For the 2016 model year, the lower weight, higher stiffness, and mechanical redesign we saw in last year's FOX Racing Shox 36 Float have migrated to the 32 Float 27. 5 100 3Pos Adj FIT4 Fork. This is great news for FOX's XC devotees, as the technologies and upgrades pioneered by the 36 inspired our own reviewer to claim that the rest of the industry will have to aim VERY high to surpass it. In addition to a few tweaks to structural minutia, the biggest change tested on the 36 and adopted by the new 32 Float is that the Float Air Spring at its heart is now dual chambered and self equalizing. Gone is the negative coil of old, which makes for weight savings that take full advantage of the slim, fast stanchions' reduced bulk. If you want the fork to ramp up harder, you can customize the spring's compression curve with internal spacers to fit the 32 Float to your specific tastes. Fit is something of a key word for FOX's reworked 32 Float line. The new model year's other major addition, the Fit4 damper adjustment system, highlights this focus on rider specific fit by incorporating the word in its title. Instead of the overly prescriptive Climb, Trail, and Descend settings of CTD, the new 3 position Fit4 system toggles between the more descriptive Firm, Medium, and Open settings in a move that as the name suggests fits the fork's function to your needs. While this change may read like an exercise in semantics, it actually entails a radical realignment of the 32 Float's capabilities. While the 32 Float's 4 inches of travel aren't exactly big hit material, the new Open setting has been expanded to encompass the range once divided between Descend and Trail, and the damper's 22 adjustable sub settings are now distributed across the more inclusive Open setting instead of the limited Trail. This lets you keep the front end plush in order to take full advantage of the fork's high riding tendencies, combining better small bump compliance with more confident tracking ac...
