FOX Racing Shox's 36 Float line already received its fair share of updates and improvements over the last couple of seasons, and FOX is — for now — satisfied that they still deliver the ideal blend of burly all-mountain attitude on a lightweight, stiff chassis. The 36 Float 27.5 160 HSC/LSC FIT Fork delivers all of the reliability and bump-devouring cush that made you jealous of last year's version, complete with FOX's efficient HSC/LSC damper and lightweight FLOAT air spring.
Last year, the 36 Float received a lighter, stiffer chassis with a shorter axle-to-crown measurement compared to previous versions. This makes installation far more streamlined, without demanding significant changes to frame geometry. While you challenge your capable enduro beast to trudge up climbs before rallying over apocalyptic lines, FOX's self-equalizing dual-chamber FLOAT air spring will keep the fork responding quickly to successive hits, initiating travel without any indecisive pauses.
If out-of-the-box functionality doesn't quite match your style, FOX gives you the option of adding volume spacers to the spring for a harder ramp-up. Once you're out on the trails, you'll also be able to fine-tune the fork's behavior using the HSC/LSC damper, which offers a well-defined range of sub settings that allow you to control your ride quality on everything from the tight and twisties to lift-accessed lines that have you spending more time in the air than on the ground.
