Introducing the Fox FLOAT SL shock—designed for the superlight efficiency of XC riding with revamped compression and rebound valving for unparalleled traction and ride feel in its class. Embodying the essence of "Factory," it's packed with features and crafted to surpass the demands of Fox Factory-level riders, boasting the renowned Genuine Kashima Coat for superior smoothness and durability.

This FLOAT SL inherits the internals of its FLOAT and FLOAT X counterparts, then undergoes streamlining to shave off every gram possible. Equipped with a remote or 3-position switch, riders can effortlessly toggle between open, medium, and firm mode settings for optimal power transfer from the pedals. Whether tackling World Cup XCO courses or embarking on full-day marathon races, the FLOAT SL delivers elevated performance and a broader range of tuneability compared to previous lightweight MTB shocks.

Tailored for racing, the FLOAT SL features a proven EVOL air spring and a versatile form factor that accommodates XC and Trail bikes, offering ultimate suspension efficiency for riders striving to reach their full potential. (Note: Race entry fees not included.) Available in small volume (SV) and large volume (LV) variants, with SV optimized for shorter travel XC bikes and LV catering to a broader array of frames.
