The Fox Float uses an air spring, allowing more adjustability while keeping weight very minimal. The Float features 100mm of plush, golden travel. Add this to any 650B Cross-Country bike and you’ll have the ultimate setup for mobbing fire roads or smashing short course. To put it plainly, tackle anything that comes your way. To ensure silky smooth pedaling, the uppers are Kashima coated. Kashima coating is a hard anodizing process that fills in any micro pores in the material creating a smoother surface, in comparison to a hard anodization on prior versions. Its distinctive gold color is backed by its high performance attributes including extreme durability as well as an extremely smooth feel. The whole purpose and value of the Kashima coating is its friction reduction properties, while the aesthetic value is always a cherry on top.
The 2015 Float features Fox’s FIT cartridge. FIT stands for Fox Isolated Technology. FIT technology employs a bladder system that keeps the oil and air from mixing to provide optimal performance in all riding extremes. Since the FIT cartridge uses much less oil, the weight of the fork is significantly less than one with an open bath style.
The Fox Float features Fox's CTD technology. CTD Technology is incredibly easy to use, essentially allowing you ultimate adjustability to the trail. CTD is short for Climb, Trail, and Descend, and is a three position on-the-fly system that provides three distinct compression dampenings that you’d typically need on an average ride. CTD is extremely useful on trails with erratic terrain. The rider is quickly able to flip the lever between the three positions on the fly, ensuring the perfect amount of travel for that very moment in the ride. CTD is much faster than the older click system, where the rider would have to stop and click through to find the proper setting.
Climb mode has the firmest low- speed compression, which maximizes pedaling efficiency and has minimal suspension movement to reduce pedal-bob. Internally, the oil flow is restricted, and can only flow through the Climb port, which limits the suspension’s movement. In the event of a hard impact, the spring loaded blow- off valve will allow the damper to go into its travel. Trail mode provides an optimal blend of pedaling efficiency and suspension for control on variable terrain. The oil flow is opened to the mid and high speed compression shim stack. Descend mode provides the rider with the most active suspension. Descend mode is an optimized low- speed compression setting which provides the perfect balance of control and flushness for steep, aggressive descents. Oil is able to flow through the high, mid, and low speed ports. CTD is easily controlled by switching the dial on the crown of the fork. This quick and easy adjustment allows the rider to control their suspension without having to leave the saddle.
This version of the Fox Float comes with a handlebar remote. No longer will you need to hunch over and show off your lower back to adjust your suspension. Switch between Climb, Trail, and Descend with the push of a button. Fox has streamlined the remote to make it more compact, so the left over real estate on your handlebar is available for shifters, GPSs’ and GoPros’. The remote actuation is also much softer and requires less energy than previous models.
Climb, Trail, Descend technology will revamp the way you ride, making it both quicker and easier for the rider to engage and adapt their fork to the terrain ahead.
