The days of the super heavy dirt jump fork are long gone. Instead, thanks to Marzocchi’s rebirth at the hands of Fox, the Bomber DJ is back. Borrowing heavily from the longer travel Bomber Z1, the new DJ claims to be super stiff and impressively light.
Like the Z1, the DJ uses the same 36mm chassis – only stepped down to a fixed 100mm travel package.
Built with a 37mm offset, the fork is still designed around 26″ wheels with a short crown height to keep the front end low.
Sold in 20 x 110 non-boost spacing, there are also adapters available for a 15 x 100mm thru axle.
Offered only with a 1.5″ tapered steerer, the EVOL air spring fork includes a GRIP damper to control the compression setting.
Offered in Gloss Red or Matte black, the fork has a claimed weight of just 2095g (4.6lb), which in the context of DJ forks, is pretty light. Priced at $699, the thru axle adapter is available for $60.
