FIRST LOOK! FOX’S LIGHTER AND STRONGER 36 MOUNTAIN BIKE FORK

FOX’S LIGHTER AND STRONGER 36 MOUNTAIN BIKE FORK

We can still remember the first time we rode a Fox 36 fork many years ago. At the time it was incredible to get that kind of gravity friendly performance out of a single crown fork. Years later not much has changed. Even though the newer 38 has taken over for heavy hitting enduro racing, the 36 is still one of the best all around mountain bike forks on the market. It is light and capable enough to cover everything from trail to enduro riding and anything in between.

The 36 just got even better with the introduction of the updated 36 that’s 20 grams lighter while even stronger and more durable thanks to an increase in steerer tube overlap with the new crown design. Although we have not experienced it ourselves we have heard from others who have had creaking at the crown and steerer junction so this should address that. The rest of this great fork remains the same. Weight starts at 4.28 lb (1942g) for a 29″ 160mm travel version with KaboltX axle. See what this fork is capable of under Fox athlete Greg Minnaar below and check out the fork detail highlights.

KABOLT X AXLE

Kabolt X, a lightweight bolt-on floating axle is engineered to shave grams and increase torsional stiffness via a sleeveless, single-sided pinch bolt design.

LOWER LEG BLEEDERS

Bleeders allow for atmospheric pressure equalization for better fork performance, allowing full travel to be achieved and increasing small bump sensitivity and responsiveness.

LOWER LEG ARCH

Fox’s latest lower leg design pulls out all the stops, shaving every possible gram while making sure not to compromise stiffness or strength requirements of modern enduro and gravity-style riding.

GRIP2

The GRIP2 damper allows for external fine-tuning of suspension performance thanks to Fox’s patented Variable Valve Control (VVC) technology.

FLOAT EVOL

The Float Evol air spring optimizes small bump sensitivity by increasing negative air spring volume. Its linear spring curve is designed to deliver plushness off the top, extra mid-stroke support, and more tunable bottom-out progression.
