Fox unleash their new gen 2023 Float Family

The FLOAT series of air shocks enters its latest stage of evolution with four category-optimised options for XC, Trail, All-Mountain and Gravity.

Mountain biking has evolved. So have air shocks. And Fox’s latest Float rear shocks aim squarely at the XC and trail market. And after you watch Bryn Atkinson shred for all his worth above, dig into the new additions below…..

The all-new FLOAT SL: Ultra light. Ultra fast. XC Race ready:
As its name suggests, the FLOAT SL is the smallest and lightest shock in our lineup, offering exceptional pedaling efficiency and optimized performance for XC riding and racing. With an all-new main piston, valving, and IFP (Internal Floating Piston), FLOAT SL delivers improved traction, consistent damping, and a wider range of adjustability to suit modern riders’ preferences

The all-new FLOAT: The ultimate balance of XC weight and Trail capability:
Designed to meet the demands of weight-conscious Trail riders, FLOAT boasts a firm and efficient pedaling platform to power up the climbs combined with confidence-inspiring, trail-gripping descending capability rivaling its bigger, more aggressive sibling, FLOAT X – which it shares damper technology with. FLOAT’s in-line configuration, however, contributes to a remarkable 150-gram weight savings over FLOAT X and saves precious frame space for things like water bottles, spares, or tools. With enhanced tuning options and precise damping control, the all-new FLOAT is the ideal lightweight yet high-performance trail shock.

FLOAT SL and FLOAT join our FLOAT family, supported for All Mountain and Gravity with FLOAT X and FLOAT X2:

  • FLOAT X: Optimized for Trail and All Mountain, but capable of conquering any terrain with confidence
  • FLOAT X2: Super capable and hyper-tunable Gravity-focused shock.
