Also among the crossers and racing cyclists there are drivers with a certain comfort. Fox's answer is the AX fork. With 40 mm of travel, it has enough deo for poor roads or bumpy forest highways. The gain in comfort can delay the driver's fatigue during long trips.
Stiff 32 mm anodized standpipes, exclusive SKF seals and the closed cartridge ensure a long service life.
Different voting options ensure best performance on the trail, provided they are set correctly. And that's exactly where the problem lies - many hobby drivers are overwhelmed with it and do not exploit the potential of their chassis correctly due to incorrect settings. The result - more frustration than pleasure in biking.
To prevent such problems in the future, Fox has thought and developed the 3-pos system.
This extremely simplifies the pressure level adjustment and the coordination of the spring elements with each other, thus allowing an unprecedented performance and harmony of your suspension.
32 SC chassis design
The distinctive shape of the dip tube design is not just for the look. With the Step-Cast (SC) fork chassis of the 32er series FOX brings a narrow construction method to save weight. The step in the fork base also provides space for the spokes and the brake rotor. The 32 SC fork scores points with excellent handling characteristics - 32 mm stanchions and generously overlapping bushings ensure precise implementation of the steering impulses.
The fourth generation of the patented FIT4 (FOX Isolated Technology) encapsulated cartridge system provides three on-the-run adjustable compression (open, medium and fixed) positions to adapt to terrain conditions at all times. The Factory Series forks also feature a low-speed compression setting with 22 clicks in open mode, allowing the rider to fine-tune spring behavior to their preferences.
The FIT4 cartridge silencer has been redesigned based on the award-winning HSC / LSC damper, so all forks now feature a significantly more powerful damper. This year, the FIT4 damper has been updated with an improved tuning that provides more sensitivity and yet firm grip.
The enlarged negative air chamber significantly improves the response of the fork. This increases the comfort, because the breakaway torque could be reduced. In addition, a more linear spring characteristic offers better performance, especially in the middle travel ranges.
FLOAT AIR SPRING
The FLOAT air suspension system reduces the breakaway torque and thus provides a highly sensitive fork and rich comfort even with small punches. And that for every driver type and for the most different air pressure. Similar to the FLOAT struts, the FLOAT suspension system features a positive and a negative air chamber, which automatically align with each other when driving
compensate. Each driver thus 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 our air volume spacers - which allows every driver to precisely adjust the characteristics of the air spring.
AIR VOLUME SPACERS
The FLOAT air spring on our forks and struts can be fine-tuned through the use of volume spacers to tune the spring elements more progressively or less progressively. This allows the driver to fine tune the suspension exactly to his needs.
