FOX 32 Float FIT CTD with Trail Adjust 140mm Fork 2013
For 2013, the majority of the Fox Racing Shox XC and trail lineups get CTD treatment, and the 32 Float is no exception. An acronym for “Climb, Trail, Descend,” CTD takes the guesswork out of on-the-fly adjustments to low-speed compression damping with three presets. Climb offers the firmest platform, to minimize bob under hard pedaling. Descend mode offers the most active platform, making it plush and reactive over rough terrain. Trail aims to be a dynamic blend, offering moderate damping designed to be optimal for the widest range of conditions. Trail is also the only mode offering additional fine-tuning with Trail Adjust, allowing for three levels of damping in Trail mode. Float models with more than 130 millimeters of travel feature a more linear spring rate for a more reactive feeling on rough trails, newly butted stanchion tubes and updated lowers with an arch assembly aimed at reducing weight while maintaining rigidity.Air mountain bike suspension forks for everything from XC racing to flying at the bike park-super-light and durable with travel ranging from 100mm to 180mm.

Smooth action and I struggle to come up with a complaint. Valving is dead on for the three settings of climb, trail and descend. Although I leave my shock in the hardest setting (climb) for a majority of my riding. Trail setting is not too soft and gives you awesome feedback. Descend is if you need all the travel and plan on smacking some rocks and roots, but honestly, it is a little too softy for the amount of feedback I want, so it feels lazy. It isn't lazy, just not where I want it to be. 4 Stars because of the price, but seriously, this is the last shock you will buy. It is worth it!
