    2012 Marzocchi - 66 RC3 Evo Titanium - 888 RC3 Evo Titanium V2

    From Pinkbike




    888 RC3 EVO Titanium V.2 details:

    - Travel: 200mm
    - Left leg: RC3 EVO (Rebound piston V.2 (shimmed i believe), low speed compression adjust, high speed compression shim stack valve, volume adjust)
    - Right leg: Coil spring preload
    - Spring: 1-side titanium
    -Casting: Magnesium with 20mm axle
    - Stanchion: 38mm nickel treatment tapered
    - Steer tube: Aluminum
    - Disc brake: 8'' PM (max disc 230mm)
    - Weight: 2990g 20mm axle included
    - Options: Direct mount stem

    We’re particularly proud of our DH flagship, the 888 RC3 EVO TITANIUM. And once you’ve tried it, you’ll know why. We’ve saved weight wherever we could and the result is the lightest coil DH fork in the market! The 888 RC3 EVO TI is only 200g heavier than the lightest air DH forks in the market while offering all the advantages of a coil: stability, reliability and durability and no stress. The upper crown comes with a direct mount feature. We listened closely to our pro riders on the World Cup circuit and were able to tweak our mountain bike forks to perfection with their help and feedback. Speaking of tweaking; the brand new compression piston of this particular fork comes with the option to change shims allowing you to customise your fork to suit your needs. You can really make this fork your own; not approximately, but precisely suited to your needs. For the freeriders among you, the 66 RC3 EVO TITANIUM also offers all these advantages with a suspension that is specifically tuned to your freeriding needs.


    66 RC3 EVO Titanium details

    - Travel: 180mm
    - Left leg: RC3 EVO (Air preload, rebound, low speed compression adjust, high speed compression shim stack valve)
    - Right leg: Coil spring preload
    - Spring: 1-side titanium
    - Casting: Magnesium with QR20 axle
    - Stanchion: 38mm nickel treatment tapered
    - Steer tube: Aluminum
    - Disc brake: 8'' PM (max disc 230mm)
    - Weight: 2840g QR20 axle included
    - Options: 1 1/8'', 1.5'' and tapered steer

    From the dead to the top in 4 years, i seriously think that the WC circuit will soon have a 888 on a world champ bike, these 888's really do look set to take down the 40 and boxxer, and i anit just saying that as a Marz fan, time shall tell!

    So...are the LSC and HSC independently adjustable (externally)? Or is the HSC only adjustable via shim changes?

    you could use the lowers from a 66 with it's QR20 system and mix and match the fork

    I wonder if the listed weight is accurate for the 2012 Evo Ti. 2011's were listed at 6.59 lbs too but came in at around 7.

    That's just DUMB. One of the most important adjustments is not easily available. I'll stick with my Boxxer.

    It is smoother than the Ti. Same price as last year (same with the Ti) it comes with color matching crowns too, same tapered stanchions, and I think the same Ti hardware as well.

    A properly shimmed HSC stack will work better than a adjuster, i believe its the same system on the AVY carts, and everyone pretty much raves about them

    The gold stanchions are available as part of their works package. Not stock though. Way too expensive.

    Do you know where I can get more information about their works package? Can't seem to find any information about it on their website.

    What does the 'works' package entail?

    Call them. They are usually very helpful. I'm not sure, but the works package usually includes some tuning, and some special sauce for the seals and damping oil in addition to other things.

    But ya, that gold stanchion treatment is something that's done state-side and in small quantities. Their cost on it is not cheap. The price they charge is very reasonable.

    call and ask for them.

    and as Gemini said, the Works tune usually includes custom valving, teflon additive in the oil along w/ varying oil heights, a fine grease in place of the foam rings and honed bushings. its 100% worth it

    I'm pretty sure the listed weight is without the stem.

    its not like the high speed adjustment on the boxxer changes the hsc damping on the boxxer, it just changes where it blows off. the adjuster on the 888 changes lsc and the knee where the hsc blows off together, so in essence it is adjustable. it is not just a lsc adjuster.
