With 160mm of travel the 34 gives you Enduro performance but at a All-Nountain weight in a 650B fork. Designed for Trail, All Mountain use with a 15QR thru axle system which gives you confidence when you're deep in the rocks, roots, and ruts. The Kashima coated stanchions only available on Fox forks provide an exceptionally smooth feel and extreme durability. The Fox 34 Float 160 is the fork option for riders looking to build up a lightweight bike with a 160mm fork.
Fox's CTD (Climb/Trail/Descend)is their integrated ride dynamics system that makes it easy to set up your fork to work for unprecedented performance in all types of terrain. It's intuitive to use and can be instantly activated while riding.
The firmest low-speed compression setting is activated for maximum pedaling efficiency. The Climb mode setting of each fork is optimized for its specific travel the shorter the travel, the firmer the ride tune and feel.
Moderate low-speed compression setting is activated for an optimal blend of pedaling efficiency and bike control on variable terrain. Factory Series products offer three levels of Trail-mode adjust.
Low-speed compression setting activates to full-open for maximum control and plush performance on steep, aggressive descents.
Adjustable Trail Mode
To further fine-tune your ride, Factory Series forks with Trail adjust offer an extra 3 clicks of Trail mode adjustability. Once the lever is set to Trail mode, the soft, medium, and firm settings allow you to dial in performance with the perfect level of low-speed compression damping.
FIT (FOX Isolated Technology)
Air and oil do mix, and in the world of suspension, it degrades performance. Our isolation technology employs a bladder system that simply keeps the oil and air from mixing to provide optimal performance in all riding extremes. The FIT CTD damper offers riders a wide range of adjustments in a lighter weight damper that provides unparalleled front wheel traction, complete with rebound, Climb mode, Trail mode, and Descend mode.
FLOAT Air Spring Curves
Fox's ultimate goal with the FLOAT air spring is to mimic the linear curve of a coil spring. The secret to achieving near-perfect linear spring curves, while maintaining bottom-out resistance in each travel setting, is focusing on both ends of the fork's travel path.
The result are:
Less initial breakaway force
Longer negative spring and reduced air spring compression ratio for a more linear feel
Optimized use of overall travel
More travel with less ramping at the end
Buttery-smooth, Genuine Kashima Coat is available only from FOX Racing Shox. Its distinctive gold color is backed by its high performance attributesproperties that provide an exceptionally smooth feel and extreme durability.
Don't sacrifice performance by going with a standard QR skewer. Fox has teamed up with Shimano to create an axle that is extremely light and stiff, in a tool-free design. You'll gain a ton of confidence when you're deep in the rocks, roots, and ruts.
The 15QR lever
a) Cutout in lever reduces weight and improves functionality
b) Lighter weight forged lever
c) Lighter weight forged axle shaft
With a clockable thread you never have to adjust your QR skewer nut to find the perfect tension. It also produces a 25% increase in transverse shear stiffness meaning the fork legs function as a single unit, improving suspension performance and front end confidence when forces on the wheel are not even on each side and 15% increase in torsional stiffness also increases rider confidence.
