    Smooth sailing.

    2016 saw a massive reworking of FOX Racing Shox's line, and we're happy to see the 2017 forks extending those much loved changes for another year of trail-shredding fun. The 2017 32 Float 27.5 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork brings 120mm of plush — but still XC — travel to the table for smooth navigation and confident control over rough terrain. As with the 2016 version, this fork's steerer, crown, uppers, lowers, and Float Air spring shed weight compared to earlier iterations while at the same time getting an overall increase in stiffness for a sharp, responsive ride.

    The FIT4 damper's puffed out, 10mm shaft increases oil flow to the base valve, allowing the fork to ride high for quick, controlled recovery during everything from big, square hits to successive, small impacts. The 3-position Fit4 system also takes the reins from the old CTD system, changing the names from the overly-prescriptive categories of Climb, Trail, and Descend to a graduating scale covering Firm, Medium, and Open. While this change may read like an exercise in semantics, it entails a radical realignment of the 34 Float's capabilities that addresses virtually every issue we've had with CTD's damper in the past.

    FIT4 also migrates the adjustable sub settings from CTD's median Trail mode to the new Open setting. Open encompasses both Descend and Trail in order to take full advantage of the fork's high ride by handling most compression duties. This makes the fork that much more relevant to all-mountain situations, combining better small-bump compliance with more confident tracking through rock gardens and rough terrain. It doesn't wallow and handling stays on point.

    The Medium setting migrates much deeper into the firm side of compression than the Trail setting did, so it'll suffice in most conditions that don't require use of the big-bottomed Open setting. The Firm setting remains self-explanatory: an XC lock-out for turning on the afterburners when terrain allows. It'll likely see much less use in the new system, but we still appreciate Firm while riding to the trailhead or transitioning on logging roads.

    FOX's tinkering wasn't just confined to the damper, though, as the Float air spring now omits the negative coil in favor of a self-equalizing air assembly. This is similar to the air spring chamber system that made the re-worked 36 series such a success, and its omission of a steel coil is a key contributor to the overall weight loss. Finally, its system of spacers lets you easily temper the air shock's volume for dialing the mid stroke.
