The biggest update on the new Transfer is the redesigned clamp. The head now features a more streamlined design that allows for the post to drop further before bottoming out, thus allowing Fox to make the overall length of the post shorter in the extended position.
The new post has a 30-50mm shorter overall length than the old model depending on the amount of travel. This should allow riders to increase the amount of drop they can run by 25-50mm if they were already bottoming out the collar, depending on the frame.
The redesigned clamp also allows for a much easier saddle installation. The bolts loosen with a 4mm Allen key and pivot forward and back. This allows them to swing free from the top plate completely while staying attached to the post. The top plate can then be removed for the saddle to sit on the lower plate. Simply place the top plate back on the rails, flip the bolts up, and tighten it back down. Seat installation is no longer frustrating.
This design gives a lower stack height by allowing for a tighter interface between the clamp and the saddle. Traditional designs with a threaded bolt that threads into a t-nut run the risk of contacting the seat in rare instances due to seat flex.
Fox's new 1x lever is compact and more comfortable than its predecessors.
The other update for Fox is their new 1x lever. The lever is Matchmaker and I-SPEC EV compatible, and it also can mount up on its own. The lever is more ergonomically friendly and cables are easily inserted and can then be trimmed flush where they exit a port on the backside of the lever, eliminating the need for a cable end.
