Pushing the limits of what a single-crown mountain bike fork could (or should) do, the new Marzocchi Super Z is available with up to 190mm travel. It also gets the impressive new GRIP X damper from its Fox siblings, and made its unofficial debut at this year’s Red Bull Rampage. So, it’s got the goods…

Marzocchi says it’s basically a double-crown fork in a single-crown package. It has 38mm stanchions and fits on any modern mountain bike with rear travel that can keep up.

Thanks to an ultra-stiff crown and “M”-shaped arch on the lowers, it’s the strongest fork they’ve ever made. They say it’s also the most affordable premium fork on the market, coming in at just $999 ($1339CAD / €1289)

The GRIP X damper helps with that premium qualifier, delivering their new pressure balanced compression damping. Compared to what’s on the Fox forks it’s a bit simpler – there’s no indicator nub on the High Speed Compression dial. But it still has the “firm mode” for climbing, and it offers the most adjustment of any other Marzocchi fork.

It also gets the updated bushings (like the 2025 Fox forks), with oil bypass channels allowing seamless bushing surfaces for smoother travel. Bleeder ports on the back of the legs let you equalize pressure in the lowers when shuttling (or climbing) or descending across big swings in altitude.

As per the diagram above, I’ve never heard of a 230mm rotor used… Maybe they meant 223mm? Aside: a buddy just got a Marz coil fork from Jenson for $250 and it feels pretty good.
