Fox's Float CTD Boost Valve w/Trail Adjust XV is one of the most tunable shocks out there, while also being user friendly. The CTD switch easily adjusts the level of firmness with the flick of a lever, from full-firm for climbing to wide open for the downhills. With the Boost Valve, you get DH plushness with XC pedaling efficiency. To increase the DH capabilities, this XV version uses a larger air sleeve for increased oil flow to deliver fade-free performance on even the longest, rowdiest downhills. To balance this great damping, you can also dial in the rebound to get the best of both worlds in a super-light package. And, the Kashima-Coated stanchion and body ensures buttery smooth suspension action.
For the best suspension yet, Fox has brought Miyaki Company of Japan’s legendary Kashima Coat to its shock bodies. 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 shock is way more reactive, soaks up even tiny bumps and lasts longer with less maintenance, too.
