From what i have seen on the fox web page. All their forks seem prettty idenctical. A few minor technical changes and a few small travel differeces but they all appear the same.

Is this just coz i'm looking at them with beginners eyes but they also seem to really be only for xc as none seem to be able to take any sort of freeride or dirt jumping abuse.

I have seen the fox dh fork in a pic but its not on their site. Just loads of very simialr ''xc'' forks. I also know fox are supposed to make some of the best forks on the market i'm just wondering are they all as similar as i am lead to beleive.

Any comments

fox forks can be used for hard trail use, but they aren't quite full-blown freeride forks like the marzocchi Z1.

The difference is in the internals, the Float forks obviously aren't designed to be hucked off of drops, and the internals may not hold up to this.

The vanilla forks are designed to be ridden pretty hard.

The talas forks are in the middle.

The lowers are the same for all of the forks, the chassis are pretty much the same across the board.

In 2005 fox is comming out with their 20mm "freeride" fork.
