FOX Racing Shox 32 Float 140 CTD Fit Fork - 2013 $0.00
The long-travel 140mm Float 32 CTD FIT Fork ushers in a new era for damping technology at Fox. Climb, trail, and descend settings can be quickly and easily switched using the three-position lever located above the right crown. This allows you to intuitively make significant changes to your bikes handling characteristics for the conditions at hand.
Fox forks have traditionally been featured packed, offering the ability to make any adjustments needed to tune the fork for any trail conditions. The only problem was the difficulty for the average rider to make knowledgeable tweaks to the forks. High- and low-speed compression, lockout threshold, preload, and rebound are all common adjustments, but, for the guy who wants to ride, and not relentlessly and aimlessly tune a fork, this can have a negative effect on performance and user experience.
With CTD, one lever quickly and easily switches the fork's compression to ideal settings for the task at hand. The Climb setting adds plenty of low-speed compression to mitigate bobbing when standing on the pedals. Trail mode offers moderate low-speed compression to balance efficiency with optimal trail manners. It's also independently adjustable with three settings; soft, medium, and firm. Finally, the Descend setting features the perfect blend of high- and low-speed compression for plush action on steep and aggressive sections of trail.
Another key feature to this new Fox fork is a redesigned spring curve for forks 130mm and above. There's now a more linear spring rate. This is achieved by using a longer negative spring and by reducing the air spring’s compression ratio. The resulting curve gives the air fork a more coil-like feel, and it also will use more of its travel because the preload won't ramp up.
The 2013 lowers are now 50 grams lighter than last year's comparable model. While that may not seem significant, keep in mind dropping mass from the lowers effectively reduces un-sprung weight — which affects the amount of inertia the damper needs to control, resulting in enhanced suspension action. To drop the weight, Fox's engineers retained the Float's respected torsional stiffness by redesigning the brace, dropouts, and wall thickness.
The 2013 Fox Float 32 140 Fork comes in White with the smooth and durable Kashima coating on the stanchion tubes. You can choose between a straight 1-1/8in steerer or a tapered 1.5 to 1-1/8in steerer. Both options come with 15QR thru-axles.

Item # FRS0120 this FOX is durable Kashima...
Item # FRS0120 this FOX is durable Kashima coating on the stanchion tubes ?
but the photo is normal coating
This fork does have the Kashima stanchions, the photo is wrong.
Flexy in the bad way
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
First of all, I am not a fan of the CTD system, but that is personal preference. The 32 chassis has simply been outpaced by modern bikes, and doesn't have the stiffness for aggressive riding. You can feel the fork winding up under you if you are cornering super hard...this is more of a long cross-country fork these days.
i hvea a marida 120 pr xt with 16 inch...
i hvea a marida 120 pr xt with 16 inch wheels and 120mm forks would these 140mms fit straight on
No, first off this fork is designed around a 26 inch wheel, so unless that was a typo, the fork height will be substantially too tall. Also, its not recommended to deviate from the fork travel installed at the factory, as you will be raising the front end, and increasing the leverage on the head tube. You should consult Merida before installing a different travel fork.
