The Fox 36 Float features an air spring, which helps keep the weight very minimal. Strong 36mm stanchions that reduce fork flex. This light yet strong fork will steer you through the most technical downhill sections. The Float’s 180mm of suspension will gobble up roots, ruts, and boulders in your way. When you are racing downhill, you need a fork that is just as strong as a competitor as you are.
The Fox Float has gone under the knife once again. The Float series now features less breakaway force as compared to the prior model year. Fox has also upgraded the Float series by giving it a longer negative spring and reduced the air spring compression ratio for a more linear feel.
To ensure that the suspension is buttery smooth, the stanchions have been Kashima coated. The 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 FIT RC2 damper 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 lighter damper is also inverted in the fork which reduces unsprung weight.

Comments about Fox Racing Shox Fox 36 Float 180 RC2 Fit 26" Fork 2014:
I decided to replace the old fork on my Mojo HD (a 2012 Fox 36 Float 160mm with RC2 damper) with this fork. I wanted to get a slacker head angle and of course a little more travel as my riding style evolves to more aggressive jumps, drops, more speed, leaning harder in turns, etc.
This fork is fantastic. The spring is more linear than the 2012 version, so I'm getting ALL the travel out of this where I never really got into the final inch of travel on my old 160mm fork. So it's like I added 40mm of travel instead of 20mm.
The seals are nice and smooth, very little friction so it's a supple fork. I like to run my forks with a lot of compression damping and the adjustment range on the LSC and HSC is wide enough that I'm somewhere just past the middle on both. I'm just short of the middle on rebound damping. The RC2 damper gives plenty of range with lots of clicks for fine tuning things.
I'm 175 and running at the recommended 65 psi - works great.
The fork tracks straight, blasts through very rough stuff with ease, absorbs impacts and hard landings in a controlled way... I'm lovin' it!!!
One thing that wasn't obvious to me when I bought it - you need a 203mm rotor with this fork.
