FOX shock 2021 Float X2 FS Factory Trunnion | metric
Completely revised for the new season, the X2 double chamber damper is an absolute milestone on the damper market. Due to the separately adjustable rebound and compression levels in the high speed and low speed range, this damper can be adapted to a wide variety of downhill courses to offer you a performance that you have never experienced before.
In the predecessor model, the air chamber has already been optimized so that it can be filled with a maximum air pressure of 300 PSI. This reduces the risk of a breakdown in extreme jumps. Furthermore, the design of the valve has been changed to avoid air loss when inflating. New low-friction seals and the optimization of the inner construction for more torsional stiffness also improve the already sensitive response behavior.
A small-sized expansion tank enables the damper to be integrated more easily in various frame constructions.
The GRIP 2 damping system adopted from the suspension forks enables the optimal adjustment of your chassis.
This damper is specially designed for mount according to the Trunnion Standard. In this case, the upper fastening sits on the side of the damper and not in a damper eye, as is normal. This made it possible to shorten the overall length without causing space problems inside.
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.
Variable valve control (VVC)
Fox has put all of its knowledge into this cushioning. Based on the GRIP 2 damper of the suspension forks, the high and low speed compression and the high and low speed rebound can be set separately. The setup must be carried out carefully, but afterwards offers endless driving fun on any surface.
With the integrated variable valve control (VVC) system, the sensitivity of the high-speed rebound is varied by means of a leaf spring and not by changing the preload. This requires a finely metered function and modification.
In addition, attention was paid to the use of low-friction and coated materials during the entire development process. This allows a very fine response and significantly increases comfort.
MCU bottom-out bumper
This end stop made of Micro Cellular Urethane foam does not absorb oil and improves the spring characteristic in the end progression. The X2 Float and DHX2 dampers now harmonize optimally in bikes with linear rear kinematics.
The Kashima coating for a smooth driving experience is exclusively available from FOX. It offers outstanding overall performance, ensures minimal friction and optimal responsiveness with maximum durability.
Metric installation dimensions
By introducing metric dimensions, the damper manufacturers want to standardize the standards. 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.
