to stability ratio than Lyrik so I would run it at 20-22%. There are two prevailing theories - 1. less sag, less compression and 2. more sag, more compression. As far as I know riders like Gwin go for option 1, Danny Hart goes for option 2. If you can brake in right places and load the bike right in the right places - having a plan for staying heavy/ light, the option 1 works
  • + 1
 @reverend27: hmm, that explains why I could never get used to fox. I grew up with Marz (made in italy versions), and quite liked the Lyrik though. Maybe I'll get to like newer foxes, the one's based on the marz damper, lol, sad.

 Most likely a version of the FIT from Fox. As the Z1 is a Fox 36 Performance Elite (GRIP) with cheaper casings, expect the Z2 to be a Fox 34 Performance Elite with the same kind of castings.

 @Ploutre: it exists in 4 models. Factory (Fit4 kashima), Performance Elite (Fit4 Black), Performance (GRIP Black) and rhythm (GRIP Black but uses 6000 series aluminum uppers). Rhythm is OE only that's why it's not listed on their website.

 @millsr4: nailing ducks?
  • + 3
 @Ploutre: the Z1 is basically a rebadged 36 Rhythm that is available OE only. That means GRIP Sweep damper (not the 3 position damper in the Performance forks), 6000 series uppers (which are heavier but reported also be stronger and less prone to CSU creaking, same CSU as the E-bike rated forks I believe).

That the Z2 doesn't get even the basic GRIP damper even is concerning, Fox could have just pulled the GRIP Sweep damper from their 34 Rhythm's. No chance it gets anything related to FiT as GRIP was supposed to be a less costly damper than FiT.

 @Bflutz625: I thought the same until I looked into it further and found that the Z1 has thicker inner stanchions, making the 36 ACS3 incompatible for the Marzocchi
  • + 1
 @pjo39: bummer
  • + 1
 @Bflutz625: No, I actually meant coil with air assist like I have in my old Marzocchi Dirt Jam (cheap OEM Dirt Jumper) forks. It was probably to save costs they only had one coil spring (so no stocks of different spring rates for everyone) and the air would allow you to fine tune it for your weight and preferences. But it also implied that with a low air pressure you could still get a fork that has a supple start and ramps up near the end because that's what air springs do. But it required open bath damping as you have air in one leg and the coil spring in the other. Nothing against this but it seems the industry has moved away from that. After all we all ride reaaaally long Megavalanche type descends every day and really need the consistency that open bath can't give you. DT Swiss currently has coil with air assist in their F 535 forks. I haven't looked into how these work.
  • + 1
 @vinay: ACS has an air bottom out resistor that engages half way into travel and it still keeps your cartridge damper.

 I'm surprised that they went with the red and black to launch Marz seeing as those are the RS colorways...

FOX - Orange

 @SonofBovril: Well, Marzocchi did have the Orange as the anniversary edition. White forks were their special ones and blak on blak was their go-to, with the occasional gunmetal finishes during the later years. I think that FOX should somehow let the Italian flair come out of Marzocchi and hire people who care about the product and not about the sales, as the name already does its job for the latter.

 Seriously though, all these aftermarket suspension companies are offering coil mods for the big brands, why are they not just making Marz a coil version of the Fox forks with a progressive bottom out bumper, seems like a no brainer to me, and leverages the name and heritage of what Marz stood for in the first place.

 I have to say that my Z1 has been the best preforming product I have had in a few years now and I fully expect this option to hit it out of the park in the lighter trail segment. Simple damper and slightly overbuilt may make it a "budget fork" for much of the world market but makes it ideal for the shore.

 All you people screaming budget fork need to go ride on a rs tk 30 and see what a real budget fork is. Just because its more affordable (which is what I see pber gripe about most is wanting more affordable parts) doesn't mean its cheap. Its funny how most of the people bitching here saying its cheap junk basically are probably the ones saying Id buy a DVO if it was cheaper or something along those lines. I for one would love anything related to the Marzocchi brand on my bike because theyve been the true essence of no bullshit mtbing since my youth.
