THE CHOICE OF 2015 EWS WORLD CHAMPIONS RICHIE RUDE AND TRACY MOSELEY
The Float X features a new dampening tune to improve bump absorptions and a reservoir design made specifically for more aggressive riders. The three on-the-fly settings (Open, Medium, Firm,) allow riders to adapt to a wider array of terrain. This state of the art design offers complete lockout without sacrificing bump compliance, ride control, or efficiency. As a Fox Factory series shock, this model features an additional 3 clicks of low-speed compression adjust while in the "Open" position.
As an available option, Fox's Extra Volume, or EVOL, air sleeve greatly increases negative air volume to produce a softer initial stroke, adding sensitivity and improving small bump compliance. The progressiveness of the spring curve can be tailored with air volume spacers, enabling the feel of the air-spring to be fine-tuned.
Finishing off this gem of a shock, is Fox's signature Kashima coat which ensures all the travel is silky smooth. Kashima coating is an anodizing process to fill in micro pores that may exist in the material, resulting in a smoother and harder surface in comparison to other anodization processes. Its distinctive gold color is backed by its high performance and extreme durability.
