Marzocchi 55 Micro Switch Tapered Suspension Forks 2013 -
Manufactured in Marzocchis new in-house factory in Tawian so that all forks can be 100% QC checked. The Open bath oil design gives a plush performance and long lasting internals. The use of high quality seals for long service intervals with zero day to day maintenance or fuss.
TST Micro To ensure the forks ideal performance, it is key to keep oil and air completely separate. We were the first to introduce a bladder system on a mountain bike cartridge which is a design taken from motocross technology. The bladder can expand when the shaft goes inside without any air getting in. With the slightly redesigned TST Micro is the latest step in a forward evolution of our 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 with any riding style. Lockout is activated quick and easy to not hold you back from your uphill adventure.
Switch TA The hydraulic travel adjust system is available on the 55 mountain bike fork models gives you the option to change travel by 40mm maximising the comfort level any terrain while having no effect on 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 we later updated with the widely successful ETA Extension Travel Adjust.
With our systems we can boast to have been the first to offer climbing specific travel reduction systems that reduce axle to crown length making steeper climbs much easier and more comfortable.
Based on the same motivation that first had us develop the ECC system back in 2001, we have perfected the idea in the Switch TA and turned it into an hydraulic system. With one simple switch of a knob, you can fundamentally change the parameters of your fork by exactly the change you expect precise to the millimeter.
Switch TA uniquely differs from other travel adjust systems because the fork automatically re-extends without pulling back up on the bars. Its 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,and tested to make it tough and reliable, Switch TA lets you switch easily between travel options.
Nickel coated tapered stanchions All forks with the new nickel coating treatment will see improvements in their smoothness and adds a harder layer to the alloy surface making it more resilient against accidental damage. While the internal tapered profile design allows a consistent weight reduction in comparison with the previous models equivalent stanchions, without losing out on stiffness and resistance
New Fitted & Slotted Bushing The all new Fitted and Slotted Bushings design features vertical slot for oil flow and lubrication. The fitted design process forms itself to the internal casting machine seat. The goal is to have the best, most supple feel between the stanchions and the bushing.
3 Year warranty without any servicing conditions service your fork as and when you feel necessary. Fit and forget reliability.
