FOX 34 Float 831 - Eurobike 2013

Aug 28, 2013
by Mike Levy  

A Burlier 831

FOX's 831 dirt jump and slope fork has, up until now, been based on their 32 chassis, with the 32 referring to the diameter of the fork's stanchion tubes. The result was a relatively light overall package - FOX claims just 3.67LB with a tapered steerer - although many wondered why FOX didn't utilize their torsionally stiffer 34 chassis given the fork's intentions, including some of their sponsored riders. 2014 will see a brand new 831 model that does exactly that, with it being based around the burlier 34 fork chassis. The weight penalty is slight - FOX says it comes in at 4.26LB - but word from their riders is that they are noticing a dramatic improvement in rigidity, especially when landing off-kilter. Interestingly, they are also reporting a pronounced boost in rigidity on take off, which doesn't come as a surprise when you consider the loading forces that likely occur when a rider sets up for a difficult trick on a jump face.

FOX 34 Float 831 Details

• Intended use: dirt jump
• Travel: 100mm/4''
• FIT CTD damper
• Dirt jump specific valving
• Extra progressive air spring
• Kashima coating
• Taper steerer tube only
• 15QR thru-axle
• Weight: 4.26LB
• MSRP: TBA

The 34 Float 831 is far from a standard 34 internally, and you'd be mistaken for thinking that its FIT CTD cartridge makes use of stock 2014 valving. Yes, the fork's CTD dial still features the three 'Climb', 'Trail', and 'Descend' denotations, but FOX has drastically altered the latter two
damping circuits to better suit the 831's intentions. As you might expect, both the Trail and Descend settings see a far firmer tune that is more in line with what a dirt jump or slope rider is looking for, that being a much more supportive stroke that not only allows for maximum pop off of a lip but also able to absorb overshooting a landing or coming in nose heavy. The fork's air spring volume has also been adjusted with this in mind, and it features a far more progressive ramp up for the very same reason.

While the new 34 Float 831 does make a lot of sense, it should be mentioned that it will only be available with a tapered steerer tube. This fact means that some riders who own steel dirt jump frames with a standard 1 1/8" head tube are out of luck. It is for this reason that FOX will keep the current 32 831, with its optional straight 1 1/8" steerer tube, in the lineup until demand fades.

 so youre only appealing to about 20% of the market MAX, still using the 15mm axle that is part of the reason the 32s are flimsy as shit, and still refuse to give us a fork that has a high/low compression adjustment instead of a CTD, which makes no sense as you arent going to change spring firmness on the fly at all on a dj bike.

no wonder people are resorting to finding 5 year old 36 floats and lowering them, even that 'old technology' works better for our needs

 i have a 2012 Fox 32 float at 120 and its a rlc. its worked great on my dj ive never had any problems with any of my fox forks.

 yes Npacholko and then do a crown grab and unlock it for the landing this seems sensible.

 I saw it a while ago an was thinking about getting one for the ticket s then I realized I have a revelation with a 20MM axel! And I lowered it.

 1) give us a 20mm thru axle.
2) make it 36. you just wasting a hell of a lot of development and testing to only make the stanchions 2mm wider. we pinkbikers expect better from you, Fox.

 Glad to see the gimmicks don't work on everyone. I don't know much about Fox, but it sounds like they're going the way of Marz', strong showings at first, then absolute shit to follow.

 this is highly upsetting, ive only been waiting like 2 years for a 34 831, and now i find out, its just shit, and not compatible with my bike. thanks fox, dropped the ball. unfortunate.

 Yeah.. the 34's still break, 36 all the way in my opinion. If you ride dirtjumps/slopestyle, things are gonna break, period.
  • 9 2
 36 for life. Float 36 lowered to 80mm, Hi/Low Compression, super stiff and my DJ bikes still weighs in under 27lbs. Not sure what those guys at Fox are thinking. If someone is dropping $1K for a fork to hit big ol' stuff like the Crankworx SS course, I wanna KNOW it's not going to break. Unlike the Fox pro riders, if we the customers break something no one will replace it. They say it shouldn't have broken we must have been abusing it. Make it stronger then.

Oh wait, Tapered steerer, can't use it anyways. Wah wah wah.
  • 9 2
 tapered steertube, wider stanchions... and they still refuse to put a 20mm through axle on it?? fox must be making money on the conversion kits or something.. hope this bombs and they go back to the drawing board to put something worth spending money on

 I think their biggest mess up was with the CTD. Everything else seems fine with the exception of the tapered steerer. I don't have a DJ bike but even I see that that was a stupid move.

 Maybe just go 15mm 34 float, 20mm 36 float and 20mm 34 float. Then you can decide what's best.

