Italian suspension manufacturer Marzocchi, taken over by Fox, has something new in the luggage: an air shock absorber with asymmetrical reservoir, available in various installation sizes for dirt and downhill bikes. Its special appearance guarantees better access to the compression adjuster and, thanks to its higher volume, it should ensure complete and consistent performance, even on very long descents. All information is here!
Marzocchi Bomber Air MTB shock absorber: info and prices
Marzocchi’s suspension specialists not only knew how to build suspension after the takeover by Fox Racing Shox, but the know-how and engineering of the Californian suspension giant definitely revived the Italian brand. Now a new air damper is coming to the market and surprises with a somewhat idiosyncratic look. Because the damper tank is not in line with the damper body, but is angled asymmetrically. This should help for better frame adjustment or better access to compression adjustment.

The slightly larger shock reservoir, with its larger volume and higher oil flow, should ensure consistent performance even on very long descents and thus give you a lot of confidence on the trail. According to Marzocchi, the so-called Sweep Adjust compression adjuster eliminates any adjustment stress and allows for easy adjustment and adjustment on the trail. Access to the air valve has also been optimized through the selected position, so that the air supply can take place even without hitting the damper frame or housing.
The new Marzocchi Bomber Air MTB shock absorber is available in a variety of installation lengths, making it suitable for all types of bikes. Whether it’s a cross, trail, enduro or downhill bike, the Bomber Air should convince with its durability and value for money. The MTB shock is available with 40 to 75mm travel in a metric or trunnion configuration for € 639. In terms of price, the shock can compete with the new RockShox RC2T 2023 – it has yet to be proven whether performance is at the same level.
