Float over the trail.
There's a lot to be said for true dedication and true single-mindedness when it comes to getting a job done. While it doesn't actually have a 'mind', the Fox 32 Float 100 RL FIT is truly dedicated–to XC mountain biking, that is. This shortest-travel Float is also the lightest, and the 9mm QR dropouts only serve to drive the point home–this is one dedicated fork.
The fork is designed around the Fox FIT damper which isolates the system's oil from air. By doing so, they've created a smoother system and one that doesn't succumb to fluid aeration and its ill effects. A bladder in the damper assembly minimizes friction, allows for internal fluid volume changes, and works to maintain damping consistency as you work the suspension hard. This design also uses less fluid so it shaves more than a few grams compared to their older open-bath damper design. With the introduction of new FIT dampers, the rebound ...the shortest travel 32 Float and also the lightest, this 100mm fork is ready to race and has all the damping adjustment you can handle... adjustment on the fork moves to the bottom of the right fork leg, making it less prone to accidental adjustments. It also includes a lockout force adjust knob atop the right fork leg, allowing the rider to control the desired amount of blowoff when locked out. The lockout lever is easier than ever to use when riding, even with gloved hands.
In short, Fox has yet again improved upon what was already the best damper assembly in the industry. It's smoother, lighter and more controlled. A smoother stroke means more traction. More traction means more control. More control makes for a better ride.
The 9mm QR dropouts are the the tried-and-true undisputed XC champs. When it comes time to change a flat, and every second counts, there's no quicker system. Plus, with 9mm QR's, you can still use that sweet old pair of Crossmax's or the old-school deep-v rims that you laced to those beautiful red ano King hubs.
The Fox 32 Float 100 FIT RLC Fork has 100mm of air sprung travel. The lowers have an integrated hose guide on the arch and post-style disc brake mounts that directly accept a 160mm rotor. The lowers and crown are White, and it's available with a 1 1/8 inch steerer tube.
