Marzocchi Fork Updates For 2012

For the 2012 model year, Marzocchi is introducing a brand new hydraulic travel adjust system, dubbed Switch TA on their 55 and 44 models.

Marzocchi say this will deliver a travel adjust system that does not affect the damping. The optional travel change of 40mm (on the 55 series) or 30mm (on the 44 series), won"t make you break a sweat riding the steepest climbs and most technical switch backs… sounds pretty good eh?

The basic idea behind the system has been around for a while, in 2001, Marzocchi developed, ECC "Extension Climb Control" which was later updated with the successful, ETA "Extension Travel Adjust" and the latest update means a rider can reduce travel to enhance climbing, but it will not compromise your ride and the ability to soak up a rough trail… I'm tempted to say enough with the fucking acronyms, but alas Marzocchi is not, so say hello to the Switch TA… a partial acronym at best.

The Switch TA and has been developed from scratch as a hydraulic
system, and has removed issues with air pressure compromising the solution. With one simple switch of a knob, you can change the parameters of your mountain biking experience by exactly the change you expect – precise to the millimetre. The switch is a simple on/off, so you don't have to fiddle around with knobs.

Switch TA differs from other travel adjust systems because the fork automatically re-extends without pulling back up on the bars. It looks pretty easy and simple while still allowing for some buttery smooth travel in both the reduced or extended
