FOX Racing Shox 36 Float 29 160 HSC/LSC FIT Boost Fork (51mm Rake) $1,049.00
The best just got better.
It's hard to believe the suspension gurus at FOX set out to improve the 36 Float 29 160 HSC/LSC FIT Boost Fork (51mm Rake), especially considering its unbelievable success in the world of enduro racing and aggressive all-mountain riding. We'd be hard pressed to doubt their motives, stoked about the integration of EVOL technology into the newest version's Float air spring. EVOL technology is borrowed from FOX's rear shocks, thereby increasing the negative air spring volume for greater sensitivity to small bumps at the top of its stroke.
Impressively stiff 36-millimeter stanchions work to deflect torsional forces from bucking you silly when you're rallying across the roughest trails imaginable, sending A-line hits in the park, and descending steep, puckering lines. These stanchions employ FOX's Kashima coating for greater sensitivity and heightened durability levels. This Kashima coating is only available on FOX's Factory line, differentiating it from lower spec'd options, such as the 36 Performance Elite series.
This particular 36 Float gives discerning riders greater adjustability with the FIT damper providing independent control over high and low-speed compression. This option is nice for experienced rider dialing in the precise feel and tracking performance of their long-travel enduro/all-mountain fork, as opposed to the pre-configured 3-position adjust of other 36 Float Forks. Other notable features include a 51-millimeter rake for a bit nimbler handling by decreasing its "dead" space between the steering axis and hub, as well as a 15 x 110-millimeter BOOST quick-release thru-axle for stiffer tracking of your 29er.
