Marzocchi launches Bomber Z1 coil fork and coil conversion kit

Marzocchi has launched the Bomber Z1 coil fork and coil conversion kit.

“As terrain and riding styles have got rowdier and rowdier, and bikes have got more and more capable, the need for suspension that feels buttery and bottomless has never been greater,” said a statement. “The industry has fondly embraced recent trends towards coil-sprung rear shocks yet none of the major players have stepped forth with a complete coil fork system. Up until now, that is.

“Riders have been asking for it, Marzocchi heard the call and has proudly delivered. The new Z1 Coil builds on the legacy of the single crown fork that started the revolution all the way back in the ‘90s – the O.G. Bomber Z1 coil. The new Bomber Z1 coil delivers the same no-nonsense, super dependable, great feeling suspension that riders have come to expect from Marzocchi over the years.”

Features include: Marzocchi Bomber ride feel and durability, light-weight tempered silicon-chromium steel spring, air assist for progressivity/bottom-out control, spring preload easily adjustable via top cap, and noise management system for quiet performance.
