    The 2016 line of FOX forks saw such drastic changes from earlier versions that the company's engineers are bringing them back relatively unchanged for 2017. Continuing with those much-loved updates, the 2017 FOX Racing Shox 36 Float 29 160 HSC/LSC FIT Fork (51mm Rake) brings adjustability and smooth travel to weather any all mountain or enduro adventure.

    As with the 2016 version, the crown and magnesium lowers are lighter, lower, and stiffer than previous iterations, which makes for easier work cleaning steep climbs between downhill fun zones. The changes also net shorter axle-to-crown measurements across the board, so the frame's head angle doesn't drastically change between forks. While the materials in the chassis are roughly the same, FOX opts for a newly formulated, higher-viscosity proprietary fork oil for smoother, more responsive travel.

    The new Float air spring also enjoys significant revision over the pre-2016 model, with FOX seeing off the old negative coil spring in favor a dual-chamber air spring. This neat trick of metal-to-air alchemy may be the single biggest contributor to the fork's weight loss, and when it's paired with the reduced number of smoother seals, it means the fork requires less force to initiate travel. It maintains excellent small bump compliance without completely obscuring your feel for the trail. The air spring can also be dialed to ramp-up harder by customizing its compression curve with internal spacers, and the other leg's HSC/LSC FIT damper lets you tune the fork's behavior to complement your own approach toward big hits, slow inputs, and everything in between.
