Completely redesigned for 2021, the Fox 40 is ready to take riders to the top step of the podium and down the gnarliest terrain imaginable.
With the new 40, Fox wanted to increase the smoothness, stiffness and tune-ability of their market leading downhill fork. On the smoothness front, the all new chassis has three key features. The new floating axle design allows for precise alignment of the hub and the upper and lower fork legs, ensuring the smoothest tracking of terrain. New channels in the back of the lower legs increase the air volume in the lowers to reduce the amount of unintended pressure ramping, as well as allow more oil flow to the dust wiper foam rings and bushings. Finally the bleed valves here allow for atmospheric pressure equalisation and release of pressure build up from long, rough runs, improving small bump sensitivity and responsiveness.
On the stiffness front, the floating axle helps with pinch bolts on each leg, but the bigger improvement is from the new lower leg arch design which gives more headtube clearance at full compression, plus optimises stiffness to weight ratios.
The GRIP2 damper has been updated, now featuring VVC, or Variable Valve Control on the high speed compression circuit. First introduced on the original GRIP2 damper for the 2019 model year in the high speed rebound circuit, VVC allows riders to change the stiffness of the high speed valve, without reducing total oil flow. It's like custom tuning your fork, without having to take it apart and the result is a much more predictable adjustment, better big hit absorption and less harshness.
"Factory" says it all. The best-of-the-best technology we have to offer is available in our Factory Series models with our buttery smooth, and ultra durable Genuine Kashima Coat. These products are World Cup proven.
