If you're looking into throwing a 36 Float 27. 5 Grip 2 Factory Boost Fork on your steed, there's a good chance you already know how a bit about the plush and supportive feel of FOX's 36 Float fork when you're charging into unforgiving territory, and pushing yourself through the gnarliest terrain you'll find without requiring a chunky dual-crown fork. And it's no surprise to us, with its stiff chassis, buttery smooth damping, and powerful stanchions that have a knack for precision tracking through the rubble, the 36 Float 27. 5 Grip 2 Factory makes light work of beefy terrain. It offers sleek, Kashima-coated stanchions, the top-tier Grip 2 damper with Variable Valve Control, low-friction seals, and a supportive mid-valve design that has a knack for resisting nasty doses of brake dive when the trail points downhill sharp. The current 36 Float with Grip 2 has lower friction levels for improved small-bump sensitivity and elevated traction on rough and rowdy trails. FOX aimed to lower the friction from its previous 36 Float by using low-friction deals alongside the silky-smooth Kashima coating. The revised mid-valve design in the Grip 2 damper also improves performance, helping the fork resist brake dive when you're coming in hot and need to ditch some speed before blasting into a berm, or cooking it down a steep rock line. The Grip 2 damper with Variable Valve Control gives you four separate knobs to independently tune the high-and-low-speed compression, as well as the high-and-low-speed rebound. The additional high-speed rebound damping circuit lets you control how fast you'd like the fork to rebound after taking a bigger hit -- a feature that sets the Grip 2 apart from FOX's FIT4 forks, allowing you to better prepare for park days and speedy DH runs that challenge ever millimeter of your forks travel. On the high/low-speed compression side of things, there's a larger range of tunability, so you can precisely dial in the level of support you desire, without any ha...
