Curious about coil? It’s no secret coil shocks offer amazing on-trail feel and the Bomber CR provides a plush, planted feel and consistency during long shred sessions. From riders looking to breathe new life into an old ride to customers wanting a new bike that they can set and forget, the Bomber CR delivers. This high-performance yet simple rear shock pairs well with bikes in travel ranges from 130mm to over 200mm. Keeping in step with Marzocchi’s founding philosophies, this new rear shock prioritizes suspension performance, ride quality and durability. Simply set your sag and rebound, and go ride.
PLEASE NOTE: This shock does not come with a spring. See '3 Steps to Buy the Right Shock' tab to add the right spring and remember to keep the size of your shock chosen above handy.
This is a great riding shock. I appreciate the simplicity of setup coming from a complex air shock with HSC,LSC HSR and LSR ajustability. I bought it to try out a coil shock for the first time, and to have a backup when my usual air shock was in for service. The only problem I have is that the spring calculator above doesn't allow for fractions. I used it, rounding down, and ended up buying a 700# spring that is completely useless to me. I used the Fox calculator and experimented with 450#, 500# and 550# as possibilities. I settled in on 500# and am very happy with it. I'm not sure why they don't just link to the Fox calculator. This one is worthless.
I replaced the Monarch air shock on my Evil Insurgent with the Bomber CR, along with a 29" wheel and Bomber Z1 air fork up front. This combination seems to bring out a lot of this bike's potential in loose, steep rooty and rocky conditions. I just raced a local enduro that featured a stage with quite a lot of roots, and the control and traction exceeded my expectations. Definitely a good choice for the money, but a respectable shock even when compared to some more expensive models.
I have never written review but I have to now . When it work is good but it has too many defects . After three rides the shock has disassembled and the lower shock eye came loose and leaked . After warranty service it came back with internal defect . After 5 mm of stroke there is king of rubbing inside . I have send it again to warranty but service did not accepted it. They say it is natural behavior of the shock . I had 10 shocks including 2 fox van RC in 15 years of riding and none of them had this issues . So in two months 2 warranty claims and the shock still doesn't work . What a joke .
Shock seems great but “dtfh” tuning is stiff as a preachers d*^+, I wish you could select a different tune at checkout
Installed the CR on my 2018 Turbo Levo.
You need a Bike Yoke for the install.
I installed a 650 lb spring and I weigh 180 lbs, sag seems about right.
So far I have been on 4 rides with it and I am very happy.
Previous shock was a Fox DPS and this really smoothed out my ride on the roots.
