For aggressive riders, it's been hard to find a fork that's stiff enough to inspire confidence, without weighing you down on the ride back up. Luckily, though, Fox Racing Shox has been paying attention, which has resulted in the 34 Float 26in 160 FIT CTD with Trail Adjust Fork. Sitting half-way between the XC oriented 32 chassis, and the burly 36 platform, the 34 Float 160 is light enough to climb for hours without complaint, but it's purpose-built for jumps, drops, and rock-strewn trails. So, don't hold back. The 34 will take it in stride and gladly come back for more.

Trail mode has three sub-settings that allow you to tune exactly how much feedback that you need from your suspension. And, as you may have guessed, Descend mode provides the lightest compression damping for a plush ride. Depending on your tastes, many riders simply find the trail setting that works best for them, and don't feel the need to ...
