Trusty trail fork for every ride.
The FOX 34 Float 29 130 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Performance Elite Series Fork is purposely built for trail riders seeking high levels of sensitivity and support while pushing themselves on everything from tacky forest loam to rocky trails in the desert. 34-millimeter stanchions provide support for riders descending at high speeds and hitting technical trails, yet they're a bit lighter than competitor's forks packing burlier 35-millimeter stanchions. Overall, we'd recommend this option if you'd like to build up your trail bike with lightweight components that are still highly capable on the trail.
This particular 34 Float is part of FOX's Performance Elite Series, which saves you some cash from the top-flight Factory Series, albeit with a sacrifice in some sensitivity, due to swapping Kashima-coated stanchions for a black anodized coating. Looking to the fork's internals, the Float air spring is packing EVOL for increased sensitivity to trails littered with a ton of bumpy roots and small rock sections. EVOL technology is originally borrowed from FOX's rear shocks, increasing the fork's negative air spring volume to produce a more sensitive, supple feel.
Not only is it increasingly sensitive, but the 34 Float's Fit 4 damper gives you the ability to switch between Open, Medium, and Firm settings while you're riding. Though we're sure most riders will tend to leave their 34 Float wide open, some will definietly take advantage of the Medium and Firm settings for long climbs where energy conservation is necessary and smooth fire roads where excessive fork motion only works to slow you down. Additionally, you'll find there's 22 clicks of low-speed compression tuning in Open mode, which helps to fine-tune the fork's support to your exact riding style and the local terrain at hand.
