Marzocchi launches Bomber Z1 Coil Fork & coil conversion kit

Marzocchi has launched the most advanced coil fork system it has ever made, it says, with the new Bomber Z1 Coil and coil conversion kit.

According to Marzocchi, the Z1 Coil builds on the legacy of the single crown fork which started ‘the revolution’ back in the 90s; the OG Bomber Z1 Coil.

Equipped with a lightweight tempered silicon-chromium steel spring, the new Bomber boasts air assist for progression and bottom-out control. The spring preload is easily adjustable via the top cap, while quiet performance can be achieved via the noise management system.

For those who already have a new Z1 with an air spring but would prefer the coil spring, Marzocchi is offering a coil conversion kit with four choices of spring rate. The coil conversion kit SRP is £154.95, while the spring is priced at £54.95.

The Z1 Coil Fork (SRP £779), alongside the full Marzocchi range, is available exclusively from Silverfish UK. Dealers interested in finding out more about the brand, or becoming a stockist, can view the range at this year’s COREbike show, returning to Whittlebury Hall 26-28 January.
