Next Generation FLOAT X: Improved from the inside out.
New for 2016, the Float X features three on-the-fly settings (Open, Medium, Firm,) permitting riders to adapt to a wider array of terrain including, wicked descents, technical singletrack, and steep climbs. Additionally, a new damping tune improves bump compliance and ride control.
Also making its appearance on the Float X 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 rock solid 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 juicy cherry on top!
