Nimble handling and XC speed.
Dominate your local race series and school your friends around the local loop with the lightweight efficiency and nimble handling feel of the FOX 32 Float 29 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork (51mm Rake). It's targeted exclusively to cross-country racers and riders with its 32-millimeter stanchions and 120 millimeters of travel, which reduce overall weight compared to burlier trail offerings in FOX's line. This particular version of the 32 Float is the top-shelf Factory Series, which lends it the buttery-smooth feel of Kashima-coated stanchions. Another notable feature, its 51-millimeter rake reduces the "dead space" between the steering axis and hub, giving your 29er nimble handling at slow speeds. Ultimately, this added rake offsets the slacker geometries inherent to modern 29ers, which often result in a sluggish steering feel at slow speeds.
New for this year, the 32's Float air spring gets the welcome addition of FOX EVOL technology, which stands for extra negative air spring volume. Essentially, this technology borrowed from FOX rear shocks makes the fork more supple off-the-top, increasing its small-bump sensitivity when you're riding over roots, rocks, and trail imperfections. As always, the Float air spring retains the ability to add volume spacers for a more progressive ramp-up that prevents bottoming out over larger trail obstacles (spacers not included).
This version of the 32 Float gives you the on-the-fly adjustability with the Fit4 damper with 3-position adjust between Open, Medium, and Firm. Open mode dials in 22 clicks of low-speed compression tuning for getting its feel just right to the terrain at hand. Medium is great for long climbs and smooth trails where a bit more efficiency is desired without it being fully locked out. And for long fire roads and asphalt approaches to the trail head, the Firm mode acts as a lock-out function, complete with a blow-off shim stack—in case you forget to unlock it while riding on the trail.
