Not just a gravity oriented brand, Marzocchi is focused on pure performance, no matter the intended use. They can go big on Marathon or on XC races too.

AER: Air that makes you fly. The AER cartridge performs better than any other system on the market. Countless reviews and tests can proof that this is the way to go! The low pressure required keeps the seals sliding smoothly on the surface with no friction at all. The negative spring offers plushness you would expect from a coil system right from the beginning of the stroke. Furthermore, the fixed piston in the closed cartridge helps to reduce weight since less oil is needed in the entire system.
LR - Lockout and rebound: The perfect solution for all the riders that loves to climb. Low speed rebound control combined with an efficient compression lock out is the best choice for cross country and all mountain enthusiasts. The new redesigned remote, compatible as an optional upgrade, gives even more speed to you control.
