Marzocchi has revealed details of its Corsa Super Leggera, a from the ground up design, which the firm says is its 'lightest for a generation' at just 1,490 grams.

Marzocchi spent a whole year and looked at every detail, analyzed it via FEA and FEM and the result are parts that are specifically designed, gram-for-gram to deliver optimized performance.

The result is a 1,490 gram open bath purpose built race fork with all the bells and whistles and 100% durability.

Completely re-engineered, the 2011 Air system is designed to out-perform all other air systems on the market with coil-alike plushness. The low pressure system keeps the seals sliding smoothly on the stanchions avoiding any friction. Plus, the fixed piston in the closed cartridge helps to reduce weight thanks to the less oil quantity needed in the complete system.

Slightly redesigned to reach perfection the TST Micro tech within is the greatest evolution of Marzochhi's closed cartridge hydraulic system. The red knob on the lower part of the fork leg allows adjusting the rebound, the black top black lever activates the Micro system controlling the compression.

The Micro adjustment located in the middle of the top left knob sets the threshold valve in order to offer the maximum traction and control on any terrain and combining it with any riding style. Lockout is activated by turning the Micro knob completely to the closed position, then shifting the black lever clockwise or shifting on the remote control to the lock position.

The Super Leggera arrives with Windwave in July and will retail for £569.95, complete with a three year warranty.
