Tame the trail.
Not content with resting on their previous acclaim, the suspension-savvy folks at FOX decided that although the previous generation 34 Float was incredibly capable on the trail, it could always be better. Namely, FOX wanted to improve the 34 Float's sensitivity, but without sacrificing support across larger trail impediments. Their solution? Give the Fox 34 Float 29 130 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork a new damper tune with a reconfigured shim stack for greater sensitivity to small bumps. Following suit, the FLOAT air spring is also revised with EVOL tech (increased negative air spring volume) borrowed from FOX's EVOL rear shocks, which reduces the initial force required to initiate travel for heightened small-bump sensitivity.
The 34 Float is an ideal match for your mid-travel 29er with its 34-millimeter stanchions providing just the right amount of stiffness for precise tracking across the rough stuff—all while maintaining a relatively light feel that won't hold you back on long climbs and sufferfests in the backcountry. This particular version of the 34 Float 29 has Kashima-coated stanchions for greater bump sensitivity, giving you a buttery-smooth feel for tracking over rocks, undulations, and ruts in the trail. Boost axle standards give your 29er a rock-solid feel across jarring, rock-strewn terrain with the wider spacing increasing wheel stiffness.
The big story with the 34 Float 29 Fork is its Fit4 damper with 3-Position Adjust. The 3-Position Adjust quickly changes high and low-speed compression to suit your local terrain and riding style. In the Open setting, fluid freely flows through the low-speed compression circuit and high-speed compression shim stack for a supple feel that's perfect for wicked descents and rugged terrain. In the Open Setting, you'll find 22 clicks of tunable low-speed compression for getting its feel just right. Turning the knob to the Medium setting, you'll find it's a bit firmer, as the low-speed compression is restricted for greater efficiency with less bob on climbs. And for fire roads and asphalt approaches to the trail, the Firm setting gives you a virtual lockout, complete with a blow-off shim stack to prevent damage in case you forget to unlock it on the trail.
