32 STEP-CAST AX — Explore the lesser-travelled route, rally loose descents, and brave the elements with the new Adventure Cross (AX) fork, featuring a short-travel specific FLOAT EVOL air spring.
The FIT 4 damper features three on-the-fly settings —Open, Medium, and Firm— making the AX adjustable for any adventure you find yourself on, planned or not. A lightweight 32 Step-Cast chassis with lockout means you'll still get great power transfer on those long stretches of fire road and pavement. With 40 mm of travel, you'll have predictable cornering and descending when the route gets rough.

With one exception so far, none of us can run the post at its full travel, so we had a few internals cut down for those of us that can run a 31.6 or 30.9 post on our gravel bikes.
The internals of a 100 mm post were hacked down to have a total drop of only 55 mm, actuated by the front Shimano shifter (which was also modified to active our seatpost properly.)
The modifications made to our project bike are for our internal testing purposes only, and should not be tried at home. We do not advocate modifying product beyond its intended use.