 Dear fox, Do your self a Favor.
Hire someone who knows the Dirt jump market. To make your products I don't know. Appealing?
Your destroying the 831 by making everything new about it useless to your market. Tappered and 15mm and CTD THE f*ck IS THAT?

 A bunch of the fox slope riders were hinting at this and I was stoked to see it out soon. But now I agree, I'm pretty disappointing to see they only have tapered steer and 15 mm axel. I just purchased a 2013 float 36 and lowered it to 100 mm. It still has a 20 mm axle and its pretty light under 5 pounds. I know a 34 travel fork tuned for dirtjumping would be a better fork for my hard tail needs, but I guess I just cant have one haha.

 If his frame is only 1 1/8, this is probably a pricey fork. Anyone who is affording a top of the range current fork probably has a tapered head tube.

 Its on a Santa Cruz Jackal. I presume that doesn't equate to a good enough frame to run taper?

  • 6 0
 2011 & CTD is pointless on a dirt jump/4x fork. Why would you want to adjust from climb, trail or descent when all you need is high and low speed compression on a dj/4x fork.

I wonder why Fox even make these if they are such a niche fork. They can't sell that many surely?
  • 2 1
 You can have a shiny new frame with 1 1/8" headtube, for at least one segment... I freaking dare you to find a 24" specific bike with a tapered head tube.
  • 8 2
 1 1/8 frames that have 44mm internal diameter headset, can also run a tapered fork with AN EXTERNAL LOWER CUP
  • 14 4
 Suspension companies build forks out of fork parts, not out of thin air and rainbows. Sitting in the Fox factory are giant bins of 32 mm chasis, air springs, RLC/CTD dampers, and for years Fox built and sold a "dirt jump" fork out of those very same parts, and the difference was in the valving. As in, shim. Orifice. Needle. Very small, cheap differences.

Now the 34 is the hot ticket. The 831, whatever stanchion size, is always going to be built from spare Float parts. Get over it. The number of high spending park/dirt jumpers in the world is reletively small. 4X and slalom racers have been landing huge (albeit smooth) on the 32 for years. Fox is not going to design you a fork from the ground up.

Start an aftermarket company that cheaply adapts the new 36 float down to 100 mm, complainers.
  • 2 0
 i thought you could already easily lower the 36 float to 100mm with travel spacers..?
  • 3 1
 so they wont design a fork for whats its intended to do? i understand that its cheaper to produce with the parts they have around their factory but then why in the hell do they charge a premium? maybe because its kashima.

 They charge a premium because it's fox... Stop buying their stuff and they might realize it's overpriced.

 ehhh, i get good ass deals on all my fox stuff. so ill pass (as in keep buying).. the fact that i can get em for cheap, a great chassis to start with, and also a highly tunable fork (by fox, push, or avy.. hell, anyone!) seems like a win win for me.

 stop whining about ctd so much just tune it on one of the settings you like and dont touch it . i agree about the 15mm axle thats just stupid and uncommon 20m is the way to go but 34 mm stanctions are still bigger than rock shox and lets face it no one is going to buy marzo dj forks theyre just too heavy for its application if your against it so much just buy a domain "you can buy shorter ti springs or cut the one that comes with it my buddy did it and it looked sick and was fairly light because he put a ti spring "FROM FOX IN IT" it simple get a conversion kit for the 15mm and buy a new frame theonly decent frame with a 11/8 head tube is diety anyway

 Ok, so your saying a *Deity (yes i'm correcting you here) frame is the only frame worth buying in 1-1/8th? Haha NS Majesty isn't good enough? My Santa Cruz Jackal? What if you own an older frame with 1 1/8th headtube or don't want to sell the frame for some as others put, "thrown together with spare parts" forks? I agree Deity are good but other brands are just as good. Some of us aren't made of money to change a frame, fork, headset and hub/adaptor everytime a new standard is released.

Also, use punctuation. Its difficult to understand your misunderstood thoughts.
  • 2 1
 Tbh if there is enough demand for it (which there obviously is) then I don't see why fox would not offer a 1-1/8th inch in the future.

 i dont look into those much the only good ns stuff is theire part colors and hubs personally i dont like jackals either no offence but pivot points, p3s,and some transitons ,banshee amps and the best dj/slope by far is either rocky slayer slop or ticket s jiust my thought and hub conversion kit are only abt 3o bucks anyway i highly doubt you actually feel your axle flexing anyway

 Hello FOX, I'm not sure if you've been listening but people don't want the FKN CTD!!! Maybe Fred who never wants to turn a spanner is all over it but you're loosing a lot of customers with this shit. If I was buying a fork tomorrow I'd be getting RS or Marz and i've been a loyal fox guy for years. Shiny gold coatings can only carry you so far.

