SOLA will, with effect from 1 November 2016, become the Australian Distributor of the now USA based, performance mountain bike suspension specialist brand, Marzocchi.
Marzocchi was founded in 1949 when Stefano and Guglielmo Marzocchi started Marzocchi Spa in Bologna, Italy. Marzocchi designed and produced the first upside-down full carbon single crown fork in 2000; in the same year as the development with Gary Fisher of the first 29” fork. Some milestones of note: the Monster, the Shiver DC and SC, and the first DJ forks, the 888 and the 55, the fork that made Enduro possible.
On November 13 of 2015, Marzocchi was acquired by Fox Factory Inc. Headquartered in Scotts Valley, CA, FOX designs and manufactures high-performance ride dynamics products primarily for bicycles, side-by-side vehicles, on-road and off-road vehicles and trucks, all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles, specialty vehicles and applications, and motorcycles.
