Over the years we’ve had the pleasure of sitting down to dinner with Fox’s legendary founder, Bob Fox. Celebrating their 40th Anniversary, Fox Racing Shox has revamped their entire lineup of mountain bike forks. Significant updates have been made to the 32 and 34 models, and the 36 has received a complete redesign. Not to mention a few other special edition forks. Let’s take a look.
2015 FOX 36 RC2
First up, let’s talk about the new Fox 36 RC2, redesigned for 26, 27.5 and 26-inch wheels. The new fork offers improved rigidity and traction making it a perfect choice for all-mountain and enduro racing. The new fork is over a half-pound lighter than its predecesor starting at 4.19lbs. You will be pleased to know that the 36 RC2 works with both 15mm and 20mm thru-axles. The RC2’s damper has a redesigned valve system providing better small bump compliance, reduced friction, better traction and a wider tuning range. The air system received updates as well now being able to equalize rider weight for even more traction. They should just call these forks Fox RCT for Traction.
HERITAGE DECAL KITS
To ring in the 40th, Fox will offer Heritage Decal Kits reminiscent of their first motocross decals from 1974. The decals will work on any fork or shock regardless of year or model. They are available in red, blue, white, green and bright yellow.
STEALTH FLOAT FORKS
For a limited time, Fox is offering three stealth FLOAT fork models with stealth black decals and black anodized knobs. Oh isn’t that pretty! The three available models are:
- 32 29”/100mm CTD w/Trail Adjust
- 34 27.5”/160mm CTD w/Trail Adjust
- 40 26”/203mm RC2
