Description

Big travel for big wheels.

Sporting 120mm of trail-smoothing travel, the Fox 32 Float 29 CTD FIT Fork will redefine the way you ride. At the heart of it is the new CTD system — climb, trail, and descend. The overabundance of tuning options has now been simplified into one easy-to-use, three-position lever.

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.

While longer travel Float forks, 130mm and above, have been revised to offer a more linear spring rate, Fox felt that a progressive spring is optimal for XC conditions. This helps to prevent bottoming out the 120mm of travel and ensures a more efficient ride for racing. What they have redesigned on these forks, besides the addition of CTD, is the lowers.

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 32 Float 29 120 CTD FIT 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.
