[Press release] A completely redesigned 36 enduro fork headlines the lineup, along with updates to the rest of the line that are a direct result of the 34 RAD project during the 2013 race season.

FOX is celebrating its 40th anniversary since Bob Fox started redefining ride dynamics in the motocross world in 1974. Our entire fork lineup has received attention, with significant updates being made to the 32 and 34 models and a completely redesigned 36 series—some of the most exciting product offerings we’ve ever introduced. FOX will also be offering special edition stealth black forks and heritage graphic kits that will fit any FOX fork or shock.

In 1974, Bob set out on a quest to build a better motocross suspension. His approach was to work with top athletes at the racetrack to help them improve. Our current-day Racing Applications Development (RAD) program continues to work with athletes at the top of their game on some of the most demanding terrain around the world.

Several key developments from the RAD program have been used in the 2015 product line. New compression tunes, redesigned damper seals, and lubrication oil all add up to performance improvements.

• 32 & 34 forks have updated damping tunes for better small bump compliance and traction

• 32 & 34 Factory models offer on-the-fly CTD damping adjustment and 7-click Trail mode fine tuning

• 32 & 34 & 36 forks feature a redesigned seal head architecture that virtually eliminates breakaway force

• 32, 34, 36, & 40 use an advanced lubrication oil that integrates Molybdenum from the Kashima Coat formula

OUR LIGHTEST 36 RC2 FORK EVER: REDESIGNED FOR 26, 27.5 AND 29” WHEEL SIZES

The model year 2015 36 offers rigidity and improved traction for all-mountain riding and enduro racing in a new lighter chassis. Also of note is its updated geometry, new convertible thru-axle design that works both with 15mm and 20mm, purpose-built RC2 damper, and redesigned air spring system that equalizes rider weight for increased traction.

• Lighter: half-pound weight savings over its predecessor (starting at 4.19lbs/1901g)

• 36-specific RC2 damper: redesigned valve system provides better small bump compliance, reduced friction, better traction, and wider tuning range

• Redesigned air spring system: equalizes rider weight for increased traction

• Convertible thru-axle design: works with 15mm and 20mm axles
