The award-winning 36 gets a huge performance boost with our new GRIP2 4-way adjustable damper. With patent-pending Variable Valve Control (VVC) high- and low-speed rebound adjuster, improved compression damping and less friction overall, the 2019 36 offers a new level of performance and adjustability that matches our X2 shocks.
Performance Elite forks retain the same adjustments, dampers, weight, and 7000 series aluminium upper tubes as Factory Series, but have black anodized upper tubes instead of Genuine Kashima Coat. A Performance Elite graphics package is found on these forks to tie in the black-on-black look.
Next-Generation Sealed Cartridge FIT Damper. GRIP2 is our next-evolution sealed cartridge FIT system, our highest performing gravity-focused damper. 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.
4-WAY ADJUSTABILITY: The revolutionary design of the GRIP2 damper provides independently adjustable high- and low-speed compression and high- and low-speed rebound. In addition to offering incredible damper control, the adjustments also have a wider compression damping range to increase support without adding harshness.
VARIABLE VALVE CONTROL (VVC): FIT GRIP2 now features high-speed rebound using our 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.
MID-VALVE: A sophisticated mid-valve design allows more effective shaping of the compression damping curve, offering confidence-inspiring support that resists brake dive. Tested and proven on the demanding World Cup Downhill circuit, GRIP2 has been relentlessly tuned to deliver just the right amount of support without harshness, giving it another level of refinement over previous generation dampers.
FRICTION REDUCTION: During the development of GRIP2, engineering uncovered improvements that greatly reduce friction. Low friction seals help improve small bump compliance and honed, polished, and coated shaft and tube surfaces further eliminate friction for an unmatched ride experience.
Patented Air Transfer Port System. Our EVOL linear spring curve gives forks and shocks plushness off the top, extra mid-stroke support, and more tuneable bottom-out progression, allowing riders to tap into the ideal pairing of front and rear-end feel.
FLOAT EVOL Air Spring: EVOL technology from rear shocks is integrated into all FOX forks. EVOL increases negative air spring volume, specifically positioned and sized for optimum small bump sensitivity.
