Specifically designed for XC racing, this high-quality suspension fork is part of Fox Suspension's renowned Factory Series with a build that's feature-packed and engineered to exceed the demands of Factory-level riders. It's equipped with an updated chassis that's 15% stiffer than the 32 standard model as well as a revised arch shape that offers improved head tube clearance with shorter rakes. Developed from the ground up to deliver uncompromised cross country racing performance, it's also kitted out with a Float EVOL air spring and a FIT4 3-Position damper for a high level of tuneability and control. Coming complete with a genuine Kashima upper tube coating that's slippery smooth and ultra-durable, this is a great choice of upgrade for dependable front-end suspension performance on the most demanding of racing conditions.
Returning with the same legendary suppleness and longevity, the EVOL air spring in 34’s now has an enlarged negative air spring to assist with mid-stroke support. The 34 SC also comes with the option to tune the negative air spring with a volume spacer.
In its fourth generation, Fox Suspension's patented FIT4 closed cartridge system provides three on-the-fly compression damping positions (Open, Medium, and Firm) to adapt to varying trail conditions. Factory Series forks feature an additional 22 clicks of low-speed compression adjustment in the Open mode, allowing riders to fine-tune their exact damping preferences.
Factory Series: “Factory” says it all – feature-packed and designed to exceed the demands of Factory-level riders. What we sell is what they race. Factory Series products feature slippery smooth, ultra-durable Genuine Kashima Coat.
Adjustments: Three on-the-fly compression damping positions Open, Medium, Firm. Additional low-speed compression (Open mode adjust) 22 clicks, Low-speed rebound 10 clicks.
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. This effect can have the unintended consequence of preventing full travel from being achieved. Fox Suspension'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: Stiffness-to-weight is the ultimate metric for bicycle design. Engineers invest countless hours poring over every ounce of material in an effort to optimize this critical ratio. 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. Modern frame designs and geometry trends require modern suspension design solutions. The arch design is designed to pair perfectly with modern trail bikes. Head tube profiles have grown larger and larger, and fork offsets shorter and shorter. Fox Suspension'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 modelling techniques helped us to create an organic lower leg shape that optimises stiffness with the absolute minimal amount of material.
