    Looks like limited line up compared to 2012.

    Less quantity, maybe they are focusing the effort on quality and innovation.

    Hope that's it and this isn't a sign of them slowly exiting the bike market.

    I've been waiting forever for this. But I thought they were going with darker stanchions? It looks like they only did it with their lower end models.

    Ya I've heard they are dropping the 66 stuff cause the demand for the 55 is so high, and they are very similar forks at the end of the day. The 66 is really just heavier and taller.

    That can't be right. Where's the all-mountain XC forks and the 29er forks? If thats
    the real deal, they are dealing themselves out of the market. The Corsa is out of the
    price range for most XC folks and remember bike brands are still selling loads of 29ers.

    I thought maybe they would introduce a nice mid range 650b fork with 15mm or 20mm qr

    ...and a h3ll of a lot stiffer.... 35 vs 38mm

    May not mean much to the little guys, but us Clydes - we do care.
    I just bought a 66 for Gravity days, as my Lyric DH 170 is not enough fork as it turns into a bit of a noodle when the speed gets high and the ground gets gnarly. The 66 is rock solid where the Lyric is flexing.

    I would have thought they would have gone to 2 forks per model - entry and full feature, and kept the line a bit fuller. By the pix, there are 4 - 55 models. I'm wondering if the pix are a bit short of a full product line??

    I hope they come out with something soon. I am looking for a dual crown right now and BTI pulled the EVO ti from their website and don't have stock for the others.

    They've been out of stock on the 2011 888 Ti for several months now.

    Love both my 66's, it'd be a shame to see that line go.

    Nah, not really. I've hit plenty of 10+ foot step downs and 30+ foot gaps on a 35mm single crown. I'm about 220 or so. The stiffest possible fork is not always the best. The only reason the 888's are 38mm instead of 35 is marketing.

    at the end of the day...the "thinkers and innovators" behind Marzocchi left and are starting a new company..This is to get away from dumb corporate owned of a small great company(Tenecco of Marz)....some great things are around the corner

    um i think it is safe to say Marz. is dust. The guys that actually developed anything worth riding on are gone. So yeah...can wait on them and have Suntour make your fork like all the past Marz since they left Italian manufacturing. Go Suntour!!!!! That is some bad a$$ $hit!

    We live in an exciting time. I don't think DVO will have any legitimate production volumes for 12 months though probably. At least I hope they won't. Otherwise they aren't doing enough testing.

    I think that it is now official that 2013 lineup is limited to models mentioned (pictures) here:
    Marzocchi 2013: ein kleiner Vorgeschmack auf das kommende Jahr

    No more 66 forks. Only one 44 model, which is Micro Switch TA. No more cheaper Marathon XC forks.

    well, that makes my decision a lot easier. I was seriously looking at a 66 for my upcoming 7" build, but if they're going to axe it, my guess is that parts and tech support for it will be tapering off rapidly as well. That's a shame. I had heard so many great things about the 66. Looks like it'll be a cage match between the Fox and Totem for my bike. Here's hoping that DVO will be able to produce suspension that works as well as the old Marz stuff did.

    I had contacted Marzz a couple weeks ago about having the 66s for the new lineup and they said yes but now seeing this its confusing ... I have heard lots of good things about the 66 myself and was in the boat to give it a go and try it out ... Im in no rush with my build but i would like to start my parts list soon... I dont know if DVO will have products out in time ... Who knows

    I loved my 01 Shiver, and my 04 and 06 888's, just glad I never had some nightmares other people had. I guess we'll have to wait and see what will be comin' down the pike in the future from Marzocchi and how they hold up, also it'll be interesting to see what Bryson and the other former Marz guys bring to the table with their new venture.

    I currently have a Marazocchi 2009 170mm travel.on my Syren. I have blown the cartridge x3 (thats every year I've had it) and sent it back each time for warranty. Its now leaking oil but I'll ride it until it goes again (I have a Fox backup)

    Once it goes I'll take my chances and send it to Marazocchi but I'm not sure it they will warranty it again.

    They have plenty of 66's still in stock. They are legally bound to provide parts and service for them for 3 years. I think you'll be fine if you get one. I'd still just recommend a 55. That's what I'm rocking on my 7" mini DH bike.

    DVO will likely make a 66'esq fork

    Not much here on 6" forks, and the article was published at the end of Feb, but:
