With its new Dual Piston System (DPS) and EVOL air sleeve, the Fox Float DPS Rear Shock can be thought of as a shiny new hand to guide you through rough patches of trail and wicked descents.
New for 2016 as its name suggests, the Float DPS features a dual piston valve design with three on-the-fly settings (Open, Medium, Firm,) permitting riders to adapt to a wider array of terrain. This state of the art design offers complete lockout without sacrificing bump compliance, ride control, and efficiency. As a Fox Factory series shock, this model of the DPS features an additional 3 clicks of low-speed compression adjust while in the “Open” position.
Also making its appearance in 2016, is Fox’s Extra Volume, or EVOL, air sleeve that greatly increases negative air volume to produce a softer initial stroke, adding sensitivity and improving small bump compliance. The progressiveness of the spring curve can be tailored by using air volume spacers, enabling the feel of the air-spring to be fine-tuned.
Finishing off this gem of a rear shock, is Fox’s signature Kashima coating to ensure the travel is silky smooth. Kashima coating is a hard anodizing process that fills in micro pores that may exist in the material, creating a smoother surface in comparison to a hard anodization on other versions. Its distinctive gold color is backed by its high performance attributes including extreme durability as well as an extremely smooth feel. The whole purpose and value of the Kashima coating is in its friction reduction properties, while the golden aesthetic value is always a plump cherry on top!
