NEW FOR 2018

DPS REFINED

Dual Piston System

Our highest performing inline shock gets refined. Updated valve design improves both rebound and compression flow, allowing for active and supple Open and Medium modes without compromising Firm mode stiffness.

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.

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.

Flow Mountain Bike

"We tested on the kind of trail where you do a fair bit of teeth clenching and praying. It was here that the new 34 and DPS shock really shone, delivering the kind of stability you don't normally expect for a bike with just 127mm of rear travel. We're accustomed to that awful bucking feeling of running out of front travel right at the exact moment your rear shock starts to reach full extension, but our SB5 kept things bizarrely composed."
