If you're looking to increase or decrease the travel in your 2018+ Fox Float 34 Rhythm or Marzocchi Bomber Z2 fork, then just snag an air shaft and swap it out in your fork!
*NOTE* - This air shaft will not fit a standard Fox 34, it will only fit the Fox 34 Rhythm
The Fox/Marzocchi Air Shaft for 34 Rhythm/Bomber Z2 fits all models of Fox 34 Rhythm and 2018 +Marzocchi Bomber Z2. Fox currently owns and manufactures Marzocchi products, and the Fox 34 Rhythm share the same chassis specs as the Marzocchi Bomber Z2.
This air shaft is NOT compatible with any other models of Fox or Marzocchi forks. It is NOT compatible with non-Rhythm models of the Fox 34 forks including Factory Series, Performance Series Elite, or Performance Series.
Below is the installation procedure we follow in our shop:
You do not need to pay any attention to your damper if you are changing the travel to be shorter than what it is now, because the damper will just compress to accomodate for the decreased travel. Yes, you can even decrease your 150mm fork all the way down to 100mm and your damper will simply compress to the new travel without any negative effects.
However, if you are extending 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 34 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 34 Rhythm/Bomber Z2 includes a new air shaft and all accompanying seals pre-installed, as well as a new spring retaining clip. The air shaft is available in multiple travel options for you to choose from.
