The 2015 FOX Racing Shox 32 FLOAT 27. 5 120 FIT CTD Fork represents what we love about modern trail bikes. The classic chassis returns for this year, just as light and robust as it ever was, which means that you won't have to give up confident descending to achieve a lightweight bike. And while it looks similar to previous models, the reworked internals have had friction reduced to pretty much nil, which means the smoothest suspension action you've experienced yet. If you despise compromise, this is a fantastic way to have your cake and eat it too. Like recent generations of Fox's Factory series forks, the FLOAT controls its stroke with the venerable FIT damper. The 'FIT' acronym stands for Fox Isolated Technology. And, unlike a traditional open bath system, FIT means that the damper fluid is sealed in an air-tight bladder. This prevents contamination, which improves the consistency of the damper on long descents.Long-time Fox riders will immediately notice Fox's Climb, Trail, Descend damper adjustments. And while it's familiar, improvements have been made for the 2015 model year. The Trail setting now has seven sub-settings, as opposed to the previous three. That translates into more fine-tuning of your low-speed compression, to perfectly balance support and suppleness. As ever, Climb mode provides the most damping for a near locked-out feel, with a bit of cushion for any unexpected hard hits. And Descend mode provides the lightest compression damping for a plush ride.The 32 FLOAT comes with refined Kashima coated stanchions, which offer reduced friction, and in turn better small-bump compliance, than the previous Kashima coat. Essentially, the gold outer layer remains the same--what has changed is the base anodizing, which results in an even smoother surface than before. This is in addition to a new, lower-friction lubricating oil, which adds to the dramatically smoother ride. In addition to the friction reducing benefits, Kashima coating is harder than stand...
