FOX Racing Shox 32 Float SC 29 100 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork (51mm Rake) $889.00
Front of the pack.
Leave the competition behind with the ultralight efficiency of the FOX 32 Float SC 29 100 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork (51mm Rake), which is the lightest XC fork ever produced by FOX. The innovative Step Cast (SC) chassis shaves weight with stepped lowers that are 10 millimeters narrower than standard Float 32 Forks, meaning you'll maintain the tunable support of its Float air spring and stable tracking of 32-millimeter stanchions. New for this year, the 32 Float Step Cast gets the EVOL (extra volume negative air spring) overhaul from FOX rear shocks for heightened small-bump sensitivity.
Since it's 10 millimeters narrower to shave weight, FOX engineers had to employ a stepped lower design to accommodate disc brakes, wheel spokes, and 2.3-inch tires without clearance issues. Not only do these stepped lowers provide ample clearance for disc brakes, wheels, and tires, but they significantly reduce weight with hollow lowers resultant of shortening the upper tubes and raising the magnesium lowers. This maximizes efficiency in cross-country and marathon racing where saving every gram is crucial to success.
The 32 Float Step Cast sports a lightweight version of the Fit4 damper with 3-position adjust for switching between Open, Medium, and Firm modes. Open mode provides 22 clicks of low-speed compression for fine-tuning its feel to your exact riding preferences, as well as tailoring it to specific race courses at hand. Medium firms it up without being fully locked out, giving you greater efficiency for smooth trails and long climbs. Firm comes in handy for fire roads and asphalt approaches to the trail where a practical lock-out is necessary.
Please note, each 32 Float Step Cast comes with a Kabolt thru-axle (bolt-on) that shaves weight while maintaining wheel stiffness for precise tracking. It also features a 51-millimeter rake that reduces the "dead space" between the steering axis and hub, helping to remedy the slower steering and sluggish handling inherent to modern 29ers with slacker geometries.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've had this fork, or earlier versions, on 4 bikes now. The oldest I have is 3 years old and still not had one bit of problems with it. Performance is always great, they are definitely my go to fork. Highly recommended.
