Hi guys

I have a set of fox 36 factory fit 29er 2018 forks that are currently 160 travel . What is the max travel the body can go too ? I'm wanting to fit the grip2 damper side into them and increase the travel too 180 but read the 27+/29er forks can only go to 170, can any confirm this and is it just a simple case of buy the damper and airshaft and swap them out , from what I can see there's only 1 grip2 damper and it does all travel up to 180 .

Thanks dave

The 36 29 can only go up to 170mm and requires a "long travel" set of lowers.

The new grip2 damper works for all travel ranges on the 36. The 180mm is for 27.5.

That new damper is great. You should check it out. Loving mine.

It's dependant on your fork Rake, check your fox ID code and see if your fork is 51 or 44 the 51 rake can be extended to 170mm max on 29er with a new air shaft.
