The Hard Hitting Long-Travel Enduro Specialist
The Fox Factory 2021 Float 38 Performance Suspension fork has 170mm of travel and packs a massive feature set.
The Tech Talk
Fox's floating axle system offers a distinct performance advantage because it can match the exact width of the fork's wheel mounting surface to the hub flange spacing, creating a perfect alignment and minimizing friction.
This axle type also provides smoother suspension movement throughout the entire range of travel.
Lower leg channels increase air volume, allowing full travel to be achieved, whereas other systems can nerf travel. Fox's system also continually circulates lubrication between the upper and lower reaches of the legs.
The air spring of the Float 38 Performance fork uses Fox EVOL technology to increase negative air spring volume, optimizing small bump sensitivity. EVOL's linear spring curve delivers plushness off the top, extra mid-stroke support, and more tunable bottom-out progression.
Rounding out the package is a GRIP damper that uses Fox's FIT sealed cartridge technology combined with a coil-sprung floating piston. The system allows oil to purge through ports at the top of the damper to maintain consistency. The damper has three on-the-fly settings, open, medium and firm.
The Wrap Up
All of the features packed into the new Fox 2021 forks are designed to operate seamlessly with your bike, keeping the stoke high and the radness at maximum.
While all of the technical details may be a bit overwhelming, if nothing else, understand that Fox has done the work so you can have the fun.
