Technologies:

  • Switch TA: Marzocchi's hydraulic travel adjust system is available on 55 and 44 mountain bike fork models. The optional travel change of 40mm (on the 55 series) or 30mm (on the 44 series), maximises the comfort level on any terrain with a travel adjust system that does not affect the damping system. The basic idea behind the system has been around for a while: In 2001, Marzocchi first developed ECC (Extension Climb Control) which they later updated with the widely successful (Extension Travel Adjust). With their systems they can boast to have been the first to offer climbing specific travel reduction systems that reduce axle to crown length making steep climbs much easier and more comfortable. Since 2012, they have closed our proven AER system into a cartridge and have added in the upper part and introduced a hydraulic travel adjust system. The fork is optimised to smoothly adapt to any terrain without any effort from the rider .This idea has been perfected in the Switch TA. With one simple switch of a knob, you can fundamentally change the parameters of your mountain biking experience by exactly the change you expect precise to the millimetre. Switch TA uniquely differs from other travel adjust systems because the mountain bike fork automatically re-extends without pulling back up on the bars. It's easy and simple while still allowing for buttery smooth travel in both the reduced or extended settings, right from the beginning of the travel. Years in the making, tested, tough and reliable, Switch TA lets you switch easily between travel options.
  • TST Micro: To ensure a forks ideal performance, it is key to keep oil and air completely separate. Marzocchi were the first to introduce a bladder system on a mountain bike cartridge; a design taken from motocross technology. The bladder can inflate to expand when the shaft goes inside without any air getting in. Slightly redesigned to reach perfection, the TST Micro is the latest step in a forward evolution of the closed cartridge hydraulic system. The red knob on the lower part of the fork leg adjusts rebound; the black top lever activates the Micro system controlling compression. The Micro adjustment located in the middle of the top left knob sets the threshold valve in order to offer maximum traction and control on any terrain and combining it with any riding style. Lockout is activated quick and easy to not hold you back from your uphill adventure.
  • Nickel coating: Nickel Marzocchi Race Coating. Hard anodized, low friction race coating with Teflon impregnation increases small bump sensitivity and overall durability of all sliding parts (stanchion surface, seals, bushings).
