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 way back in the ‘90s – the O.G. Bomber Z1 Coil. Starting with the stout and proven 36mm chassis of the modern day Bomber Z1, the new Z1 Coil retains the renowned Grip damper but swaps out the air spring assembly for the most advanced coil spring system Marzocchi has ever made. At the heart of this new coil system is an ultra-lightweight tempered silicon-chromium steel spring (available in 4 spring rates to suit a wide range of riders) coupled with a noise management system for near silent performance, an integrated air assist for progressivity and bottom out control, and an external preload adjuster to dial in sag and firmness off the top. Travel can easily be changed in 10mm increments from 150-180mm (depending on wheel size) via included reconfigurable internal spacers.
My first bike since having a spinal fusion and giving up riding altogether in 15 years. I put the Z1 Coil on a slack hardtail and man I fear the confidence that that fork inspires, I have nothing but positive things to say, simple solid and plush.. if you could float your grandmas caddy onto the rails of a rollercoaster you'd have it..
2 weeks of COVID friendly riding on my Z1 coil and so far it is amazing. Super smooth, very quite for a coil, and confidence inspiring. Riding has consisted of urban jibs, jumps, and other shenanigans. Really looking forward to some real trail time and feel like this will be even more impressive!
very plush shock that is excellent for enduro style riding, more active than air shocks
