Marzocchi Says Bomber Purple is the New Black 3

A nod to the past gives these exclusive suspension bits a purple makeover.

Marzocchi Says Bomber Purple is the New Black

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. Beginning on Monday, October 21st, 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.
