New Marzocchi Bomber CR released

Marzocchi is back in the shock market with the all new Bomber CR.

It’s no secret coil shocks can offer amazing performance, especially over terrain with smaller more frequent bumps. But with the extensive range and impressive technology of modern air shocks, their twisted sisters have been somewhat overlooked.

The Bomber CR intends to change that perception, with Marzocchi claiming it provides a plush, planted feel and consistency during long shred sessions. For riders looking to revive their old ride or those wanting a new bike that they can set and forget, the Bomber looks to deliver.

It offers adjustability through spring rate, spring preload, external low-speed compression and rebound adjustments. Internally, Bomber CR sports a shim-based damping design, which allows further high-level tuning.

In this day and age, where the race to the technological top seems to dominate the MTB market, it's refreshing to see products like the Bomber CR that enhances the bike you have at a reasonable price (approx. $450), and will be available in standard, metric and trunnion sizes.

Look out for MBA's comprehensive trail test review of the new Marzocchi Bomber CR in the May-Jun-Jul issue of the mag, on stands mid-April.
