New Product Discovery: Marzocchi’s Purple Bomber Fork

Marzocchi’s Purple Bomber Fork

Product information provided by Marzocchi

Okay, in this case, purple may more accurately be the new red but we needed a catchy headline, so hey. If you really want to get technical, purple isn’t the new anything – Marzocchi forks have donned a plum hue beginning with the XC400 fork in the early ’90s and carrying through to the fabled 55 RC3 Ti, and DJ1, to name a few. So really, this is just the latest chapter in Marzocchi’s long – and colorful – history.

It’s October and in the mountain bike world, that means Red Bull Rampage, the most iconic freeride event of the year. Marzocchi riders have been Rampage frontrunners ever since the godfather, Wade Simmons won the very first edition in 2001. In an ode to Marzocchi’s heritage, all team riders will be running custom Bomber Purple suspension as they take to the course. Look for Tyler McCaul, Reed Boggs, DJ Brandt, Thomas Genon, and Tom van Steenbergen to be on purple Bomber 58 forks and CR shocks as they continue to write out Marzocchi’s legacy on the beautifully treacherous cliff faces of the Southern Utah desert.

Please note that there are no plans to sell Bomber Purple suspension components at this time but if enough interest is garnered then perhaps that could change….
