American brand Fox offers suspension-related products for ATV, bike, moto, off road, snow, truck and UTV. Its mountain bike range features forks and shocks for all types of riding styles from XC to downhill, 4X, freeride and all-mountain, plus the D.O.S.S. seatpost, which syncs with front and rear suspension settings for instant performance optimization based on the terrain.
In 1974, founder Bob Fox started racing his products in motocross, but the company did not become involved in mountain biking until 1993, when Fox shocks were part of the specification on Cannondale’s first line of dual suspension bikes. In 2001, Fox entered the front suspension market with Fox Forx, and, ten years later, Fox team rider Aaron Gwin became the first American man ever to win the World Cup Downhill title, and the first to win five races in the series.
Models in the current range of Fox forks include the superlight air Float, the travel-adjustable air Talas, super-plush coil Van, and the legendary dual-crown, downhill 40 with eight inches of travel. Shock models include the Float, featuring CTD (‘Climb, Trail, and Descend’) technology, and the DHX, the big daddy of downhill mountain bike coil suspension.
The Fox bike team features many of the world’s leading mountain bikers, including Gwin, Darren Berrecloth, Thomas Vanderham, Mark Weir and Tracy Moseley. Fox also provides forks and shocks to teams such as GT, Santa Cruz Syndicate, Trek C3, Yeti, Luna, Norco and Commencal.
