CTD–that’s Foxese for “Climb, Trail and Descend”. It’s also a marked departure in the way that Fox creates forks and shocks that suck up bumps, but don’t bob and wallow annoyingly when you’re pedaling. On it’s face it’s a simpler, perhaps less tuneable, approach to tackling suspension. It is, without a doubt, the first time that Fox forks and shocks utilize the same compression damping systems.
