If you're looking to increase or decrease the travel in your 2018+ Fox Float 36 Rhythm or Marzocchi Bomber Z1 fork, then just snag an air shaft and swap it out in your fork!
The Fox/Marzocchi Air Shaft for 36 Rhythm/Bomber Z1 fits all models of Fox 36 Rhythm and 2018 +Marzocchi Bomber Z1 forks. Fox currently owns and manufactures Marzocchi products, and the Fox 36 Rhythm shares the same chassis specs as the Marzocchi Bomber Z1.
This air shaft is NOT compatible with any other models of Fox or Marzocchi forks.
Below is the installation procedure we follow in our shop:
You do not need to pay any attention to your damper if you are decreasing the travel to more than what it is now, because the damper will just compress to accomodate for the decreased travel. Yes, you can even decrease your 180mm fork all the way down to 130mm and your damper will simply compress to the new travel without any negative effects.
However, if you are increasing the travel of your fork, then you need to check to ensure that you are not going above the maximum travel of your specific damper. Below is a list of the common dampers that fit in the Fox 36 Rhythm/Marzocchi Bomber Z1 chassis, along with their maximum travel according to the fork's wheel size:
Maximum Damper Travel (DO NOT EXCEED):
The Fox/Marzocchi Air Shaft for 36 Rhythm/Bomber includes a new air shaft, a new foot nut, a new crush washer, and all accompanying seals pre-installed. The air shaft is available in multiple travel options for you to choose from.
You will need Fox 20wt Gold Oil for the air-side lower leg bath, Fox 5wt PTFE Oil for the damper-side lower leg bath, Slickoleum to lubricate the dust wipers, a Syringe to get the oil in the fork, and a Fox Damper-Side Crush Washer to finish installation. The new air shaft includes a brand new crush washer, so there is no need to purchase one of those separately.
