Inside we take a look at products from Marzocchi, deity, SDG, Sensus, Fyxation, and Feedback Sports. Marzocchi had their new 350 CR 27.5″ fork on display that adopts a lot of technology from their gravity forks that are sure to please enduro riders. SDG made some Patriot saddles for Zink and the Sensus crew as well that they had hidden away. Deity always has something new and fresh at Sea Otter and this year it was some refined Bladerunner pedals, an updated Cryptkeeper, and some new rises to their bars to compliment their carbon offerings they introduced last year.
The Marzocchi 350CR will be available in ~2 weeks. Aimed at the Enduro rider, this air fork is internally adjustable between 140-160mm of travel, 15mm qr, rebound and compression adjustments. Tapered or 1 1/8 length. Additional details in the video below from Marzocchi.

Tyler at SDG showed us these new Sensus products they’ve made for Cam Zink and company. They made some great seats for railed and their I-Beam seat posts.
The Patriot saddle is available in a traditional rail option or I-Beam. They collaborated with a local artist on the design and came up with some unique details that can be spotted if you look carefully. It’s available in two color options.
Zink took it upon himself to brand this saddle the Beerbury saddle so we’ll see if this name sticks.
Eric and Sade at deity always have something new and fresh to show off at Sea Otter. They’ve been making some pretty great video edits lately so be sure to check those out if you haven’t already.
