PERFORMANCE

The distinct shape of the lower leg design isn't just for looks. The 32 Step-Cast (SC) chassis uses a narrow stance to save weight and the step design makes room for the spokes and brake rotor. The 32 SC features 32 mm upper tubes and ample bushing overlap for a quality ride and the hollowed out lower legs provide even more weight savings.

"Factory" says it all. The best-of-the-best technology we have to offer is available in our Factory Series models with our buttery smooth, and ultra durable Genuine Kashima Coat. These products are World Cup proven.

FIT GRIP damper (with fewer adjustments and different architecture) replaces the FIT4 dampers found in 32 Factory forks. A Performance Series graphics package is found on these forks to tie in the black-on-black look.

TECHNOLOGY

NEW FOR 2018

FIT4 DAMPER TUNE

New damper tune is found in all 34 and 36 FIT4 forks. A reconfigured shim stack provides more sensitivity while maintaining support when needed during aggressive riding.

In its fourth generation, our patented FIT4 closed cartridge system provides three on-the-fly compression damping positions—Open, Medium, and Firm—to adapt to varying trail conditions. Factory Series forks feature an additional 22 clicks of low-speed compression adjust in the Open mode, allowing riders to fine-tune their exact damping preferences.

NEW FOR 2018

PERFORMANCE ELITE

Performance Elite forks are now available in the 34, 36, and 40 fork families. The 34 and 36 forks retain the same adjustments, dampers, weight, and 7000 series aluminum upper tubes as Factory Series, but have black anodized upper tubes instead of Genuine Kashima Coat. The 40 has a different damper (with fewer adjustments) but continues the black ano upper tube theme. A Performance Elite graphics package is found on these forks to tie in the black-on-black look.

NEW FOR 2018

EVOL HAS EVOLVED

A more linear spring curve gives EVOL forks and shocks plushness off the top, extra mid-stroke support, and more tunable bottom-out progression, allowing riders to tap into the ideal pairing of front and rear-end feel.

SHOCKS The new lighter one-piece EVOL air sleeve was designed for each shock size (imperial and metric) to balance internal forces, and has maximized bushing overlap to reduce friction during “real world” forces like side-loading and twisting.

FORKS EVOL technology from rear shocks is now integrated into all FOX forks. EVOL increases negative air spring volume, specifically positioned and sized for optimum small bump sensitivity.

GRIP DAMPER

Inspired from moto, the new GRIP damper uses our FIT sealed cartridge technology combined with a coil-sprung, independent floating piston. GRIP allows excess oil to purge through specially designed ports at the top of the damper to maintain consistent damping and increase durability. Performance Series forks provide Open, Medium, and Firm modes with additional micro-adjust between settings.

GENUINE
KASHIMA COAT

Buttery smooth

Kashima's distinctive gold color is backed by its high performance attributes—properties that provide an exceptionally smooth feel and extreme durability.


MEDIA QUOTES
Bicycling

"Remarkably, it seems like FOX was able to pull a significant amount of weight out of its premier XC-race fork with no penalty. Though it's pitched towards an increasingly-niche arm of the sport, the 32 SC's manners are so good it's impressive outside the confines of a race course too."

Bike Radar

"Strong first impressions: Although we've only had a few rides on the fork, our initial impressions are good. The fork is certainly light, comparing well to previous iterations and also when compared to other XC forks... we found the front wheel stuck doggedly to the ground, offering impressive grip and control, even with slightly higher tyre pressures than we might usually run."

Singletrack

"They're very capable of the kind of hits you'll see on any cross country or marathon race course and they can be infinitely tuned to suit weight and riding style. The forks use the well regarded FOX FIT4 damper with a specific damping tune for this model."

Bike Rumor

"After my first few rides, I'm impressed by FOX's new XC fork. They pack a lot of performance into a small package that doesn't give up practical performance in its quest to be one of the lightest damped suspension forks on the market."
