Weighing from 1,352 g, the new 32 Step-Cast (SC) suspension fork is the lightest cross-country fork Fox has ever built. The chassis is optimised for 100 mm suspension travel, the Step-Cast immersion tube design and optimised overall width save weight, while the 32 mm stanchions guarantee the legendary FOX riding quality.
Now in its fourth generation, the patented, closed FIT4 damping system (Fox Isolated Technology) equips the rider with three different compression damping positions: Open, Medium and Firm. This allows the damping to be perfectly adapted to changing trail conditions. The Factory Series models are characterised by the broadband low-speed pressure stage adjustment in open mode, which can be adjusted in 22 clicks. This allows the rider to adjust the fork exactly to his or her preferences. The FIT4 damping cartridge has been extensively revised based on the multiple award-winning HSC/LSC damping structure. The result is a significantly more powerful damper in all fork series. This year, Fox has given the FIT4 damper a new tuning, which makes it even more sensitive and at the same time produces a fork that always offers sufficient resistance in rough terrain.
FLOAT AIR SPRING
Patented air transfer portsystem
The FLOAT air suspension system reduces the breakaway torque and thus offers a highly sensitive fork and full comfort even with small impacts. This applies for all types of riders and at varying air pressures.
Similar to the FLOAT suspension struts, the FLOAT suspension system is characterised by positive and negative air chambers, which automatically balance each other out when riding. Every rider therefore enjoys the benefits of the correct, precisely balanced air pressure in both air chambers. The progression of the spring characteristic curve can be adjusted with the air volume spacers - enabling every driver to precisely adjust the characteristics of the air spring.
AIR VOLUME SPACERS
The FLOAT air suspension of the Fox forks and struts can be fine-tuned using volume spacers to make the suspension elements more or less progressive. This allows the rider to fine-tune the suspension exactly to their needs.
Superlight 15QR axle - inspired by Racer Geoff Kabush and his collaboration with the Fox RAD program, the Kabolt axle is now available for everyone to retrofit on all 15QR forks. The highlights are: 40g lighter (100mm version) than the Fox 15QR axle (54% weight saving), compatible with all 15QR fork models, mountable with a 6mm Allen key.
