Description

A fork for your pizza cutter.

Nothing's better than a perfectly tuned fork leveling the trail for optimum traction, comfort, and performance. However, to achieve that level of tuning can be a daunting endeavor if you haven't spent hours studying multi-page manuals and keeping precise notes on the fine adjustments. Fox aims to fix that with its new CTD (climb, trail, descend) system, available on the 100mm travel 2013 Float 32 29 FIT.

Fox forks have traditionally been featured packed, offering the ability to make any adjustments needed to tune the fork for any trail conditions. The only problem was the difficulty for the average rider to make knowledgeable tweaks to the forks. High- and low-speed compression, lockout threshold, preload, and rebound are all common adjustments, but, for the guy who wants to ride, and not relentlessly and aimlessly tune a fork, this can have a negative effect on performance and user experience.

With CTD, one lever quickly and easily switches the fork's compression to ideal settings for the task at hand. The Climb setting adds plenty of low-speed compression to mitigate bobbing when standing on the pedals. Trail mode offers moderate low-speed compression to balance efficiency with optimal trail manners. It's also independently adjustable with three settings; soft, medium, and firm. Finally, the Descend setting features the perfect blend of high- and low-speed compression for plush action on steep and aggressive sections of trail.

While longer travel Float forks, 130mm and above, have been revised to offer a more linear spring rate, Fox felt that a progressive spring is optimal for XC conditions. This helps to prevent bottoming out the 100mm of travel and ensures a more efficient ride for racing. What they have redesigned on these forks, besides the addition of CTD, is the lowers.

The 2013 lowers are now 50 grams lighter than last year's comparable model. While that may not seem significant, keep in mind dropping mass from the lowers effectively reduces un-sprung weight — which affects the amount of inertia the damper needs to control, resulting in enhanced suspension action. To drop the weight, Fox's engineers retained the Float's respected torsional stiffness by redesigning the brace, dropouts, and wall thickness.

The 2013 Fox 32 Float 29 100 CTD FIT Fork comes in White with the smooth and durable Kashima coating on the stanchion tubes. You can choose between a straight 1-1/8in steerer or a tapered 1.5 to 1-1/8in steerer. Both options come with 15QR thru-axles.

Hey Guys, Does backcountry.com have the Fox Racing Shox 32 Float 29 100 CTD Fit Fork model with the tapered steerer?

Sorry if you got this multiple times but through the whole password ordeal, I wasn't sure if my question got through.

Thanks, Blake

Hey garp466135,

I checked on a few things and found that we just sold out of the tapered version of the Fox Racing Shox 32 Float 29 100 CTD Fit Fork. Since the bike season is around the corner, we should be putting a few more on order and seeing them in somewhat soon. Keep an eye on the drop down menu on the item page as if we get any more in, the tapered version will show up there.
