Fox Racing 38 K FLOAT Factory 160 Grip 2 Heritage Tapered Boost

The Fox 38 K Float 27.5″ and 29″ Factory Boost  with Kashima Coat, improved GRIP2 cartridge is a lightweight fork with 160mm travel – designed for Enduro riders.

High stiffness, innovative and lightweight: the new 38 K Float Factory 160 Grip2  from Fox

All the revolutionary features of the new 36 packed into a super-strong chassis specially designed for modern, hard Enduro racing with long suspension travel: The brand new 38 is at the starting line! Whatever gets in its way, it will never tire of panting for even more speed.

The award-winning 38 gets a huge performance boost with the improved FIT GRIP2 4-way adjustable damper. Equipped with the patent-pending dual Variable Valve Control (VVC) high- and low-speed rebound adjuster, improved compression damping and less friction overall, the 38 offers a new level of performance and adjustability that matches the X2 shocks. The high-speed compression stage and high-speed rebound stage is now easily adjustable with 8 clicks. “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.External steps in lower casting reduce weight.

The new damper shares its roots with the original GRIP architecture, but has been seriously enhanced with all-new technology: 4-way adjustability, VVC high-speed rebound circuit, high-performance mid-valve, and overall friction-reducing treatments.

Kashima Coat;
Buttery-smooth, Genuine Kashima Coat’s distinctive gold color is backed by its high performance attributes – properties that provide an exceptionally smooth feel and extreme durability. All Factory Series Forks – Now available on the entire Factory Series fork lineup. Buttery-smooth, Genuine Kashima Coat is available only from FOX – the Kashima Coat logo is individually pad-printed on each stanchion.
FLOAT Airspring;
The FLOAT air spring system developed for 32, 34 and 40 is lighter and reduces the force to initiate travel, providing excellent sensitivity and small bump compliance for all riders and pressure settings. Similar to our FLOAT rear shocks, the new FLOAT system features positive and negative air springs that automatically equalize during use to give each rider the right pressure balance. The progressiveness of the spring curve can be adjusted via air volume spacers, allowing riders to fine-tune the feel of the air spring.
A more linear spring curve gives EVOL forks and shocks plushness off the top, extra mid-stroke support, and more tunable bottom-out progression, allowing riders to tap into the ideal pairing of front and rear-end feel. The EVOL technology from rear shocks is now integrated into all FOX forks. EVOL increases negative air spring volume, specifically positioned and sized for optimum small bump sensitivity.;
Air Volume Spacers;
The progressiveness of the FLOAT air spring curve can be adjusted via air volume spacers, allowing riders to fine-tune the feel of the air spring.

Variable Valve Control (VVC)

FIT GRIP2 now features high-speed rebound using the novel and patent-pending approach: Variable Valve Control (VVC). It’s a revolutionary way to adjust the high-speed rebound circuit, effectively changing valve stiffness rather than adding preload. Unlike normal adjusters that add valve preload, VVC uses a leaf spring to alter valve flex in the high-speed rebound circuit. The adjuster provides the same effect as revalving high-speed rebound but without the need for damper disassembly.
