Product Info

Go big with a new Fox Racing 38 Float Performance Fork! Harnessing the mysterious powers of sorcery and math, Fox increased the diameter of their solid 36mm forks to 38mm, greatly improving their stiffness. Bigger stanchions not only mean more stiffness, but you run lower pressures in this more voluminous fork, meaning increased sensitivity too. Fox's solid Fit GRIP damper gets the call in this model, bringing compression adjust with the flick of a top-mounted lever. Hop on board, this is the future of single-crown forks!

New Lower Leg ChannelsAs a fork compresses, the air volume within the lower legs decreases, increasing air pressure. The more the fork compresses, the more pressure increases. This effect can have the unintended consequence of preventing full travel from being achieved. Fox's lower leg channels help alleviate this issue by dramatically increasing air volume within the lower legs and thereby reducing the amount of additional unintended pressure ramping. Another benefit of these channels is that lower leg bath oil is circulated to the upper reaches of the lower legs, continuously lubricating the foam rings and bushings as the fork compresses and extends through its travel.

New Lower Leg ArchStiffness-to-weight is the ultimate metric for bicycle design. Engineers invest countless hours poring over every ounce of material in an effort to optimize this critical ratio. Our all-new lower leg design pulls out all the stops, shaving every possible gram while making sure not to compromise stiffness or strength requirements of modern enduro and gravity style riding.


FLOAT EVOL Air SpringEVOL technology increases negative air spring volume, optimizing small bump sensitivity. EVOL’s linear spring curve delivers plushness off the top, extra mid-stroke support, and more tunable bottom-out progression.

Floating AxleFloating axles might look similar to other axles, but in fact they offer a distinct performance advantage due to their unique ability to match the exact width of the fork’s wheel mounting surface precisely to the front hub flange spacing, thus creating perfect chassis alignment and eliminating unwanted friction between the upper and lower fork legs. Floating axles provide much smoother suspension movement throughout the entire range of the fork’s travel, notably improving sensitivity and overall ride quality.

Optional Fox 36/38 Mud Guard with Sturdy 4-point Direct-mount Attachment


GRIP DamperInspired from moto, the GRIP damper uses the FIT sealed cartridge technology combined with a coil-sprung, independent floating piston. GRIP allows excess oil to purge through specially designed ports at the top of the damper to maintain consistent damping and increase durability.
