Up to standards.

Last year around this time, we were all just getting our hands on Boost hubs. Fast-forward a year, and Boost has endeared itself to even the most cynical among us with its stiffer, more responsive tracking. FOX Racing Shox had just redesigned its 2016 Float forks when this was all happening, and this year, the company decided it was time to bring the technology to the 2017 36 Float 27.5 160 HSC/LSC FIT Boost Fork.

Essentially, this year's version of the 36 Float delivers all of the reliability and bump-devouring cush that you loved from last year's roundup of FOX forks with the added stiffness of Boost spacing. When you're hurtling over consecutive hits on rough, unforgiving terrain, you'll appreciate the improved rigidity that the new standard brings. And for the times you and your enduro beast need to lockout your suspension and climb, the fork's rigidity will take over to help lend some smoothness to your lumbering ascent. In addition to Boost, the fork's stiffness also comes courtesy of last year's redesigned crown and lowers, which are lighter and stiffer with a shorter axle-to-crown measurement. This step also simplifies installation significantly, requiring little-to-no alterations to the bike's front end geometry. FOX also includes high-viscosity proprietary fork oil for quick rebound during successive hits.

FOX saw no need to alter the efficient redesign of its air spring design, revised last year, to include a dual-chamber air spring, which reduced weight and the number of smoother seals, which allows the fork to initiate travel with less force than previous versions. You can offset the quick initiation with volume spacers to make the fork ramp-up harder, with the other leg featuring FOX's HSC/LSC FIT damper to help you manage the fork's behavior depending on what kind of day you have planned.
