Mountain 44 fork tweaked to accommodate larger wheel

Marzocchi twenty niners back in the UK

Marzocchi is to bring a 29-inch wheel specific fork to market having only once before manufactured and OEM model nearly eight years ago.

The fork is to be based around the current 44 suspension model. Using Marzocchi’s top of the line closed cartridge, the TST Micro damper features adjustable rebound, lock out and lock out threshold.

Completely reengineered for 2011, the new low pressure ‘AER’ air system offers coil-alike plushness with its Titanium negative spring. Developed from the 888, the VA adjuster (variable air) lets the rider simply dial in your desired compression curve on the trail.

Fork travel is 120mm out of the box but can be adjusted to 100mm or 140mm by simply adding or removing spacers, making the 44 series the only 140mm travel 29-inch fork on the market.

Having produced just one 29er specific fork for Gary Fisher back in 2002, the revamped 44 will now arrive in stock with Windwave from October.
