Bomber Z1 27.5 150 Grip Sweep-Adj Boost Fork
When Marzocchi first released the Bomber Z1 suspension fork it was well ahead of its time. Other forks prioritized weight over performance. The Z1 changed that by being the first to truly focus on improving ride quality and handling. Riders started pushing the limits on more challenging terrain, breathing new life to the sport and building quite a following for Marzocchi. Twenty years later the Z1 is back, reincarnated by Fox Racing Shox and their proven suspension technology. The Bomber Z1 27.5 150 Grip Sweep-Adj Boost Fork is ready for all-mountain excursions and aggressive trail riding, coming in at a price that leaves you with plenty of cash for epic riding trips with your friends.
The Bomber Z1 has 5.9in of travel—well-suited to technical trail riding and arduous backcountry adventures—absorbing rock gardens and choppy terrain with unwavering composure. The travel comes from a FLOAT EVOL air spring. EVOL stands for "extra volume," denoting the increased negative air volume that makes the initial travel more sensitive, resulting in silky-smooth small-bump compliance. The mid-stroke is supportive to keep the fork from diving when you grab the brakes on a tricky descent. As you near the end of the travel the bottom-out progression is smooth, helping to prevent harshness on larger impacts. The air spring's progression can be tuned by adding or removing volume spacers, if needed.
Damping duties are handled by the FIT GRIP damper—a proven design known for durability and consistency. GRIP is a suitable name considering the impressive traction you get from this admirably-sensitive damper. It has uncomplicated adjustments that simplify setup so you can get out riding sooner. There is just one compression dial and one rebound dial. The compression dial combines high and low-speed compression in a sweeping design, meaning it turns from fully open to lockout with no clicks, letting you stop anywhere along the way once the setting feels right.
For aggressive trail riding it's important to have a stiff chassis. Stout 36mm stanchions and bombproof lowers help prevent unwanted flex, ensuring the Bomber Z1 tracks well over rough terrain.
