Marzocchi unveil all-new Bomber DJ fork

Marzocchi are well known for their stylish forks and they've delivered yet again in the form of the Bomber DJ. 

The new suspension set-up caters for those with 26” wheels in addition to the 36mm chassis shared by its sibling, the Bomber Z1. But it’s the bright red paint job that will likely capture riders’ attention first up. 

But aside from standing out ‘bombing’ down singletrack, what does the Bomber DJ actually offer?

Welcome to the family 

The Bomber DJ the same 36mm chassis as the Z1, but in a dedicated 26” wheel configuration. It comes complete with a 20x110mm axle for increased stiffness. It also means it is fully compatible existing DJ and DH front hub spacing standards. Those with 15x100mm front hub spacing will be taken care of courtesy of a little conversion kit. 

That’s not all that’s similar to the Z1 with the same GRIP damper also present. Thats paired with an EVOL air spring to give you control over your ride.

It was a long time coming but the inaugural Mudgee Classic finally became a reality on the weekend with more than 2000 riders lapping up the major cycling event.
