2020 has been a big year for Fox. Throughout April, the company announced its full 2021 lineup, with updates to nearly its entire suspension offerings, including full redesigns of its Float X2 and DHX2 shocks, updates to the DPX2, plus the release of a new heavy-hitting enduro fork, the 38. While at it, the 36 and 40 were completely redone as well with brand-new castings, improved dampers and air spring tweaks—even the often-overlooked 34 got its very own Grip2 treatment because trail forks deserve nice dampers too. And just for good measure, the Transfer dropper post was redesigned for lighter weight, shorter overall lengths and improved serviceability. See? Very busy. If you missed our coverage of Fox’s 2021 product launches, you can find it here, and here.
Today, we’re going to get into the all-new Float X2 shock. But since we’ve already covered the specific technical updates in that first link above, we’re going to skip all the getting-to-know-you stuff and dive right into ride impressions.
A little bit of change that a lot of us will love
