FOX damper 2021 Float DPS FS 3-Pos EVOL LV Factory | metric
The Factory Series Fox Float DPS shocks are the 1st choice for World Cup champions.
The high-performance dampers from Fox have been consistently redesigned for even better downhill performance. DPS stands for Dual Piston System, the damper is made up of two pistons and should offer a hard lockout, make no compromises in damping behavior and be more precise than its predecessor. This means that it can be optimally adapted to as many different intended use as possible.
The valve design of the previous model has already been changed, which enables an improved rebound and compression flow. Furthermore, the low-friction Kashima coating reduces the breakaway torque.
The damper has the enlarged "LV" air chamber, which leads to a more linear spring characteristic.
Dual Piston System (DPS)
This system has three driving settings (open medium firm). This means that the damper can be adapted to the relevant terrain at any time by the driver. The new double piston design offers full lockout, better driving control and unmatched efficiency. The damper's mode of operation in lockout mode differs significantly from that in open and medium mode. In open mode, the damper can be fine-tuned in 3 stages to suit the driving style.
The air chamber called EVOL with increased volume for the negative air chamber. EVOL stands for "Extra Volume". This adjustment should also have a positive effect on the suspension quality by reducing the breakaway torque of the damper. This leads to better traction and softer response. At the same time, the characteristic curve in the middle travel range can be raised a little, which becomes more linear. For example, the rear triangle with the Fox Float shock should become significantly more powerful.
Metric installation dimensions
The damper manufacturers want to standardize standards by introducing metric dimensions. There should not be so many different variants in the future. In addition, a similar linear gradation of the various length and stroke dimensions is sought, as is already the case with suspension forks. Incidentally, these dampers offer more space inside because, with the stroke being the same length, the hole spacing has usually been slightly increased. This enables the function and reliability to be optimized.
