Fox Float DPX2 and Float X2 – a new era

Fox Float DPX2 and Float X2 – a new era

Were going to start this blog with a bit of a testament to the Float X, which has been a simply superb shock for several years now. Coming out in late 2012, the Float X CTD re-defined the air shock market. The ultimate in external tuna-bility, and its ability to perform like a coil shock in many ways, with the versatility of ‘air spring pressure, and air spring volume’ vs coil weight m... »

Fox 2018 Range – Early season info

  Information from the 2018 range from Fox is filtering in thick and fast now, with details on pretty much every product in the range now public, except for a new model rear shock which at least appears to be under wraps still for now. Whilst there’s no massive changes in the new models below, they have certainly raised the bar once more after last season which was a huge step forward f... »

Fox FIT damper upgrades 2017 – UPDATED

Fox FIT damper upgrades 2017 – UPDATED

Back in 2016, we discussed the Fit4 damper upgrade with a lot of customers who were experiencing performance issues with the CTD Evolution Series forks. The CTD Evolution series forks were specced during 2013-2015 on several brand’s bikes, and served a purpose of an entry point into the Fox brand.  But, as with most things – It’s all relative. The performance of the CTD evolution... »

Can i convert my Fox shock to remote?

Can i convert my Fox shock to remote?

  Can i convert my Fox rear shock from a standard lever adjust, to a remote actuated unit? This is a common question that we get asked, and whilst the answer is Yes, it is not a simple bolt on conversion. Here’s why: A remote ready rear shock takes a specific eyelet that has a special cable ‘cam’ attached and built into it’s casting. These remote ready shocks also have... »

2Spring Lefty Upgrade

2Spring Lefty Upgrade

    In early September, Cannondale officially released a ‘mandatory service bulletin’, explaining changes moving forward to the SOLO air system in Lefty forks. Over the past 10 years, Cannondale have released various versions of the SOLO air assembly, some were more reliable than others, and some were more supple off the top of the stroke, than others. The new 2Spring Lefty u... »

Fox StepCast 32 – Team rider impressions

Cyclinic are proudly supporting some local riders with the new Fox 32 StepCast XC fork. The new fork from Fox has certainly raised the bar from a technical standpoint, from the groundbreaking weight, to the Fit4 E16 damper, and the super supple Na2 air spring assembly. Whilst we can talk the technical jargon all day about how we know they perform, here’s some perspectives from the riders. Sc... »

Fox IRD Fitted, and tested – Part 2

Fox IRD Fitted, and tested – Part 2

Back in November, we started our long term test with Fox’s IRD electronic lockout control system, suitably named IRD, standing for Intelligent Ride Dynamics. Although the IRD doesn’t do anything that your clever brain can’t, it does control the basic suspension functionality that we have all grown to accept as the norm on modern high end mountain bikes. The ability to control the... »

Fork lubes and ‘Juices’ – Why NOT to use them

Fork lubes and ‘Juices’ – Why NOT to use them

On the market these days, there’s virtually a product for every minute aspect of this sport, from special liquid to wash your chamois with, to discipline specific glasses and the vast array of tools to keep up with the ongoing changing standards. There is however one product that in our opinion – Is a true band-aid solution. As we’re talking suspension ‘talk’ on a dai... »

Fox Float 34 2012-2015 Na2 Air Spring Upgrade

Fox Float 34 2012-2015 Na2 Air Spring Upgrade

2012-2015 34mm FLOAT and TALAS forks can now be upgraded with a version of the award-winning FLOAT NA air spring system used in the 2015 and 2016 Fox 36, and all 2016 Fox 32, 34’s!. The FLOAT NA2 air spring system reduces the force to initiate travel (thanks to the removal of all coil ‘negative’ springs) and provides massively improved sensitivity and small bump compliance for al... »

Fox 2016 Fit4 Trail Tested

Fox 2016 Fit4 Trail Tested

Fox Fit4 Trail Tested. It’s been roughly 6 months or so since the first Fox Fit4 dampers were released as part of the 2016 range of Fox forks. Apart from slightly revised external controls/adjusters, there are major differences within the damper that allow for further improved small bump sensitivity, greater support through the entire stroke of the travel, and a much firmer lockout.  The Fit4’s co... »

Fox IRD Trail Tested – First Impressions

Fox IRD Trail Tested – First Impressions

Electronics and suspension is nothing new, but combining it with well tuned and well setup modern suspension systems is getting us a wee bit excited. 15 years ago, I first raced my ELO (Electronic-Lock-Out) Lefty for what would become a 6 year love affair with that particular model. It wasn’t overly supple, it had no real way of controlling the bottom-out resistance, nor did it feature any e... »
