With the flick of a three-position lever, the 2013 Fox forks redefine how you ride by offering an intuitive way to get the best damping characteristics for the trail conditions. The Fox Float 120 FIT with a 15QR axle is the recipient of Fox's latest dampening system, CTD, or climb, trail, descend. Fox forks have traditionally been featured packed, offering the ability to make any adjustments needed to tune the fork for any trail conditions. The only problem was the difficulty for the average rider to make knowledgeable tweaks to the forks. High- and low-speed compression, lockout threshold, preload, and rebound are all common adjustments, but, for the guy who wants to ride, and not relentlessly and aimlessly tune a fork, this can have a negative effect on performance and user experience. With CTD, one lever quickly and easily switches the fork's compression to ideal settings for the task at hand. The Climb setting adds plenty of low-speed compression to mitigate bobbing when standing on the pedals. Trail mode offers moderate low-speed compression to balance efficiency with optimal trail manners. It's also independently adjustable with three settings; soft, medium, and firm. Finally, the Descend setting features the perfect blend of high- and low-speed compression for plush action on steep and aggressive sections of trail. While longer travel Float forks, 130mm and above, have been revised to offer a more linear spring rate, Fox felt that a progressive spring is optimal for XC conditions. This helps to prevent bottoming out the 120mm of travel and ensures a more efficient ride for racing. What they have redesigned on these forks, besides the addition of CTD, is the lowers. The 2013 lowers are now 50 grams lighter than last year's comparable model.
