Fox Racing Shox
Fox Racing Shox 34 Factory 29" GRIP2 - 44mm Offset - 2022
The all-new Fox 34 is smoother, lighter, more tunable, and more capable than ever before; when it comes to a do-it-all trail fork the 34 is in a class of its own. Factory Series products feature slippery smooth, ultra-durable Genuine Kashima Coat.
Lower leg bypass channels
As a fork compresses, the air volume within the lower legs decreases, increasing air pressure. The more the fork compresses, the more pressure increases, which can have the unintended consequence of preventing full travel. 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.
Lower leg arch
The all-new 34 pulls out all the stops, shaving every possible gram while making sure not to compromise the stiffness or strength requirements of modern trail riding and the arch design is to pair perfectly with modern trail bikes. Head tube profiles have grown larger and larger, and fork offsets shorter and shorter. Fox's new arch shape takes this need into account by jutting forward to provide ample headtube clearance at full compression. State-of-the-art computer modeling techniques helped them to create an organic lower leg shape that optimizes stiffness with the absolute minimal amount of material.
Negative Air Spacer
There’s a negative air spring volume spacer option in the new 34 SC, you can run it if you want more firm off the top XC race feel, or remove it if you want more of a supple trail feel for Downcountry-style riding. Forks set to 120mm from the factory, don’t come with the volume spacer installed. Fork’s set to 100mm from the factory do come with the volume spacer installed. A 110mm air spring kit is available separately and can be installed with or without the negative volume spacer (sold separately). The lower leg assembly and air spring must be removed in order to in-stall or remove the negative volume spacer. The spacer itself simply clips on to the air spring shaft.
The GRIP2 damper is the benchmark for unparalleled ride quality and ultra-precise adjustability. GRIP2 includes the patented Variable Valve Control (VVC) technology which allows for external fine-tuning of suspension performance. GRIP2 achieves with the twist of a knob what typically requires the time consuming and complicated task of completely disassembling and reassembling the fork.
