Since Marzocchi recently discontinued their Super T, this is the cheapest entry into dual crown forks. With their skinny 32mm legs, Boxxers are quite flexible as ‘big’ forks go, so you’ll have to get used to turning in a bit harder and longer on fast corners or off-camber sections.
On the plus side, they’re pretty light, really simple to set up and the Motion Control rebound and low speed compression damping stay controlled in most situations.
There are loads of tuning travel/damping options for the Boxxer chassis too, so the Race is a great place to upgrade from. They have a good long term reliability history.
