32 SC

Starting at 2.98 pounds, the 32 Step-Cast (SC) fork is Fox’ lightest cross-country fork ever.
Optimized for 100mm of travel, the Step-Cast lower leg design and narrow crown spacing save weight while the 32mm upper tubes maintain FOX ride quality.

The distinct shape of the lower leg design isn’t just for looks. The 32 Step Cast (SC) chassis uses a narrow stance to save weight, while the step design makes room for the spokes and brake rotor. The 32 SC features 32mm upper tubes and ample bushing overlap for a quality ride. The hollowed out lower legs provide even more weight
savings.

Own the Track

40 Own The Track

The Choice of 2015 DH World Champion Rachel Atherton!

Transfer Seatpost
The all-new Transfer seatpost features an infinitely adjustable design with the choice of internal or external cable routing, three drop options, and two lever designs. The self-adjusting blow-off valve helps maintain consistent action and reliability.

• Low lever force provides consistent actuation pressure even with a weighted or unweighted saddle
• Two remote options: Left side below bar (for 1x) or Left/Right on bar (for 2x/3x)
• Cable actuated with tool-free quick disconnect for easier installation and removal
• 30.9 or 31.6 diameter

Using our proven Championship- and award-winning FIT sealed cartridge design, HSC/LSC is our most advanced damper.

• High- and low-speed compression adjust
• Rebound adjust
• Low-friction seal head design

Kabolt
Lightweight 15QR axle – starting at 34.5g (15x100mm)

KABOLT

Inspired by Geoff Kabush through the Fox RAD program, the Kabolt is now available for all 15QR forks.

• 100mm version is 40g (54%) lighter than the Fox 15QR axle
• Available in 15x100mm and 15x110mm widths
• Compatible with all 15QR forks
• Installs with a 6mm hex
• Black and orange axles available


Air Volume Spacers
Fox fork and shock FLOAT air springs can be tuned using volume spacers to make them more or less progressive, allowing riders to fine-tune their suspension to their needs.


FIT4
FOX Isolated Technology
Now in its fourth generation, the patented FIT4 (FOX Isolated Technology) closed cartridge system provides three on-the-fly compression damping positions—Open, Medium, and Firm—to adapt to varying trail conditions. Factory Series forks feature an additional 22 clicks of low-speed compression adjust in the Open mode, allowing riders to fine-tune their exact damping preferences.

The FIT4 cartridge damper was redesigned based on the award-winning HSC/LSC damper, resulting in a much higher performing damper across all forks. This year, the FIT4 damper received an updated tune that provides more sensitivity while maintaining support.


FLOAT Air Spring
Patented Air Transfer Port System
The FLOAT air spring system reduces the force to initiate travel, providing excellent sensitivity and small bump compliance for all riders and pressure settings. Similar to Fox FLOAT rear shocks, the FLOAT air spring system features positive and negative air springs that automatically equalize during use to give each rider the right
pressure balance. The progressiveness of the spring curve can be adjusted via air volume spacers, allowing riders to fine-tune the feel of the air spring.


FLOAT DPS
Fox’ highest performing inline shock

FLOAT DPS

• Design offers excellent bump absorption and firm lockout
• DPS damper with three positions to match any terrain
• Optional EVOL air sleeve improves responsiveness and sensitivity
• Factory Series models feature Genuine Kashima Coat


Dual Piston System
FLOAT shocks with Dual Piston System (DPS) feature three on-the-fly settings—Open, Medium, and Firm—to allow riders to adapt to a wide variety of terrain. The valve design provides full lockout without compromising bump compliance, ride control, and efficiency. Factory Series shocks feature an additional 3 clicks of low-speed compression adjustability in the Open mode.


FLOAT X
The choice of 2015 EWS World Champions Richie Rude and Tracy Moseley

FLOAT X

• New damping tune improves bump absorption and control
• Reservoir design made for aggressive riding
• Three on-the-fly settings to match every rider’s needs

• SLS spring option provides titanium weight savings at affordable price
*Coil spring sold separately. Shown with SLS Spring option.


EVOL Air Sleeve
The Extra Volume (EVOL) air sleeve significantly reduces the force to initiate travel, providing added sensitivity and better small bump compliance. The progressiveness of the spring curve can be adjusted via air volume spacers, allowing riders to fine-tune the feel of the air spring.


Rod Valve System
The Rod Valve System (RVS) provides a more seamless damping transition when absorbing small to large impacts, resulting in faster system response, more control, and less harshness.


SLS Spring
Super Light Steel

SLS SPRING

Our Super Lightweight Steel (SLS) springs are lighter than titanium at more affordable prices.

A proprietary surface treatment and stress relief process remove residual stresses from the spring, allowing them to withstand higher stresses. Each spring is optimized by using a smaller wire diameter and fewer coils, creating a lighter spring.


Digital Pump
The digital pump gives you an exact pressure setting to make suspension and seatpost setup easier and repeatable every time.

• 0-300 PSI in 0.5 PSI increments
• Reads in PSI, BAR, KG/CM2
• Replaceable battery


GRIP Damper
Inspired from moto, the new GRIP damper uses Fox’ FIT sealed cartridge technology combined with a coil-sprung, independent floating piston. GRIP allows excess oil to purge through specially designed ports at the top of the damper to maintain consistent damping and increase durability. Performance Series forks provide Open, Medium, and Firm modes with additional micro-adjust between settings.


New Remote option
New suspension remote design features updated ergonomics and shields the internals from the elements.

• Single or dual cable compatible (fork, shock, or both)
• 2 position (Open, Firm modes)
• Two remote options: Left side below the bar or right side above the bar
• In-line barrel adjusters
