Fox's 32 F100 FIT RLC forks may be among the lightest on the block, yet they're also among the toughest. Fox's renowned chassis delivers both strength and stiffness and when combined with the 15mm through-axle you end up with surgical steering precision. With adjustable rebound, low-speed compression and lockout threshold, you can tune your ride to your preferences and current trail conditions. The FIT damper increases your tire's traction by reducing the un-sprung weight of the fork so the fork responds to terrain faster. Combine that with the gold Kashima-coated stanchions and you have a fork that knows what the trail is doing before you do. The lever-actuated lockout is easy to engage on the fly, too, so the F-series climbs as well as it descends.
For the best suspension yet, Fox has brought Miyaki Company of Japan’s legendary Kashima Coat to its fork stanchions. You can recognize it by the unique gold color. This coating, which is four times harder than hard-anodized aluminum, made its name in car and motorcycle suspensions and drivetrains, and now you can enjoy all its amazing benefits. These include super low friction, excellent abrasion resistance and durability, and significantly better lubrication characteristics. In short, this fork is way more reactive, soaks up even tiny bumps and lasts longer with less maintenance, too.
For maximum steering control and precision suspension action, this fork includes the 15QR system. Fox and Shimano developed this system to improve the lives of cross-country and all-mountain riders everywhere. Its 15mm through-axle QR drastically increases the fork's stiffness-to-weight ratio, is lighter than a 20mm through-axle, way stiffer than a standard dropout and quick release, and is tool-free for fast wheel changes.
