Smooth over nasty rock gardens and stiff on the climbs, Fox's Float X CTD LV w/Trail Adjust gives you the perfect amount of suspension for every moment. Precise damping for climbing, ripping trail, and descending is quickly is a quick flip of the CTD lever away. The large-volume, integrated air sleeve and eyelet design reduces weight and cools better on fast, wild descents. And with Trail Adjust you have an additional three travel positions to choose from. With Kashima-Coated stanchion and body, you get DH plushness with XC pedaling efficiency. To balance this great damping, you can also dial in the rebound to get the best of both worlds.
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.
