36 Float 27.5 FIT4 Factory Boost Fork
When you're barreling through chunky, technical terrain, the impressively-stiff 36mm stanchions work to deflect torsional forces from bucking you every which way. These stanchions benefit from a Kashima coating that reduces friction, meaning that you'll feel that its more sensitive, smoother, as well as more durable than the black anodized stanchions you'll find on FOX's less expensive forks.
On this particular model you'll find FOX's Fit4 damper with 3-position adjustment employed. This gives you the ability to switch between Open, Medium, and Firm settings on a whim. In Open mode you'll find 22-clicks of low speed compression tuning, which enables you to fine-tune your setup to your exact preferences. Medium gives you added efficiency on smoother trails and long climbs by lessening the excessive bobbing motion, and Firm acts as a practical lookout when you're slogging up long climbs, and working your way up fire roads that warrant all of the energy you can muster.
A revised tune and reconfigured shim stack make the Fit4 damper a bit more sensitive than its predecessors, allowing it to soak up smaller variances in terrain, and bumps along the ride. A benefit of this reconfiguration is that its easier to swap volume spacers to boost the progressive feel, as FOX removed a previous seal, making changes simple, so you can ride the fork just how you want it. This is especially welcome for those of us taking DH runs and park laps where an extra progressive feel is needed to prevent bottoming out and harsh transitions.
