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.
Open Bath Marzocchi have always been advocates of the open bath system as it has many advantages over a closed damper, in fact I would go as far to say that the only negative this design has is ultimately its biggest positive. Since suspension forks need to rapidly telescope, moving up and down thousands of times a ride, bushings should be coated in a bath of oil allowing friction free movement. The only deign that truly accomplishes stiction-less performance is Marzocchi’s proven "Open Bath" technology.
Since oil completely bathes the internal bushings, seals and cartridges all the moving parts glide smoothly; this eliminates friction that causes forks to feel harsh and unresponsive.
Because of the larger oil volume it takes longer for the oil to get dirty, which in turn reduces seal and bushing wear. The higher oil volume keeps temperatures under control. Closed cartridges (a rear shocks for example) work very hard in confined spaces which creates friction which in turn causes heat therefore this heat causes damping fade, so a higher volume of oil will give a more consistent level of performance over extended runs.
Lastly the performance remains at a consistently higher level for longer. With low oil/ closed systems the performance drop can be huge if the fork isn’t correctly maintained. This can also contribute to worn stanchions as the fork dries out.
Rebound Valve The RV (Rebound Valve) pumping element is the evolution of the well proven SSVF Open Bath system. This system controls the rebound speed of the fork. If this correctly adjusted you can keep the wheel in contact with the soil in all riding conditions.
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.
