Strength:

Light, stiff, extremely supple, tunable.

Weakness:

Ridiculous warnings all through the manual.

This fork is outstanding. The most supple fork I've ever owned. It's extremely tunable and very light. Adjuustable lockout is good. It can either be a full lockout, or just have it stiffen up to fork to your liking when you need.

The best part is that you can get all this high end performance for under the price of many inferior forks from other brands. Marzocchi has never been a brand that you find on complete bikes, but I hardly see them at all any more. I hope they keep making this fork, they've done a super job.

The only downside is the laughable instruction manual information on the Corsa. There's actually a section in the manual that says "warning these forks are only intended to be used on the following terrain" All other forks in the Marz lineup have a checked box in at least one category of riding, XC/Trail, Enduro, Jumping, DH, etc. The Corsa has zero checks... so, warning, this Fork is only designed to be used on... nothing.

I know it's all legal department BS, but come on Marzocchi. Grow some Italian hair on your chest, smoke a cigarette and man the #$%! up. I've hammered this fork through rocky harsh trails that are as nasty as they come, and it has been rock solid.

I'd give it 5/5 stars, but the lingo in the manual will always cast a shadow of doubt in the back of my mind.

Strength:

Weight, looks, build quality, stiffness

Weakness:

Hmmmm. I will update when if I find a weakness

Installed on a 12 RIP 9. Had it adjusted to 120. The fork is sooooo supple and tuneable Matches the rear suspension of the RIP perfectly. Once tuned it is set and forget. Easy to make changes to match the trail via the TST lever. The Carbon crown is beautiful and rigid.. This is a top contender in the 29er field. No problems.
