The Fox 38 fork is the bodybuilt version of its little sister Fox 36, the reference model in Enduro, but optimized for 160 to 180 mm travel.
The forks first of all, have many innovations: bleeders which allow to balance the internal pressures of the fork with the external pressures, ramps of circulation air/oil allowing them, a better management of the air pressures but also a lubrication of the upper joints optimized, a new arch offering a rigidity still improved, and finally a system of floating wheel axle which ensures a perfect alignment between the fork and the hub.
The Tee-Pivot-Spinner assembly has also been optimized by the brand since the fork features a tapered pivot with a differentiated internal diameter in the shape of an olbonde, a tee whose diameter has been increased to 58 mm and finally 38 mm plungers. As you can see, the rigidity of the Fox 38 will not disappoint you.
On the spring side, the Fox 38 uses the same air Float system dear to the brand, but with some improvements to increase progressiveness and reduce friction
. On the hydraulic side, the Fox 38 benefits from the new GRIP 2 cartridge whose VVC technology, for Variable Valve Control, until now reserved for the high speed rebound adjustment, is now extended to the high speed compression adjustment, improving even more the functioning of the most famous cartridge of the brand.

Float shock absorber:
The FLOAT air damper developed for the 32, 34 and 40 forks is lighter and reduces the force required to release. It offers excellent sensitivity over small bumps regardless of rider or pressure setting.
Similar to our FLOAT shocks, the new FLOAT system features self-balancing negative and positive chambers. This provides the appropriate pressure for each rider. The progressiveness of the damping curve is adjustable with air volume spacers so riders can fine-tune the behavior of the air shock.
