    Marzocchi Corsa World Cup 1150 grams?

    This seems like it must be a misprint. At 2.5 lbs it's at least a half pound lighter than most of the competition. Has anybody seen one of these yet?

    Supposed to be new for '07.

    In the past Marz has listed weight without steerer tubes. And even then they've been optimistic with their weights.

    Got an older Marathon, and it works great, but isn't a real weenie fork.

    That weight has to be without steerer. What happened to design? That is one ugly fork. That color looks anything but racey. Race parts should look "cool", whatever that might be.

    i've read that they're coming in around 3.1lbs. Which is just about as light as your going to get, save a SID...but that doesn't really count. i like to actually steer by bike.

    I dont know why but that almost looks like a wal-mart fork you would find on a mongoose. We will have to wait to see the real weight.

    3.67 pounds in an 80mm puts it in the same game as the Fox F80RLT. Not really weight weenie-ish at all. But at least with 32mm stanchions it should be as wiggle resistant as the Fox.

    Is it just me, or does that chart seem to imply it is 1670 + 174gr steerer tube?

    Why?

    Why does Marzocchi have to weight their forks without the steertube? Can you choose your own steertube? This seems to be a stupid ploy to get people confused into believing that their forks are actually almost as light as the competititons'.

    And now that I'm all rev'd up: Why does Marzocchi, the former King of Coil, use the absolutely terrible coil with air preload system? It gives a spring rate that makes the fork extend to full lengh during climbing, and dive suddenly and excessively during hard braking. I had a AM2 my my trailbike, and got it completely rebuild with Z1 innards so I could fit another spring and get rid of the terrible air system.


    Ole.
