The Fox Float 29 was fine tuned by Fox to provide a comfortable ride for big wheeled bikes. The Float 29 has superior stiffness in order to counteract the larger wheelbase flex. To ensure buttery smooth cycling, the 34mm 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. The 34mm stanchions are resistant to flex and provide superior steering. For 2014, Fox worked to refine their Float series. The Float's now weigh less than prior years and have a much stiffer feel, due to the improved spring curve.
The Fox Float 29 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.
The Fox Float features Fox's CTD technology. CTD is short for Climb, Trail, and Descend. It is a three position on the fly system that provides three distinct compression dampings that you’d typically need on an average ride. CTD is extremely useful on the trail. The rider is quickly able to flip the lever between the three positions, and which results in being used numerously throughout 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. 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.
This version of the Float 29 comes with the remote. Attach the remote to the handlebar and easily switch through the CTD modes. Link your Fox rear suspension to the lever as well, and enjoy matched front and rear settings. This makes it easy to change the bike’s suspension characteristics on- the- fly. The remote has been completely redesigned. It is now much smaller, and requires less energy to activate. The sleek and refined design is also more aesthetically pleasing.
Climb, Trail, and Descend mode technology will change the way you ride. CTD makes it easier for the rider to adjust their fork to adapt to the terrain ahead.
This particular Fox 34 29” fork features a G2 offset (51mm). While keeping the wheel base the same, the G2 offset reduces the horizontal distance between the steering axis and wheel center by offsetting the fork which improves handling on 29” bikes. The hand position moves back and the fork offsets forward which reduces trail without affecting the headtube angle.
