A Catch-up with Fox at Eurobike 2014

September 01, 2014

Fox has been having a great time celebrating their 40th anniversary and we caught up with them at Eurobike to find out more about the journey so far.

Fox was first known for developing revolutionary air shocks, before expanding to the bicycle market where things really took off.

Fox Float 36

Engineered for enduro racing, the stand alone feature here is the new float system. The completely redesigned air site comprises a positive chamber and negative chamber (replacing the steel springs that were used previously, and thus reducing overall weight). French MTB superstar Nico Lau needs no convincing about the Float 36 - he's riding them with 170mm of travel (a little longer than previous settings that gives the bike more of a downhill feel). He also keeps the dampers quite open (around 16 clicks of high speed compression/ 10 clicks of low speed compression) so that he can ride with plenty of suspension. His set-up shows just how well you can adjust the travel to the geometry of the bike and give the rider exactly what they're after.

Chris from Fox steps us through both the Float 36 and Nico's bike set-up - check it out.
