Ideal for enduro and all-mountain, Fox's Float X Factory Series is controlled, supple, and supportive when you charging terrain usually reserved for big bikes. Beyond gravity fed riding, it features three on-the-fly settings for total damping control and an EVOL air sleeve that significantly reduces the force required to initiate travel. Precise damping for climbing, ripping trail, and descending like a madman is quickly and easily handled. And with Kashima-Coated stanchion and body, you get DH plushness with XC pedaling efficiency. To balance this great damping, you can also dial in the rebound to get the best of both worlds.
For the best suspension yet, Fox has brought Miyaki Company of Japan’s legendary Kashima Coat to its shock bodies. You can recognize it by the unique gold color. This coating, which is four times harder than hard-anodized aluminum, made its name in car and motorcycle suspensions and drivetrains, and now you can enjoy all its amazing benefits. These include super low friction, excellent abrasion resistance and durability, and significantly better lubrication characteristics. In short, this shock is way more reactive, soaks up even tiny bumps and lasts longer with less maintenance, too.
