HELLLLLOOOOOO!!!!!

FOX wadda waiting for.

Do these Fox Reps not go to their LBS's? Do they not troll the internet and see how popular this segment is?

IDK seems like they missed / are missing out on a huge opportunity. Bluto, Mastadon, think BIG Fox maybe something will come to mind?

I know, name the next FOX Fat bike fork contest?

I will start: The HEFFER !

Fat bikes are a still a tiny, tiny market relative to everything else, and most fat bikes are fully rigid, probably not worth the R&D. Manitou Mastodon is a pretty good fork though.

Maintenance from snow & sand riding would probs be problematic would be my guess for a Fox.

Plus their like mentioned above small market and they’d have to outlay for another section of forks and pluck another sky high figure outta somewhere to make up for this.

I ran plus tyres 2.75” fine in an old Fox fork once. They seem fine for plus with loadsa clearance.

34 27.5+ will take upto 3.4 tyre on A 31mm rim


roughly 5mm clearance to the arch



i doubt the bluto is making rockshox any money

They're probably working on a new standard which will be 3% better, but 600% more expensive than their current standard.
