FOX Racing Shox 32 FLOAT 26in 150 CTD Fork - 2013 $934.00
In the early nighties, forks had the structural integrity of food-court utensils, with travel as mushy as the fare. And if you rode when those were the only option, you're able to appreciate how Fox Racing Shox has pushed the industry. Now, we're all able to enjoy products like this 32 Float 26in 150 CTD Fork.
One quick example of this was Fox teaming up with Shimano to establish the stiff, lightweight, and easy-to-use 15QR standard that's found here on the 32 Float 150 CTD. Another example of Fox leading is found within the current simplification trend. Everywhere from linkage hardware to drivetrain gearing resonates with a-less-is-more ideology, and manufacturers are finally cutting the fat. In Fox's case, this also includes the interaction between human and machine.
Long-time Fox riders will immediately notice Fox's Climb, Trail, Descend damper adjustments. And there's no need to worry, you're still getting the same adjustments to high- and low-speed compression, only it's now packaged in a more user-friendly format. Climb mode provides the most damping for a near locked-out feel. Meanwhile, it still provides a bit of cushion for any unexpected hard hits. Click the damper into the Trail mode, and you'll find that there's ample low-speed compression in order to keep the fork riding high in the travel through berms, jumps, and rocks. Better yet, it still provides plenty of compliance in order to smooth out the ride. And, as you may have guessed, Descend mode provides the lightest compression damping for a plush ride.
Depending on your tastes, many riders simply find the trail setting that works best for them, and don't feel the need to make on-the-fly adjustments. However, the CTD lever is easily accessible for those of you whose ride isn't complete until you've flipped your suspension levers a few dozen times. And best of all, those options are presented in a way that makes each adjustment instinctive. This way, you don't need a degree in fluid dynamics in order to correctly tune your suspension.

good fork for the Price
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I got one of these last summer and was pleased with it. If my air pressure in the fork was dialed the fork felt great, but if it was off, it was easy to tell, and the forks performance went downhill.
CDT was nice, basically locked out in the climb and i preferred the way it felt with in trail mode overall.
