Fox’s 2018 34 Float 29 130 Fit4 Factory Fork 51 enables the dedicated trail rider to charge as hard as they want, up and down. This is the 100 millimeter standard spacing version. Lying between the ethereal weight of the XC-race 32 and the all-mountain stiffness and long travel of the 36, the 34 is light enough to rip up climbs and weave through flowing corners, but has the travel and the constitution for plowing through technical sections as well.
Like the rest of Fox’s line-up, the 34’s Fit4 damper and air spring have been updated for 2018; the damper getting a revised shim stack and the air spring being upgraded to an EVOL (Extra Volume) design. Increasing the negative spring’s air volume, along with the updated FIT4 damper, creates a smoother stroke, with Fox’s most responsive small bump sensitivity yet, but still keeps you from diving through your travel when you’re putting the power down.
The Factory model’s Kashima coated stanchions are resilient and slippery, resisting scratches and helping the stanchions slide past bushings and seals more easily. Fox’s FIT4 damper has Open, Medium, and Firm compression settings that provide more adjustment, sensitivity, and control. In Open mode, the low speed compression has 22 clicks that range from almost overlapping the Medium setting, all the way to fully plush and open. A refined rebound system allows for increased flow, which improves recovery that occurs during deep stroke hits.
