The previous generation of FOX Racing Shox’s 32 Drift 29 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork has been proven under the demanding engine of a certain five-time World Champion, who we will just refer to as Mr. Absalon. This success means our excitement at the news of a whole overhaul was once tempered with a bit of unease. We were not sure that this sort of winning formula might be improved on, but by adopting the lower weight, higher stiffness, and mechanical redesign of last year’s 36 Drift, The brand new 32 Drift fork manages to shame its well-decorated predecessor. Along with a couple of tweaks to structural minutia, the biggest change featured at the new 32 Drift is that the Drift Air Spring at its heart is now dual-chambered and self-equalizing. Gone is the negative coil of old, which makes for weight savings that take full good thing about the slim, fast stanchions’ reduced bulk. If you need the fork to ramp-up harder, you’ll be able to customize the spring’s compression curve with internal spacers to suit the 32 Drift for your specific tastes. Fit is something of a key word for FOX’s reworked 32 Drift line. The brand new model year’s other major addition, the Fit4 damper adjustment system, highlights this center of attention on rider-specific fit by incorporating the word in its title. As a substitute of the overly prescriptive Climb, Trail, and Descend settings of CTD, The brand new 3-position Fit4 system toggles between the more descriptive Firm, Medium, and Open settings in a move that — as the name suggests — fits the fork’s function for your needs. Even as this alteration might read like an exercise in semantics, it in fact entails a radical realignment of the 32 Drift’s capabilities. The 32 Drift’s nearly five inches of Commute push 29ers into the lush suspension game, and The brand new Open setting has been expanded to encompass the variability once divided between Descend and Trail. The damper’s 22 adjustable sub settings are actually distributed around the more inclusive Open setting As a substitute of the limited Trail. This permits you to keep the front end plus…