 CTD that people who ride this fork don't need, tapered steerer only, mega expensive!! Looks like Fox are onto a winner!! All the people need who ride this type of fork need is stiffness, good damping, light weight and good value for money. Looks like they have missed a trick here.

 Climb Trail Descend. I'm with you when you say I'll stick with my DJ1. I'm incredibly ashamed... 1 1/8 straight aluminum steerer with internal tapering and a 20mm axle would make this fork a must want... Also ditching the CTD and putting a small rebound and compression damper would make a lot of riders set on what they need... Even Rockshox with the Argyle was a simple design and is a perfect fork.
  • 4 0
 Why CTD on this kind of fork? Who needs that kind of thing when dirtjumping/street is conserned? It just makes it more expensive and there's more things to worry about. Keep it simple. Plus 15mm axle seems like an odd choice for this fork...
Guess it works for someone. But I have to admit that it looks sweet.

 If you're a DJer and you put these on your bike all you're saying is you have more money than sense. Give me a pair of Manitou Circus- amazing value and performance- they have 20mm axle and standard steerer. These Fox forks are nothing short of a joke.

 Why create a DJ fork with a tapered steerer only, when the majority of DJ frames still use a 1 1/8" headtube? I can live with ctd and a 15mm axle as I have hubs that can be converted. Seem like Fox have missed the point of this fork.
  • 2 0
 Fox you've overdone it, as Dj'ers we want simple, stiff, and light. No need for all the extra features, they will rarely be utilized. If only they would listen to the riders who actually purchase their parts. On a go forward basis you are still going to see people who can afford this fork opt for something else such as an Argyle or Circus, less expensive, no large performance difference when riding through jumps, and is eligible to be mated with their current frame(s) and hubs. 15mm and taper come on!
  • 3 2
 This fork was originally designed for the now forgotten 4x discipline, not for dirt jumping, but now its Fox's dj fork it needs threshold lockout and a 20mm axle, no fancy CTD crapola, and kashima coating kind of goes against the idea of the fork - why use extra low volume air chamber and firm damping but then provide buttery smooth ultra expensive low friction stanchions - anodized ones would help firm the fork up! And how many hardtails have tapered steerers!? just silly!

 CTD is there coz its the only damper Fox has for the 34 and I think I'll trust Fox to beef up the damper just fine whatever knob-end dials sit on top. 15mm Q/R axle is there coz the 34 lowers only come as that option - far bigger problem Fox. Wifey runs an 831 on her Yeti DJ. Fine for her, too flexy for me. Even with her riding I can see wear on the axle where it twists/flexes. I'll stick with my 36Talas's running at 120mm and put up with the slacker HA. Stiff as I need it. Axle clamped both ends. No twist.

 The reason for CTD, 15mm axle and everything else is probably because they didn't want to develop an entirely new fork for DJ, which is a small market. So they just took the existing Fox 34 chassis and adapted the internals to DJ. Cheap, easy and now you have a new product. Atleast it saves the trouble of doing the modifications by yourself. I think the reason for Kashima is the marketing decision that all their aftermarket forks have it?

 For DJ: 34 yes, Taper no, CTD No. Just release a 26" wheel specific float 34R 1 1/8 OR Taper and you have a winner. Custom travel adjust from 60-140. Covers all bases, simple, clean, light and strong. "Keep it simple". Thats the name of my company and the ethos works!!!

 Bike companies need to learn that dirt jumpers are massive cheapskates and have massively unreal expectations of how hard they ride. Your landing on smooth transitions you don't need a 36mm 20mm axled fork if the EWS racers dont get over yourselves. Most of you probably have 2006 dirt jam pros covered in monster stickers.
  • 1 1
 It's not that they might not be strong enough for most people. Like when you have 20mm axle, finding hubs and using the ones you already have is easier. Plus it's stronger so why trying to develop new standard that doesn't have any benefits?

 I liked my 32 831, until I bent the crown like I did on a previous pair of float xtt with qr :-( I want the 34 but want rc2 and 20mm bolt threw, or maybe I'll have to use my 36 talas rc2, the 15mm bolt threw is made by shimano, so they make money from them to, wether from making or seeking the rights to diff to make them, either way fix is not thinking of the customer out they would have never bought the 32 831 in first place an bought out a 34 rc2 with 20mm.

At least Manitou knows what people want.... 1 1/8" steerer, high/low spd compression, 20mm hex-lock axle that whoops Fox's 15mm ass. That's all you need when you're popping doubles and boosting transfers. Did I mention Manitou forks are actually affordable?!

 setup your circus with soloair instead of spring+air and you have a nice fork with a 1.8 kg weight )

 Fox your wasting your time with the 34 platform. Make a 36 dj specific fork and make your customers happy.
