The Fox Float uses 100mm of air sprung travel, keeps the weight very minimal and adjustability accessible. Add this to any Cross Country bike and you’ll have the ultimate setup for any XC course, fire road, or local singletrack. Fox has upgraded the Float series by giving it a longer negative spring and reducing the air spring compression ratio for a more linear feel. Another upgrade to take note of, is the Float’s air spring now has less breakaway force.
The Fox Float features the 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.
CTD Technology is incredibly easy to use and allows you ultimate adjustability on the trail. CTD is short for Climb, Trail, and Descend. It 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 indecisive terrain. The rider is quickly able to flip the lever between the three positions on the fly to ensure 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 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 plushness 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. Climb, Trail, and Descend mode technology will change the way you ride. Climb, Trail, and Descend mode technology will change the way you ride, making it easier for the rider to adjust their fork to adapt to the terrain ahead.
This version of the Float is set up to be used with Fox’s CTD handlebar remote (not included). The handle bar remote allows the rider to effortlessly toggle between the three settings with a switch that’s mounted right on the handlebars.
For 2014, the weight has been reduced, yet the fork feels stiffer due to the improved damping system.

Comments about Fox Racing Shox Fox 32 Float 100 CTD Remote 27.5" '14 OE:
I upgraded from the budget SR Suntour XCR that came on my bike after the damper/lockout blew up. Suntour didn't have the parts I needed to honor their warranty but they did offer to downgrade me to a cheaper unit... I will never buy anything suntour again. Cheap products, and they treat their customers like idiots.
This Fox float 32 is amazing though! When installing I was shocked at how much lighter it was than my old coil spring fork. I weighed both and the Fox was about 2lb lighter! This has a huge effect on how the bike maneuvers. It's so nimble and easy to lift the front end over obstacles. Then of course there is the improved dampening performance, and complete adjustability. Obviously the thing looks beautiful too.
I also made the jump from quick release front axle to 15 mm thru axle with this upgrade (i have Stan's rims so it was easy to convert). So the difference was night and day. The front end is really stiffened up and the whole bike feels more solid in high speed cornering and when blasting through rock gardens. The set it and forget it indexable axle nut makes wheel removal and install quick and easy. The axle always tightens back to the exact same spot, every time.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for an upgrade, or for a new bike build.
