Impressively balanced.

Building up your all-mountain rig with a fork that can handle the terrain you're dreaming about barreling into, over, and out of on a regular basis is key; after all, you don't want to load your frame down with something heavy and unyielding, but you don't want to take a featherweight fork to the edges of its capabilities every time you take a bigger-than-expected hit. FOX Racing Shox makes it pretty easy to pick and choose the features that will deliver the ride quality you want within its Float line, and its 36 Float 27.5 160 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork comes with an all-mountain attitude and the efficiency of FOX's recently redesigned Air Spring.

Last year, FOX introduced some pretty significant changes across its Float line, and the glowing feedback from the industry glossies made it impossible to ignore those changes. After introducing such a strong lineup of redesigned forks in 2016, FOX is taking 2017 to be satisfied — for now — with the impressive balance of stiffness and low weight it's achieved across the Float line. That means that for 2017, the 36 Float has the proven benefit of a lighter, stiffer chassis whose shorter axle-to-crown measurement makes installation straightforward, necessitating few alterations to your frame's front end geometry. During the times you and your enduro beast need to raise the dropper and trudge up a climb, the added stiffness keeps power going into the trail so you don't end up wallowing in plush suspension when you don't need it.

Aside from a few sporadic climbs, most of your rides will be focused on big hits and apocalyptic lines, and the 36 Float's dual-chamber air spring is eagerly waiting to initiate bump-absorbing cush over any trail furniture that stands in its way. The fork's low number of smoother seals allows it to respond quickly and initiate travel without any indecisive pauses, but if you want to modify initiation timing, FOX gives you the option of adding volume spacers for a harder ramp-up. You'll also be able to control the fork's behavior through FOX's FIT4 damper, which lets you fine-tune your ride for bombing down crater-filled lines, root-latticed flats, or anything else you encounter in a day's ride.

Fox knows they're doing.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Fox has been in the squish game for a super long time. They've achieved their pinnacle year after year, And it just keeps getting better. This fork is stiff, light, and incredibly supple. tracks like a race car and keeps the wheel dug tight in the upside down berms on Arcylon.

This fork… holy cow. It belongs on every long travel bike. I know, I know, blanket statement, but I think the fork is THAT good. I used to be nervous of square edges, rock gardens, roots, ruts, and plain old crap, this thing just soaks it up. “Confidence inspiring” doesn’t do it justice.

This fork tracks where I want it to go, doesn’t feel like dead weight, and is supple. I truly feel that at every moment, this fork is setting me up to literally overcome my obstacle.

With the new FIT4 damper, this fork has truly useful Compression modes and is simple an intuitive to adjust and tune. Unless you really like to geek out on suspension (I’m guilty!) the LSC, Rebound, and Air Volume adjustments are all you’ll need and are super easy to get dialed in.

And yes, I’ve ridden on a Pike. And yes I’d take the Fox. Every time.

Building a new bike? Upgrading the current whip? Give me a shout and I’ll make sure you get the perfect build.

Even if you’re not ready to pull the trigger, reach out if you have questions like:
- What do all the knobs and dials do?
- How do I set my suspension for me?
- Which fork is right for my bike?
