    Loved my old Shiver, the new one looks and sounds promising but only time and real world situations will tell.

    This is a wicked piece of e-speculation, "...but I wouldn't be surprised to see Marzocchi take it to the next level with a one piece outer leg...". Does he mean a la Maverick?

    I posted about this on the upside down fork thread and think that it is great news. I think that research and development into new products is good despite whether some see it as being necessary or not as it fuels what we see in new products. I'm taking a composites class right now and was just thinking about the feasibility of carbon stanchions the other day for increased stiffness/reduced weight. Apparently I'm not alone...

    Cool model of the shock, I'm guessing from a 3D printer....they're an awesome design tool.

    Indeed... A new set of Fox 40 tubes goes for around $300 and they are aluminum. Comparatively speaking, aluminum is cheap when talking about composites. No matter how you look at it, composites are very expensive for many reasons (material costs, design, lay-up, and 'wow' factor) so I would expect that if and when these are released they will not be cheap.

    Oh man, I remember when the RAC came out. I wanted one so bad. I can't believe that was 11 years ago. Damn I'm getting old.

    marzocchi stuff has always been expensive. when the shivers came out 10 years ago or whatever it was they cost 1200 bucks. this was when you could get a whole dh bike for that much. i think the jr.t back then was only like 500 or something. the shiver was always the top of the line model and i can see them doing that again. they already have 3 models of 888s out so why not put something out there that is better for more expensive. people will buy it and if it really is a game change it will be a have to item on high end race bikes. i am stoked for this. with all the rumors about marzocchi that have been flying around though the years when you see stuff like this its awesome. i love this company and its great to see them pushing the sport they used to dominate again

    I've been on Marzocchi's 2011 66 Evo Ti and 55 Micro Ti, and also a 2010 4X for the last little while, and I've got to say that Marzocchi gear isn't just back, it is on top!
    I like bikes.
