Fox went all in with their redesign of the Fox 34 platform, and they're really delivering on trail shocks with the new Float X and DHX. Here's the low down.
Party in the back
A shiny new fork is nice, but true performance is about what's going on in the back as well. And Fox have two new rear shocks for 2022. The new Float X has been developed for aggressive trail riders. The lightweight package offers high-tech damping with fade free performance.
The Float X has a new chassis and damper, with a high-flow main piston. The larger air sleeve bore will allow lower pressure for the same support, and there are volume spacers available with even smaller increments so you can truly get the ride you want.
Fox have an MCU bottom out bumper in there for the big sends, with a numbered 12-position low speed compression (LSC) adjuster. There's more rebound adjustment range compared to a DPX2, and an independent firm mode circuit, with two positions.
Along with a few changes like better valve placement to suit more frames, less noise from the damper and a hydraulic top out feature, the Float X is ready to hit the trails with a high-performance package and a huge range of user adjustability, all at a fighting weight.
The Float X is available in Factory and Performance Elite models. Trunnion mounts and more sizes are available in the Factory models. Pricing is $835 for Performance Elite, and $969 for Factory models.
