Strength:

Very Great Shocks, Better then all other DJ's. Great for Street, Mountain, Obviously Dirt Jumping, and Downhill.

Weakness:

Not very many weaknesses, just that 100 mm is just a bit to small.

The Price I paid for them is 600$, wich is a bit pricey for shocks, but all-in-all, it was definitley worth it, mine are white, with BOMBER in black, and a graphic design on a part of the shocks, and there is a marzocchi logo below BOMBER.

This is actually for the dirt jumper 4s. Tough, basic, enough adjustment for me. I like that these forks are a matter of spending a few minutes adjusting them and then i haven't had to modify them since. they ride perfectly for my style. Got these second hand but unused for $150 nz so rediculously cheap.

Weakness:

For me there isn't one

Ride them first before buying. They are great for the urban free ride style riding i do where i don't want a soft fork to absorb every little bump but need a fork that still performs well when landing decent size drop offs and jumps. I guess if your expecting a smooth ride these aren't for you.

I totally agree with Jeff. Its a "pogo stick in the mud".
It doesn't have the smooth compression and rebound it should have. I have tried different air pressures and still no change.

Strength:

Trustworthyness...I don't think it will suddenly break

Weakness:

HEAVY!!! Not smooth, doesn't ajdust well(rebound effects preload, dampning) Feels like jumping on a pogo stick in the mud. It really feels like this, a spring in sticky mud.

*sigh* OK, marzocchi makes some damn good forks, so why is this one so crappy? well, i did some research. Apparently, this fork, and a few others, are MADE IN TAIWAN. This may have to o with the fact that this fork has issues, that overall makes it ride terrible.

It rides rough. It seems to take medium bumps by traveling 1-2 inches, and then stopping. It doesn't go much further, even when adjusted, but take a big hit/drop, and it does go further, but feels hard, too hard, and at that rebounds poorly, either slow, or fast, but no adjustment can make it feel right, and it affects the dampning. its either "bouncy" or "muddy". muddy is a very very good word fo this fork, thats what it feels like, jumping a rigid fork into mud.

I can't figure out what is really wrong with this fork, it just doesn't have that smooth, progressive feeling the Z1s have. It acts like your are abusing it, it really does, like someone is going to tell me i'm being to rough on it, or its not "made to take that kind of hit". It just doesn't feel right on small or big jumps,or hits, and its heavy. The full travel can't be used, without setting it to bottom out all the time.

those who give this fork a good review are most likley new to the type of riding this fork is for, or haven't tried a Z1 drop off 2, which is better in every way, despite it not having a rebound adjustment. The dirt jumper 2 is made in italy, I would like to see if it is any better.

Strength:

very stiff, good rebound adjustment, air adjustable.

Weakness:

heavy, although weight isn't an issue to me. tops out like crazy. topping out doesn't affect the performance, but it make it feel like something's loose.

pretty decent fork for what you would pay for it, although it's heavy and tops out. good for beginner to intermediate and for those who don't mind weight.

Strength:

very strong and super stiff. perfect for dirt jumping and urban riding. also good for light downhill tracks.

Weakness:

makes a clink sound when it rebounds

this fork is worth the money, if you are willing to spend a bit more go for the DJ 2 or the rock shox argyle.

Strength:

Very strong. Takes anything I can throw at it.

Weakness:

Heavy. Stantion bolts need to be checked every so often to make sure they are tight.

Great fork for the money. Very strong, but the weight is a downside. I have used this for DJ, Urban, Freeride and even XC (that didnt go to well). I would recomend this fork to anyone getting started, or that is on a budget.

Strength:

Strong,can take quite the beating,plush,air assist,internal preload adjust and external rebound adjust,pinch bolt crown. Useful if you bend you steerer so you dont have to buy a whole new fork! Available in 9mm and 20mm through axle.

Weakness:

Heavy,but only because it is strong!

This fork is strong and will hold up under alot if you dont misuse it and the adjustments are very useful!
