2011 Fox Racing Shox Forks And Shocks Unveiled

Fox Racing Shocks have unveiled there 2011 model year mountain biking products at Sea Otter.



What  this means is lots of tasty new forks and rear shocks will be available later in the to buy as upgrades or as OEM on 2011 model bikes when they hit the stores from roughly October onwards. It's all about evolution for the 2011 model products and the application of existing technology and ideas in a smart way.

Forks:
High end Fox models feature gold coloured Kashima Stanchions. This is new technology to the MTB side of Fox’s operations and was developed by the Miyaki Company of Japan and offers superior durability, hardness, and less friction. What is it? Simply put, its a form of anodising where Teflon is impregnated into, and below, the surface of the fork stanchion.

The word is also out that OEM forks will now carry different decals and colours to stem the tide of "grey market" product being sold on the sly.  Fox have not revealed what the differences will be yet.

Good news for 29er fans out there with Fox launching a Talas 29er which adjust between 120mm and 95mm and features the redesigned FIT Terralogic damper technology found in their 26-inch wheel models. Terralogic provides a terrain-sensing transformation from full plush travel to pedalling efficiency firm with absolutely no response lag. Of course, the 32 TALAS 29 is also available in Fox’s industry benchmark FIT RLC model. Stanchion tubes with Kashima Coat improve suspension sensitivity and durability.

The optional 15QR thru axle system is now lighter, further enhancing Fox’s World Cup proven chassis’ steering precision and front-end traction that riders expect from FOX Racing Shox.

Fox VAN RC Rear Shock:
Up the back the VAN R option is gone leaving an improved VAN RC, which obviously (because of the C) offers externally adjustable low-speed compression damping, linear low-speed rebound adjustability, and DHX based oil capacity.
