Well, shit. I guess if I want a new 55, or 350 or whatever it'll be called, I'll have to make the leap to 650b… The upcoming 2014 Marzocchi stuff looks great, though.
35mm-diameter enduro chassis
Unfortunately, Marzocchi didn't have prototypes available to show us but did say that a new enduro-focused platform is on the way, too. The new forks will be built around 35mm-diameter, aluminum upper tubes and will be offered exclusively for use with 27.5in (650b) wheels.
Travel will range from 140mm to 160mm, and the DBC dampers will be set at the factory with a softer tune than the ones in Marzocchi's more cross-country oriented forks.
Target weight for the top model is around 1,800g (3.97lb) and pricing is expected to be about US$1,000.
Ride, don't slide.
