Up to standards.
Last year around this time, we were all just getting our hands on Boost hubs. Fast-forward a year, and Boost has endeared itself to even the most cynical among us with its stiffer, more responsive tracking. FOX Racing Shox had just redesigned its 2016 Float forks when this was all happening, and this year, the company decided it was time to bring the technology to the 2017 36 Float 27.5 160 HSC/LSC FIT Boost Fork.
Essentially, this year's version of the 36 Float delivers all of the reliability and bump-devouring cush that you loved from last year's roundup of FOX forks with the added stiffness of Boost spacing. When you're hurtling over consecutive hits on rough, unforgiving terrain, you'll appreciate the improved rigidity that the new standard brings. And for the times you and your enduro beast need to lockout your suspension and climb, the fork's rigidity will take over to help lend some smoothness to your lumbering ascent. In addition to Boost, the fork's stiffness also comes courtesy of last year's redesigned crown and lowers, which are lighter and stiffer with a shorter axle-to-crown measurement. This step also simplifies installation significantly, requiring little-to-no alterations to the bike's front end geometry. FOX also includes high-viscosity proprietary fork oil for quick rebound during successive hits.
FOX saw no need to alter the efficient redesign of its air spring design, revised last year, to include a dual-chamber air spring, which reduced weight and the number of smoother seals, which allows the fork to initiate travel with less force than previous versions. You can offset the quick initiation with volume spacers to make the fork ramp-up harder, with the other leg featuring FOX's HSC/LSC FIT damper to help you manage the fork's behavior depending on what kind of day you have planned.

Rough and Tumble Fork
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have a Ibis Mojo 3 and wanted to deck it out to make it as burly of a short(er) travel bike as I could. I got this fork and bumped it down to 140mm to keep the bike's geo the same.
I ride just about everything with this and it crushes everything from all day rides to bike park laps. It eats up chunder like no other, even tech trails are made easy with this.
I think in the future, I would personally go with a 3 position adjustment, as I'm not as much of a tinkerer as this fork may require.
If you have any questions on the fork itself or if it would be a great upgrade option, don't hesitate giving a shout to my direct line 801.204.4547 or email@example.com
Does this fork require any brake adapters? I see it it says post mount, but when I pull it out of the box, what will it take to mount my brakes with either a 180mm or 203mm rotor size?
What is the weight of the fork?
This Fork weighs approximately 4.471 pounds.should you have any more questions about this fork or if you would like to set up an order, feel free to reach out directly!
