    Unbelievable.....marz Z-1 Lite

    So I have been up in SLO riding a few trails and I want to say the Z-1 lite has really impressed me.......on high speed runs it has been flawless.....couldn't ask for more (well I wish I had the Recoil) ......welll anyway on some really rocky tech sections with 1 to 2 foot drops the fork impressed me so much that I thought of takking off the Shiver and running this fork for races really appeals to me


    If you are up for freeriding and pedal up and down the trails you might want to look into the this fork

    BTW ....it impressed me so much.....I might get the 888 lite that comes out in 07


    mad props to Marz

    I am very scared of some one the words you have just said... particularly second line from the bottom...

    But might I add I used the Z-1 Freeride with ETA (The 2006) and it is nice!

    Finally the geezer realizes there's more to riding than just a 40 lb. DH bike.

    Mine is gone to Marz for some work and I miss it so much it pained me to not call and check on it this week. Maybe Monday. It is the perfect trail fork.

    yeah the 888 is very much a reality..............waiting for the 07's


    I even did a 3 foot drop with the ETA on and it was still smooth

    do you think that this fork will hold up to about 15 ft. drops? I am considering getting one of these or the 66rc2x for my bullit.

    Coil?

    I thought the Z1 Light has a coil in one leg and air in the other...a hybrid. Isn't that the case? I've turned two '04 Z150SL models into hybrids, air/coil, and they work awesomely.

    You are correct.

    At first I was thinking it was an all air fork, but I was mistaken.

    I talked to Marz and mine is heading back this week with new uppers under warranty. There was an awful creak that was driving me mad. I thought I was riding a Fox for a minute.
