Marzocchi 320 LCR 29" Fork
Many people synonymize Marzocchi with long travel forks - and for good reason. Marzocchi has been innovating suspension technology on mountain bikes and motorcycles for the past 60 years. While no longer just a gravity orientated brand, Marzocchi has made some giant strides toward the XC racing world. Naturally evolving from the Corsa Superleggera 29" fork, the 320 LCR is a lightweight, ultra smooth, and low maintenance suspension fork featuring Marzocchi's new LCR technology.
Aside from the standard 15mm thru-axle and tapered steer tube, the Marzocchi 320 LCR fork features a low pressure AER system, 32mm aluminum stanchions and includes the newly redesigned LCR lockout remote - making it a top contender for your next XC race machine. The stanchions feature a low-friction hard-anodized Espresso coating that's been infused with Teflon to increase small bump sensitivity and the overall durability of the stanchion surfaces, seals and bushings. The newly redesigned LCR remote lockout lever is now compatible with both Shimano and SRAM cockpit layouts and can be mounted on either side of the handlebars, so it won't get in the way of your dropper post remote.
LCR is a hybrid technology that makes motorcycle suspension comply with XC racing requirements. Thanks to the newly designed Dynamic Bleed Cartridge, the 320 LCR is the ideal combination of open bath and seal cartridge systems - creating a fork that is smooth, reliable, and low maintenance while remaining competitively lightweight. By tuning the knobs on the fork you're able to adjust the low speed compression and rebound and to further tune, by upgrading to a custom shim stack (sold separately), you're able to adjust the high speed rebound allowing the compression can be fully locked out. To safeguard your investment, an internal blow-off valve protects your fork from unexpected impact in case you forget to unlock the fork before taking a big hit.

This with other components has built a great bike but the 320 LCR has really impressed me.
It relatively light, has great dampening/compression adjustments
Its a steal at this price.
Support is provided by Fox.
The lockout cap removal can be a pain in the but due ro the set sxrew being seized.
Fox is sending replacement cap/sxrew.
Unfortunately not much info online for this fork but I suspect tjat due to the transition to Fox and poor marketing is the cauae.
The fork is top notch ans worth allot more

Installation was easy - I watched a couple you tube videos to show how to properly install the remote lockout which was very helpful.
Setup - there are many videos that describe how to set your sag and rebound damping. I found that using the air pressure guide was helpful for me. I used the low end of the range for my weight and that was a good starting point. I played around with the rebound damping until I got it feeling good and it really helped the ride. Finally I am using the compression damping on the top of the fork as an adjustment during riding or at the beginning of a ride. The lockout is easy to engage and disengage however I don't think I will use it much because you don't want it locked unless there are no bumps - perhaps a smooth gravel road or pavement.
This fork is really great on the slow big bumps and on the hard compression roll-offs from steep feature.
JensonUSA was terrific - gave me an instant price match and the great Jenson USA service. This fork is a great value and a great performer that competes with forks that are 2 times more expensive. I am also confident in technical support from Fox in the future since they now own the brand and will support this product with parts and technical advice.
